    It's in black and white but the first minute watching makes you forget that .

    Great seeing it win the BAFTA for best film.

    Cold War directed by Pawel Pawlikowski gives an evocative portrayal of post-war World War Two Poland and inter-connections of music, politics, emigration, and personal relationships. It is insightful and moving, but not despairing. Three 2019 Oscar nominations: Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography, Best Director. Several genres of music, all well done, whose variety is a part of the story that musically knowledgeable audiences will appreciate especially.

    Brother Sun, Sister Moon (1972)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069824/
    the movie was quite good, 8/10
    I liked the depiction of the medieval life, the costumes and that it was quite faithful to actual historical facts known about the life of St. Francis of Assisi and the ending with the pope in Rome was nice. On the other hand I think that the actor playing St. Francis was a little overacting and the character that he portrayed seemed like some naive fool walking with his head in the clouds.
    and it has a good soundtrack by Riz Ortolani

    At the cinema, The Favourite. Utterly brilliant, some very funny moments, but ultimately a very sad movie. Olivia Colman deserves every award and bit of praise that comes her way.

    At home, Calvary. A tough watch, bleak as they come, with a superb central performance (as ever) from Brendan Gleason.

    It's difficult to imagine two more contrasting movies, frankly!

    The book is 5 times better, that endless dialogues

    Flamme, do you like the theme song to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes? I see Gordon Goodwin was part of the music team, so that may explain the high quality and catchiness of the tune.

    I'd say that Disney from every era has movies of varying quality. Hunchback is one of the high points of their animated catalogue, although I don't wish to call it old before it turns 25.
