El cielo, la tierra, y la lluvia (2008)

Directed by: José Luis Torres Leiva
Cast: Julieta Figueroa, Pablo Krogh

This was one of the three movies I’ve seen yesterday. I got to late home to write anything about what I’ve seen. I went straight to bed.

I’m really sorry to say this but this movie really tested my patience. I was sooo bored, I was screaming on the inside. The idea was not that bad – a movie about sadness and loneliness – but I hated the way it was done.

The South (1983)

Directed by: Víctor Erice
Cast: Omero Antonutti, Sonsoles Aranguren, Icíar Bollaín, Rafaela Aparicio

I’ve just seen The South and all I can say is that it was one of the movies that bored me the most. I could hardly wait for it to be over 😐

I actually thought of leaving the theatre, but I kept hoping that something it’s gonna happen towards the end and my opinion will change a little.

It didn’t. I wasted 1h and 35 mins of my life. Hope the next ones I’m gonna see will be better. (Film festival these days in my city)

No Reservations (2007)

Directed by: Scott Hicks (Shine, Hearts in Atlantis)
Cast: Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, Abigail Breslin

I must say that both the director and the cast made me watch this movie. I really really loved HicksShine and most of all, Hearts in Atlanis (one of my all time faves). Aaron Eckhard had a great performance in Thank You For Smoking and so did Abigail in Little Miss Sunshine. I’ve never been a Catherine Zeta-Jones fan, but I’ve seen her in movies I’ve liked, also (High Fidelity for example).

But this movie was soooo predictable. I mean, I was able to anticipate almost every scene 10 minutes before it happened. I’m pretty sure Hicks can do better.
I should have just save this one for a lazy Sunday afternoon when I don’t even feel like following a plot.
It wasn’t bad, but way to predictable.
