I am a huge fan of Spanish cinema and as a lover of all things Spanish, it is always a must to see the latest export in cinema. Thankfully, living in Edinburgh this is quite easy and last night I went to the Filmhouse, an arty, independent cinema to see this masterpiece. I knew to expect a film brimming with artistic style, European cinema always does, nevertheless, this film blew me away. Javier Bardem's performance was seamless, completely capturing the attention of the audience ( everyone was completely silent and motionless ) and delivering a powerful story of life. The story is powerful, compelling, humorous, tragic and captures all the emotions of being alive. I particularly enjoyed the magical realism that Iñárritu adopted in the film, something that dominates Spanish literature, here it defined the magical elements that blur between the interior and exterior, presenting the spiritual and beautiful dimension in life. Although an intense 2 hours, this is a must see.


New year, New you.

I'm a bit late on that front but 2011 is going to be a new me, a new everything. My first post is about the lovely Sunday girl who, after randomly finding on Spotify, I have fallen in love. This girl is gorgeous and her voice even more so. I am particularly loving her track Self control, and the French Soler remix - a perfect party tune. Jade ( Sunday girl) is everywhere right now and is proving to be a new style muse with a polished look with masculine influences; buttoned shirt, shorts, blazers. Absolutely loving the cream/light yellow dress in the top right corner...can summer hurry up please!
