SLEEPY HOLLOW and wrong German

2016-03-07 // 0 Comments

As much as I love watching SLEEPY HOLLOW I get irked by the lack of proper German. Why is it so hard to get vocal coaches or voiceovers to nail the German text lines? So far I’ve encountered one (1!) actor who speaks proper German. Why?!? Bad guys with an accent as thick as a [...]

‘Gods cannot be painted in human form’ (and certainly not in the nude) – such is the accusation against artist Raja Ravi Varma in a British court in India of 1896. Yes, they can! A breathtakingly colourful film, RANG RASIYA (Hindi for COLOURS OF PASSION) relates how painter Raja Ravi Varma (ravishing male beauty Randeep Hooda ) takes the liberty to paint [...]

2015-06-09 // 0 Comments

Als Kind sass ich gebannt vor dem Fernseher, als sich Lex Barker (den kannte ich ja schon als Old Shatterhand) auf Piratenschiffen in der Karibik mit den Bösen schlug.

Machismo might be brought about by mothers. In PELO MALO (BAD HAIR) a boy (brilliant young actor Samuel Lange Zambrano) just can’t get anything right for his mother Marta (Samantha Castillo, a new Jennifer Lopez): If he wants to straighten his curly hair and look like a singer she’s panicking that he might be gay.

THE TUDORS – a jewel amongst series

2015-05-29 // 0 Comments
