Just a small treat for you, blogger friends, who have watched a few / some / many / all / of these extraordinary movies…
It would be nice to have some comments on the films you've watched yourselves, wouldn't it? I'd like that very much! Thank you!

I saw Volver in June and I just loved it very much. It was the first movie of Almodóvar I've ever seen, but I want to see some other movies of him, but it's not very easy to get them here.

Pedro Almodóvar...pá...já vi alguns filmes e fiquei mesmo confuso....!!! não sei mesmo a razão da confusão.....mas boa!

RIC disse...

... Gostei particularmente do estilo: desprendido, nonchalant e simpático.
Creio que consigo compreender a razão da confusão, Paulo. Talvez eu tenha tido sorte com o 1.º filme. Se tivesse visto outros em primeiro lugar, talvez também ficasse confuso.
Obrigado! Tudo de bom! :-)

Hello Rian!
Thank you for your visit!
If you ever get the chance, please try and watch any other movie of his. Some are fabulous stories, marvellously told, fantastic pieces of daily life seen through his «very peculiar» eyes.
You're a friend already!
Thank you!

Hallo Ric,
danke für deinen netten Kommentar bei mir, ich habe mich sehr darüber gefreut.

Volver started in Germany in the first week of August, but I watched it in Switzerland in a small independet movie theater on the first weekend of June. I must say it was the best movie I've seen this year. It contained a bit of everything (fun, love, drama, laughter, sadness), and I just felt very good after watching it. I was trying to get more movies, but my regular movie rental store doesn't have them.

I promoted Volver in my last radio show by reviewing it. My co-host said he's a big Almodóvar fan, he's gonna lend some movies to me.

I'll tell you how I liked the other movies after watching them.

Ich wünsche dir eine gute Woche.
Liebe Grüße,

Hi Ric!?

I did see Tie me up Tie me down and High heels.

RIC disse...

Vielen Dank, Rian! Das ist sehr nett von Dir.
Jetzt wirst Du von einer ziemlich guten Gelegenheit profitieren und Dir ein paar Filme nacheinander ansehen können. Das finde ich ja wunderbar. Selbstverständlich möchte ich dann Deine Meinung Bescheid wissen. That goes without saying...
Ich wünsche Dir viel Spass beim Filmsehen. Die werden Dir gefallen, ganz sicher!
Eine gute Woche für Dich auch!
Mach's gut, Rian!

Hello Joel!
So it was a good idea after all to post about Almodóvar's work today.
Hope you liked them (but others are better, I think).

Joel disse...

What happened to your right side column?

Your pic and profile are all the way at the bottom.

RIC disse...

It's because of that stupid world map: it is wider than the central blog column... I hope it goes tomorrow to the archive and the rest will come back to normal...
Isn't it marvellous now?
Thanks a lot!

Hera disse...

O cara é bom demais com filmes! Adoro "Tudo sobre minha mãe". Fera mesmo! Bom, adoro também a musicalidade da língua espanhola. Beijos

RIC disse...

Olá, Hera! Tens toda a razão quanto à musicalidade do Espanhol. Dei-me ainda mais conta disso agora em «Volver»: os diálogos são fabulosos, e hei-de tentar vê-lo outra vez sem legendas. É um bom filme, sem dúvida!
