Baywatch (& the current heatwave)

On days like these, when the temperature hits about 34°C, I’m not able to do much. I try to move as little as possible, avoid the outdoors, although the indoors is not always a great idea either. If I could, I’d love to just go sleep and wake up when it’s all over (so probably in the fall). I also try not to do anything that would require too much energy or brain activity as my brain is not properly oxygenated to be able to fully perform. So, with not enough oxygen in my system and feeling half asleep, I thought these are the perfect prerequisitions to go and watch the new Baywatch! So I did.… Read More Baywatch (& the current heatwave)

New York, Actually and how I fell in love again

Sometimes inspiration lies in truly unexpected places. And it’s not true just for the movies, but for books, too. As I was going through yet another heartbreak early this year caused by yet again the same man (let’s call him my Mr. Big as that seems accurate), I felt exhausted and in need of some love.. Love that would inspire me and give me hope that even I will be able to fall in love again, one day not too far away from now. Although it seemed very unlikely. For the starters, I didn’t really want to.… Read More New York, Actually and how I fell in love again

In the Heat of the Night: How a 50 Years Old Film Is Still Relevant Today

Yes, I broke the spell and for a change been very lucky with the films I’ve seen in the past two weeks. Inspired by I Am Not Your Negro, I decided to delve deeper into the race politics and picked In The Heat of the Night to start with, which has sparked a completely new wave of excitement for my mission (or challenge). This year marks the 50th anniversary of In the Heat of the Night’s release and I couldn’t help but think how relevant the film is even today… which is… kinda sad. It’s been 50 years and the world doesn’t seem to have done much progress. We are still discussing racial issues. Fifty freaking years later. We are still discussing equality. Can you believe it?… Read More In the Heat of the Night: How a 50 Years Old Film Is Still Relevant Today

Hola! aka Lessons learned in Madrid: Part 2

La Mallorquina, Madrid’s most famous bakery & patisserie, where among other things, they serve the best Napolitanas, which are a must. Especially, if once again, you are a chocolate lover like me. But being popular with locals and tourists alike, it gets incredibly busy at La Mallorquina! Remember that scene from Eat Pray Love where Julia Roberts tries to order some coffee in the busy café in Rome? Yep. That sort of busy. … Read More Hola! aka Lessons learned in Madrid: Part 2

Hola! aka Lessons learned in Madrid: Part 1

Spain has been one of my oldest dreams, and inspired by watching The Limits of Control where the Lone Man wanders through Madrid and later on through Seville, I thought ‘hey! I want to do that, too!’ Sadly, Seville didn’t fit into the plans this time, but there’s always the next time, right? Or so I thought. In fact, I didn’t fall in love with Spain as much as I thought I will. I was pretty sure it’s gonna be similar to the love story I’ve been living with France, but the truth is, it seems there’s only one country like France – and that’s France. That being the very 1st lesson learnt. But there were many more to come.. So let’s take them one by one. … Read More Hola! aka Lessons learned in Madrid: Part 1
