    Another weekend, another great old Spanish movie: El Sur ( The South ) by Victor Erice.

    And another movie I can relate emotionally to. Extremely beautiful but heartbreakingly to watch.
    Because I have my own `South`, a place I dream of but that I can`t visit.
    And I also can relate to the father's tragedy, namely living a private life of impossible dreams and hiding a deep unhappiness.

    Although I know that almost nobody reads this thread or is interested in such type of cinema I still post the link to this movie: https://ccesv.org/evento/clasicos-contigo-el-sur/

    Watch it for free until tomorrow at 21.00 ( GMT +2 )
    Sometimes when I say "I'm okay" I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you're not".

    La vaquilla ( the Heifer ) by Luis García Berlanga. A spanish comedy with the action placed during the Spanish Civil War
    A film that is perfect for Donks. One of the characters even has his name.

    Thanks gadjilupe

    my missus was pissing herself a moment ago... she didn’t know what I was watching and kept hearing my name being called

    another Spanish classic from 1985, not to be confused with “yo, el vaquilla” btw.
    I was still in Madrid back then, an amazing place in the 80’s, when I was young and before the clan of the marquesa took over. Quite a few of the images in the film remind me in part of the esperpento you can still see today...

    Unfortunately it was the last movie of the series Clasicos contigo.
    Last weekend I watched La Buena Estrella by Ricardo Franco.

    Anyway I'm happy that I could watch so many classics.
    Based on what I saw in these movies ( and not only in these classics) I must confess that I'm amazed ( in a positive way ) by the Spanish family relationships. Such things could never happen in absurdistani society.

    Someone suggested that I go see Tenet. Has anyone here seen it? Is it worth the time and ticket?

    Tonight I watched a wonderful movie from 1998: The Legend of 1900 ( La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano ) by Giuseppe Tornatore. As wonderful as his previous movie, Cinema Paradiso. I'm afraid that words can't express the emotion I felt watching it. And Tim Roth is perfect playing a fantastic pianist on the board of a boat where he was abandoned as a newborn baby and who never in his life set foot on land.
