The Other Woman

May 5, 2014

Some movies are so far-fetched from life that one cannot help enjoying very improbable and hilariously funny situations. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton in The Other Woman (2014) make you laugh out loud almost at every moment. A sweet revenge of 3 women all cheated by the same man. And a most happy end, of course.


Divisadero

May 1, 2014

Michael Ondaatje’s Divisadero is a novel about a family gathered by death and separated by love. Numerous themes, intricately related characters, places and fates. The narrative jumping forward and backward in time. 

“I come from Divisadero Street,” Anna (echoing the name of Hana from the “The English Patient”) tells us and then she buries herself in archives, “where art meets life in secret.” 

Divisadero, meaning ‘division’ … but also ‘salvation’.  or deriving from the word divisar meaning ‘to gaze at something from a distance.’ That the reader is left to guess.

During the Open Doors Day at the French Institute in Sofia, Bulgaria (23–27 April 2014) one had a number of cultural events to choose among – from Sylvie Vartan to Yves Saint-Laurent, ‘soirées françaises et danses’ and much more… And it still goes on …

All great events happen because there are great people whose dedication to making them happen is remarkable. A few shots below convey the lively atmosphere all enjoyed tonight.
A la fête comme à la fête!
