Polleke is an ordinary 11 year old girl, wich makes her life and thoughts so extraordinary
Polleke is an ordinary 11 year old girl raised by her single mom and always defending her drug-addicted dad. She wants to be a poet and is in love with Mimoun, a Maroccan boy in her class, with Africa eyes.
Take the time to see this film and you won't regret it: It's funny, moving and full of great characters and even greater dialogue. It's a love story, a coming of age story, a feel good movie and an educational one. My favorite film this year!
Heaven will reduce you to silence
Contains Spoiler Because songs are popping into your head as soon as you read the title, most people go into the theatre singing and humming. But most won't leave the theatre that way; Heaven will reduce you to silence.
Philippa Paccard (Cate Blanchett) is an English teacher at a high school in Italy, where thirteen-year-old children are already addicted to drugs. By placing a bomb in the office of a rich businessman, who is at the top of the chain of drug suppliers, she tries to put a stop to this. Even if it's only for the completely crushed look on the face of Cate Blanchetts Philippa when she finds out that, in stead of the drug lord, four innocent people have died with the bomb exploding, you would have to see this film (If it were up to me, she would get the Oscar right now). The only warning I have to give you is that no matter how action packed this all sounds heaven is a very low motion film. There is a lot happening, but that is not the point. The film is solely about Philippa, about her emotions en the relationship that develops between her and the young police officer Filippo (Giovanni Ribisi) who helps her escape.
Heaven is full of beautiful pictures of Italian landscapes, full of wonderful dramatic moments, en only when it is absolutely necessary, a well-written piece of dialogue. There is nothing too much or too little about heaven and that is something you don't find much in cinemas anymore. My favourite film of 2002.
Isn't She Great (2000)
She may have been great, but that doesn't mean this movie is
As much as I love Bette Midler, even she can't save this film or make the character any less flat. This is not a story and these are not characters we can relate to. We rush through a lifetime of moments without ever getting into the story. The only light point in this whole fiasco is Stockard Channing who manages to make her character as round as she can get in this awfully flat story. In one word: UUULLLLggggh
