    What do you see in life?
    Well… I only see good things. I only see the good in people, too.

    In HAHAHA, Hong Sang Soo follows the stories of two male friends in a pub having a drink, both telling anecdotes about their recent trip to the coast. In doing so, they unconsciously come into contact with the same people and visit the same places. But they don't realise this during their conversation. They have their eyes closed due to…

    “La grande affaire de la vie, c'est le sexe, vous voyez.”
    “Si c'est vrai, c'est encore plus dèsespérant que je le pensais.”

    Portrait d'une jeune fille de la fin des années 60 à Bruxelles is literally about the title. Akerman follows a girl who wanders through Brussels. Even if the picture quality was not optimal, the background of Brussels provided a pleasant atmosphere for the conversations Michèle has with her best friend and a boy she meets in the cinema.…

    "Friendship's serious. Maybe more than love.

    The penultimate day of summer and thus it was urgent time to watch the third film of Rohmer's four seasons: Summer.

    Rohmer's two biggest strengths come to the fore again in this film, on the one hand, his incredible insight into man and his psychology, and on the other his talent for creating a perfect atmosphere through images.

    With the summery sea breeze, conversations between young people on the French coast flow smoothly into…

    I don't have time for a (long) review but I just wanted to make it clear for people who are interested in watching this film that Lara and I were expecting to watch a heart-warming Iranian cheerful film with birds singing and children playing in the sun in the countryside. Instead, we were presented with a story with children crying, birds screaming and thunderstorms with rain pouring down from the sky. So the story is not all sunshine and rainbows…

    I love food, cooking and worldly cuisine just like my best friend. But there is one difference. I can taste, eat, smell. He has not been able to do this for some years now. But this didn't stop him from looking for ways to continue with his passion for food. He knows much more than I do about cooking (and even more about Japanese cuisine), he reads a lot about it, has a stack of cookery books and has seen…

    In a few days, I will graduate. One of the most important things I have learned and my professors have kept repeating from the first to the last year is how important a good (story) structure is. A funnel structure. This film is a good example of that. For me, perhaps the main reason why this film works so well. Toyoda completely dragged me into his story with his build up.

    Top funnel: starting with a very specific situation that…
