The first part of this movie may seem boring and you may think it non sense. It shows the life of a woman, Eva (Julia-Louis Dreyfus) who is divorced and hasn't had an opportunity to marry again, she hasn't found anyone. She is a massagist, that has to listen all day to stories of others. She also has a great friend and a daughter that is going soon to college. 

Everything changes when she meets a woman, who is going to become a client, at a party, and also a non-attractive guy, Albert (James Gandolfini) that is going to change her life. The thing about the film is that there's not an explanation, like other romantic comedies of the relationship between Eva and Albert, it's more like anything happens and everything seems like a couple who old-dating (going out to a Restaurant or to the cinema). A sudden thing changes the movie. Eva realizes, by a guacamole plate, she is dating the ex from the woman she met at the party and is massaging and this one talks nothing but mean things of Albert. 

The point of this movie is that it does not have lots of ups and downs, it is not tragic or very comedic, it is just how a relationship and the life is in lots of cases. Kind and serene it goes on and on.... Of course that by reading or whatching that you could tell this is not interesting but this movie is filled with an amazing script and supported by an amazing Jean-Louis Dreyfus and a giant, magnificent performance by the missed actor James Gandolfini. If they weren't the ones doing this film it could probably have been another thing but the director and writer Nicole Holofcener knew it and did a great job with the actors.

In conclusion this film stands out because of the performances and also because the story is a tipical from classic comedies but it has a different point, the suffering is not the thing the director wants to focus in, she wants to focus on the story, the people, the feelings, the acts of everyday life and the ones that happen once but that stay forever, like saying goodbye to your daughter because she is going to college. Worth seeing, entrataining and overall fond and kind.

roma | 2018

A really good (and must) film to watch during the holidays. This is apparently an ordinary story told by an immense Alfonso Cuarón. The movie was shot in black and white and it is also beautifully shot in long takes. Fundamentally Roma is the tale of two women, Cleo (play by Yalitza Aparicio) working as a live-maid for a beleaguered upper middle-class family in Mexico City. It is an autobiographical story from the director and during the film you can see that there are signs of tensions and dysfunction from both the family and the maid. Those little things are hints and demonstrations of the feelings of the characters. The man of the house (Antonio) can't stand being at his own house, you can see that by the way he parks his car, and his wife  (Sofía) is struggling to keep the family together. 
So, meanwhile Antonio keeps travelling for what, supposedly, are business trips, a stressed Sofia one day tells the children it would be a good idea to write to their dad, imploring him to…

mamma mia! here we go again! | 2018

Ten years after... here we go again! Mamma Mia! 'cause is that kind of memory that you will recall from your summer. 
Besides from the original cast with Donna Sheridan - Meryl Streep - as the main character along with her daughter Sophie - Amanda Seyfried - in this film we have the young Donna (Lily James), Bill (Josh Dylan), Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner),  Rosie (Alexa Davies), Tanya (Jessica Keenan Wynn) and Sophie's grandma (Cher). The past and the present from this characters is combined and intertwined and keep you on the edge of your seat during 2 hours. 
Normally, sequels from movies aren't as good as the first one, but in my own opinion, this film is as good as the first one mainly because of the amazing performance that Lily James - young Donna - offers us. She totally knows how to step in Meryl Streep's shoes (and that's not easy as Meryl may probably one of the best actresses ever). She has charisma and accomplishes the mission of making yo…

the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society | 2018

This film is based on the book written by Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows where every chapter is a letter written by a different character. 
Juliet Ashton (Lily James) is the main character of this lovely film that portrays the story from some citizens from Guernsey Island that became a family when the nazis occupied the island during the II World War. As they had taken away all what they loved, they started a literary club where they discussed about books and life while they refuged from the demands of the nazis. 
Juliet Ashton, a londoner who lost her parents when she was a girl, meets this literary club through a letter that Dawsey Adams, a citizen from the island, sends to her when he found out her name and address in a book from the local library that had been abandoned. Juliet that loves reading books, but also is aspiring to be a writer thinks that visting the island can be her inspiration to do so as she is curious about this literary club and its story so she asks her best fri…
