My fav films 2014 – made me cry

2014-12-17 // 0 Comments

CAMP X-RAY about the torture to both – prisoners and guards – in Guantanamo had me in tears. But the floodgates really opened at TRUE BLOOD ‘s finale. What a ride, though! Wait, there’s more: Dark backstories turned MY OLD LADY into tragedy, same with SKELETON TWINS , WISH I WAS HERE and Icelandic epos VONARSTRÆTI – LIFE [...]

TRUE BLOOD musical in the making

2014-09-01 // 2 Comments

Ever noticed how Southern Vampire Bill Compton (played by musical star, actor and director Stephen Moyer) had his own dark Cello Leitmotiv, a musical theme that followed him whenever he appeared on screen? Eric Northman (the 1000 year old Viking Vampire played by Alexander Skarsgard) on the other hand came with a Swedish tune that [...]

Calvin Clein Fashion Statement film

More than a year ago Fabien Baron made a film starring Alexander Skarsgård . . . SimOne comes to mind. Oh, the amounts of money big brands spend on ads, branding or marketing (I know the biz, been there myself). Impress the press . . . well, the fashion crowd is hard to please – [...]

Few TV-Series have ever fascinated me as much as TRUE BLOOD. It is one of those modern American TV-shows which can be perceived as a new kind of intellectual challenge, as “Frankfurter Allgemeine” wrote in 2012 in Amerikanisches Fernsehen_ Serien als Stresstest – Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung – FAZ : They present the viewer with a plethora of characters and [...]

50 SHADES OF GREY – the movie

2014-08-14 // 0 Comments

At last it really does hit the big screen: FEMTIO NUANSER AV HONOM (Swedish for FIFTY SHADES OF GREY… alas, not with Alexander Skarsgård and not by Lars von Trier, as we’d have suggested 😉 – So let’s have a look, who’s up to the task now: Director Sam(antha) Taylor-Johnson promises great cinematography (as in how [...]

MIASTO 44 with Mads Hjulmand

2014-08-13 // 0 Comments

MIASTO 44 is polish for “City 44” and refers to 1944 and the Warsaw Uprising. I’ll watch this film just because a certain Mads Hjulmand (@MadsHjulmand refers to himself on twitter as “one mean acting machine”) plays a certain Hermann … sometimes (scandinavian) actors do have that effect on me. If it hadn’t been for Alexander Skarsgård I’d never [...]
