Over Christmas I finally took a break and went into "movie zone".
For me that means suddenly being a potato_couch and indulging in 2-3 or even 4 movies a day with my wife! :)
I'm not normally a movie person because a) there's not much around Netflix or Canal+ i find worth b) mainly because watching movies to me seems like numbing myself from pain... c) I'm too busy with other jobs.
However: cinema and movies have its space within my domain of interests, may it be art, philosophy and communicating messages (often of universal nature).
I'm particularly fond of italian and french cinema, american author cinema, it appears anything from the 60's and 70's to be quite interesting.
How about you?
So I came across Luis de Funes, incredible actor i must say. I have seen his movies in German when younger, then I discover him in French today, and voila its love at 'second sight'.
I find him very fascinating, poignant, expressive, it might be easy this days to judge him well since he is widely recognized as a genius... It wasn't like that back then were he was facing harsh critics.
Anyone that lives in France should take time to see him, find a glimpse of this years, well the 60's and 70's, how they were shaped and how society was back then. Nostalgic?
Besides Louis de Futon and some Truffaut movies (quite distinguished by itself) I'm wondering:
What are your favorite french movies. or any movies from the 60's 70's?
Anything modern but not post-modern, you understand my meaning: a time where actors still relied on their gestures, elegance and mimics to get across a point.
