Now, I'm not a big foreign film fan (sorry for the alliteration), but within this last few days, I've gotten a chance to expand my cinematic horizons.
The first one was "Kuch Kuch Hota Hoi," which is a Bollywood film. It's long, and quite cheesy (the college garb was hilarious) but quite hooking.
The second one I saw today in Final Project class was a Norweigan film, "Elling." Simply magnificient. As a writer, that's the kind of project, the kind of story, I can only hope to write. The acting, the cinematography...all of it. Pure gold.
For those who haven't seen Elling, well, I guess it's a bit of a cross between Sideways (in characterization), As Good As It Gets (in how 4 seperate people come to be a nice core group of support for each other) and American Pie (in some of Kjell's woman-and-food hungry humor).
Fantastic movies, both of them.
