About Time

About-Time-poster-303x450A friend of mine was sure that I would like this film so last night I decided to watch it.  And it was a big surprise!

About Time is about Tim, a young man who finds out when he turns 21 that all the men in his family can travel back in time; and when he meets the woman of his dreams, Mary, he does everything in his power to win about-time-image08her heart. And I had thought that this would be just about everything the film would have to offer. Here is where I was pleasantly surprised, as I was wrong. It describes this young man’s conscious decisions to show his love towards his woman, his family and his friends, teaching us to appreciate every single day of our “extraordinary-ordinary” lives as if it was our “full final day”. It is a sweet and moving film, hilarious at times, making me laugh out loud, but so moving as well, that I cried as a baby too.

Another big surprise for me was the music! Amazing versions of songs that I always loved having sunny Cornwall in the background or the busy streets of London.

It is a beautiful film. It was my mistake to underestimate it, but it was refreshing to be surprised like that as it surpassed my expectations! A great way to spend the evening.

“I just try to live every day as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary-ordinary life”

The Notebook

the notebookWell I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you what a marvellous film The Notebook is but I couldn’t resist! It is definitely the best film for a girl’s night in. Last night, I stambled on it on TV and two hours later I found that I hadn’t changed the channel. It was not my intention to watch it, again, I’ve already seen it 2 or 3 times but I couldn’t help it.

The film is about a wonderful love story between Allie and Noah. What amazes me about this love story is that it is like a lesson in love. Noah says: if you’re a bird I’m a bird. What I get from that is: after I met you I couldn’t be anything else but what you want me to be; I couldn’t go anywhere else but where you are; I agree to anything as long as you’re there with me. It is as simple as that.

For those of you who have seen it, well you know what  I am talking about. For those of you who haven’t, I envy you!The_Notebook_15
