Love Actually goes East-European
28 December 2011 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Ever since the British succeeded in making a recent but so memorable holiday movie as the already-classic Love Actually, Hollywood is trying to make their own version of this kind of romantic comedy with a fusion of life stories that come together during some special day (from the top of my head "Valentine's day" and "New Year's eve"). However, they all appear typical - a bunch of famous names and forced stories, just into making profit and not caring about the message much.

But now, the European cinematography strikes again, with the beautiful movie "Listy do M.". The biggest advantage of this movie is its credibility. Of course, it does have some twists that probably wouldn't happen in real life (but okay, it's the magical Christmas time) but the unknown actors and the language that it's not English (which we're used to hear all the time in the cinema) make you believe that these stories also happen to normal people and not just in movies - while obtaining top quality in the technical part of filmmaking.

Also, before seeing it I was afraid the stories would be the same old ones. I like how the creators thought outside the box and had some interesting twists. So all in all - fantastic work and I'm hoping to see more work from this director!
