The weather maybe too good to go into cinema, but the film "Der Name der Leute".(Le nom des gens, Patric Leclerc 2010)is incredible in it's way to handle with political and society tabus and personal traumata in a very human and humourous way!

Places in the Heart - watched it (again) with my wife last night. Seems to really capture the feeling of 1930's Texas, the struggles and social context of that moment of time. Very "Americana" to me.
Gangs of New York - very violent, had to skip some nudie parts, but a very insightful film that again seems to really bring to life the feeling / understanding of that place and time in American history.

Has anybody seen the film " Das SchmuckstÃ¼ck" (Potiche) with Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu?
I missed the official playing time and would have to go into an afternoon presentation, what I don't like really!
So, your experiences, please!!

No, and I can t help you Rise cause Depardieu isn t my "cup of tea"
last films seen
- 6 hour documentary about Monthy Pyton, in which I did discover that Led Zep and Pink Floyd financed sacred graal, and Georges Harrison Brian s life.
- Brian s life - Monthy pyton

I have been in it , LR!
Was a nice meeting with Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu. Like "chanson d'amour'. 7 Points. Don't like Gerard Depardieu?? I think as an actor, he is very good!! Private might be a bit: Mon Dieu, Depardieu! But unique.
Bright Star sounds very my style. But I missed it, Marylin!
Yesterday I bought 6 dvd's, most english, but I do not really like watching dvd's. It has something of cold coffee!

Woody Allen is certainly a talented filmmaker. I think certain Allen films are an acquired taste. I do love "Sleeper," and I thought "Celebrity" was surprisingly great!

Last day I have seen "Thor" with some youngsters on my side.
The film might have been called "Sledgehammer", because this is the maintool of the goodlooking god(who has his 90, or lets say 95 k). Thor is banned by his father (Anthony Hopkins) in this kind of 3D "twighlight of the gods" into the american desert and has to get his tool again, which is fixed into the ground and can not be lifted even by the american military. To lead the story to the top Thor meets an american scientist(Natalie Portman) . In the end Thor is a god again in his god's world, but his restless spirit can only be calmed by the blind seer, who sees the woman, how she is searching for him.
Director: Kenneth Branagh

Yes. I saw "THOR" today as well, with my two boys, one of their girlfriends, and my wife in tow.
I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been a longtime Thor fan. I collect vintage comics, and own quite a few Thor comics - some dating from the mid 60's. The set up for the coming Avengers movie was clever, and the special effects were completely insane. They used like 7 different effect houses for all the CG shots. It was absolutely nuts.
However, seeing as I really enjoy CG, animation, etc I was really into it.
Green Street Hooligans - lots and lots and lots of F-words, but the foray into the "Firm" world of English Football was fascinating. I have always loved films that take me into an exotic location, or sub-genre of society, etc - a location or culture I am unfamiliar with.

@ jared, yes celebrity was a surprising good one.
But this one is really on the vein of Manhattan.

I'm looking forward to this Woody Film. But very funny was for me, that Owen Wilson talked like Woody Allen in the trailer. That's not an obvious similarity!

I just watched an old favourite of mine over the weekend-"the day of the jackal"
