How did this young boy, born in 1622 to an upholsterer and a loving mother that he was to loose too soon, become the prodigious actor, and universally acclaimed author that was so well-known, and yet so little was known about him? From his childhood to his death, we follow Molière and his travelling companions, in their joy, misery and glory throughout a savage yet refined XVIIth century France, sharing their first theatrical adventures, their successes and failures, their valiant struggles and moments of cowardice. This familiar and spectacular saga where the devout clash with the libertine, and famished peasants with wigged courtesans, is about the life of an honest man who exhausts himself in an Bluestacks Kodi Lucky Patcher unceasing struggle to practice his art in a century filled with repression and violent hypocrisy.
    i think 120 actors, 600 participants, 1300 costumes, 220 sets is not easy number

    BBC The Shakespeare Collection - All of Shakespeare's play's on 38 dvds

    Bought from a South Korean seller on EBAY for about 80 bucks. Can't beat the price, and they work perfectly (just turn off the Korean subtitles if you don't want them).

    I bought the movie "Yesterday"...what a great movie...especially the scene when he is playing let it be in his piano with people not paying attention...it's like when a preofessionnal musician is playing in the street under cover and people don't even stop to listen and as soon as they recognize the musician, they all suddently get excited and listen...

    Chernobyl (TV Mini-Series (2019))
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7366338/
    10/10



    this is the best thing that I have watched in some time, certainly the best of 2019 for me. It is historically precise, and depicts the life in USSR very realistically without the usual western stereotypes about Russia. It is also much more scary than any horror I have watched in a very long time.

    Criterion announced their July releases this morning. I am definitely getting my hands on this:

    Preston Sturges, Ernst Lubitsch, Howard Hawks and Frank Capra ruled the big screen for years with their comedies. I'm so glad Criterion has been able to restore so many of these screwball, fast talking, comedies. Almost all of the restored black and white films are gorgeous. And the restored sound presented as 2 channel mono PCM allows you to use your AVR to apply sound processing to take advantage of a 5.1 (or larger) speaker set up. Win/win in my book.

    I've read a lot on these directors (except Capra) and their films. Lubitsch was a fave; remember "Ninotchka"!! Class from beginning to end: "gentlemen - you must have been smoking a lot" (after the cigarette waitresses leave the room of the 3 envoys - all implied and suggested visually, of course). Wilder was my absolute favourite, though he also made serious films too. But "Some Like it Hot" is pure screwball. "Osgood and I are going to be married" (castanets punctuating every sentence.) Today nobody can make a comedy without profanity and sexual crudity. The past masters stole all the jokes!!
