Movies of February

We watched a handful of movies this month:

  • Atonement which is based on a book by Ian McEwan about the devastating impact of a single lie.
  • Iranian director’s Masjid Masjidi’s The Willow Tree is set in Tehran, and it is an exquisitely filmed movie about a university professor who gradually loses his eyesight and who has to adjust to a life of blindness.
  • Reign over me stars Adam Sandler in a surprisingly decent movie that involves no slapstick, although there are some seriously funny lines.
  • I really enjoyed the New Zealand movie River Queen about a young woman who travels up a river and lives with a tribe of Maori for some time. The music – at times soaring and almost ethereal, and at other times, ominous and thunderously war-like – was fantastic.
  • Our last movie of February was No Reservations with tempestuously gorgeous Catherine Zeta-Jones and dimple-chinned Aaron Eckhart. It is all about the dramas happening behind the scenes in restaurant kitchens and the mouthwateringly delectable and lovingly prepared food that emerges from this chaos.

I'd love to hear your views
