    This is a place to post on anything not GT related, to chat, vent or whatever it crosses your mind and that you would like to share with friends....


    Have you seen the movie 'Das Leben der Anderen' ? A German movie, really good.
    It has won an Oscar to the best foreing film.


    Feel free to highjack (sp?) the topic..... laugh

    I have never tried them though, nor do I have any intention.

    And what do you think of the Clint Eastwood movies, specially the japanese part?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letters_from_Iwo_Jima

    As an actor I do not think he is great but as a director I love him.

    Oh, The lives of Others is an excellent movie.
    It is about Stasi in East Germany during the Cold War.

    I liked the "japanese part' better.

    I am a movie addict. Some of the good ones I saw recently:
    In the Valley of Eliah (sp)
    Eastern Promises
    Into Great Silence
    Katyn

    When I was a young girl growing up in Europe, I used to love
    the animated series Il etait une fois L'homme, on TV
    Recently, I was able to enjoy it with my kids - and again fell in love with it.

    Here is something I found on the internet about it:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Once_Upon_a_Time..._Man

    I do not know if it is possible to purchase it in the states, my copies came from Europe, where you can purchase a lot of old (and not only old) good movies as a promo with your daily paper or weekly magazine. I think Isa will know what I am talking about :-)
    If you can get your hands on this one, I highly reccomend it. My set consists of about 30 CD's each with a story about 40 min long.

    Ania,

    I would love to get a hold of that one and pretty much the rest of the Once Upon a Time series. We have Once Upon a Time ... Life and my kids love it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Once_Upon_a_Time..._Life

    If anyone figures how to get hold of any for the series in US, let me know. I tried searching for it but came empty handed. I may try in Europe this summer.

    Yeah, this is fun! I'm a big foreign film lover since a took a class in college. I was in love with Gerard DePardieu about 20 years ago, not so much now!

    A funny: In my 20's a friend and I were at the movie rental store (back in the stone ages when you had to go to those places). She asked me what kind of movie and I said Foreign and walked off the find that section. She thought I said "porn" and stood stunned in that very spot until I returned about 5 minutes later with a Gerard flick. She took one look and then busted out laughing and told me what she thought I said!

    Alas, I haven't had much time for foreign films or anything else fun like that lately!!!!
