Call Me By Your Name

Beautiful film directed by  Luca Guadagnino and Brilliantly acted by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer. I was not aware that it is based on a book but will look up the book now and read it.  This movie is bound to become a classic and hope it wins at least Best Actor or Best Picture.  The movie is sensual and deals with first love and heartbreak.

Summary: “It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel).
Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart.
One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched
splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever”.

Leon Bridges

A  Brilliant New Singer who reminds me of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding.   His music gives me a 60’s vibes that is rare to find in today’s music.

 

 

 

 

 

Dirty Dancing

I miss Patrick Swayze so much!! 😥 I fell head over heels for him and the movie in general when I saw it. Of course, as a then 5 year old I wasn’t allow to see it  when it first came out (lol), but a few years lady I did and it has become One of my All Time favorite films!!  “Nobody puts Baby in a corner”  😉 

 

I miss You Patrick and Forever Will! 😥

The Promise (movie)

Deeply moving film staring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale. This movie not only shows the Atrocities committed by the Turks and the Ottoman Empire against the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Armenians but also how people overcome the biggest obstacles in life.  I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to live in a war torn country and loosing all the people you love.

I love this review by a youtube user.

“I just watched The Promise in the theatre today… I’m writing in an objective way, and as a film expert I can assure you it’s a flawless movie It’s authentic, powerful and romantic This movie doesn’t just show the dark side of the Ottoman Empire during the war as many would presume, but it also shows the unconditional friendship between the two nations and how help was still there during those dark times It also shows how love was the key to survival and how love always wins (no matter what race, religion or gender) I also praise the cast & crew for such great script, visuals and acting This movie is definitely worth watching And don’t judge it or rate it if you haven’t watched it Be fair!”

Mario Benedetti – No Te Rindas

 

No te rindas, aún estás a tiempo

de alcanzar y comenzar de nuevo,

aceptar tus sombras,

enterrar tus miedos,

liberar el lastre,

retomar el vuelo.

no te rindas que la vida es eso,

continuar el viaje,

perseguir tus sueños,

destrabar el tiempo,

correr los escombros,

y destapar el cielo.

No te rindas, por favor no cedas,

aunque el frío queme,

aunque el miedo muerda,

aunque el sol se esconda,

y se calle el viento,

aún hay fuego en tu alma

aún hay vida en tus sueños.

Porque la vida es tuya y tuyo también el deseo

porque lo has querido y porque te quiero

porque existe el vino y el amor, es cierto.

Porque no hay heridas que no cure el tiempo.

Abrir las puertas,

quitar los cerrojos,

abandonar las murallas que te protegieron,

vivir la vida y aceptar el reto,

recuperar la risa,

ensayar un canto,

bajar la guardia y extender las manos

desplegar las alas

e intentar de nuevo,

celebrar la vida y retomar los cielos.

No te rindas, por favor no cedas,

aunque el frío queme,

aunque el miedo muerda,

aunque el sol se ponga y se calle el viento,

aún hay fuego en tu alma,

aún hay vida en tus sueños

porque cada día es un comienzo nuevo,

porque esta es la hora y el mejor momento.

Porque no estás solo, porque yo te quiero.

– Mario Benedetti

A Love life at 13 years old?!

Get the hell out of here!! The actress from stranger things is a phony.  Now that she is famous she blames her fans for supposedly  “not leaving her alone” when I have seen her plaster her obsession for that Disgusting, Fame whoring musically kid all over social media.  AND SAFE THE AGE EXCUSE CARD!!! She used her co star Finn Wolfhard, A REAL Talented kid, to make that talentless kid jealous. That is why many of her fans got pissed, because they feel a disturbing, stuck little Prick  is emerging, like the trashy perverted kid she is dating. Why is she “dating” this kid????! Because his adopted family is LOADED!! And Regardless of her age, her family raises red flags and by dating a well known bully who constantly harasses his pretty fans for nudes, she lowered her standards  lowered than Lohan. Also this kid she’s dating, his family are Hardcore TRUMP supporters. Even actor David Harbour is expressing concern for her future because frankly it is looking very bleak right now.
