Movie Time!


Actually, we are invited to a birthday. My sister-in-law (one from the five!) has turned sixty and wants to have a big party. Of course, with everything needed: vaccinated, recovered or tested! Although this is an involuntary event for me. But, as I know, life is not a wish concert, and there is a “must” sometimes!

But before I go on this unforgivable trip, let me introduce two movies I have watched lately. These two might be known to you, because, they were made some years ago. Or also it might be not! Anyway, here they are:

First, it is HER, the movie. With Joaquin Phoenix, famous for his master play in Joker (at least for me.) He plays a totally different role and shows his skill in the matter of making a character.

And the story is a fascinating idea, to show the relationship, if ever, between human and machine. Between a man (Theodore Twombly) and a voice in computer: the unique erotic voice of Scarlett Johansson.

Her is a 2013 American science-fiction romantic drama film written, directed, and produced by Spike Jonze. It marks Jonze’s solo screenwriting debut. The film follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who develops a relationship with Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), an artificially intelligent virtual assistant personified through a female voice. The film also stars Amy AdamsRooney MaraOlivia Wilde, and Chris Pratt. Wikipedia

The second is The Best Offer, by Giuseppe Tornatore, an intriguing movie with a surprising end. Some say it is in Hitchcock manner! Anyhow, very mysterious and gripping. Worth watching.

The Best Offer (ItalianLa migliore offerta – entitled Deception in the UK) is a 2013 English-language Italian psychological thriller film written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The film stars Geoffrey RushJim SturgessSylvia Hoeks, and Donald Sutherland. The music score was composed by Ennio Morricone. Wikipedia

I hope you will enjoy one or both! Anyhow, I wholeheartedly wish you all a great weekend.
