Many wonderful things happened this week and this time I have a bunch of "culture shocks" for you all.
First of all, this week I got a new great Twitter follower : none other than Andre Rieu!!! Yes, you read it right. Andre Rieu is now following me on Twitter!
I admit I feel honored!
My Hamlet review is up in the previous post, as you may all have seen. The link is also posted on TOI's Face Book Page.
I agree, it is a little lengthy, but I really wanted it all to be there. I still have to learn how to express myself shorter, but for now, like Joyce DiDonato puts it, pour yourselves a glass of wine! (And another one to celebrate, when you are finally finished! - R.M)
Finally the last, but certainly not the least, is the movie that I watched last night, called
(500) Days of Summer.
Clever, subtle and very true.
On some level, it is about so many of us. Don't want to ruin the surprise for you, in case you are still planning to watch it, but I feel like I have to throw in a little teaser.
The concept of our expectations vs. reality is presented in a very interesting and pretty effective way.
Zooey Deschanel, starring in the main role, is great in every movie. The girl can play anything : from a geeky loser to a sexy femme fatale - no problem!
Who is she in this one? Watch to find out.
The film got great reviews and 87% on Rotten Tomatoes ( I know that you know that I don't care about numbers! Ha-ha-ha!)
Anyway, it's been a great week and hopefully, will be a great weekend. Have a nice one, my friends, and try to stay cool and away from all this heat.
