Making the connection
It has been a while since I managed to view that many movies in a couple of days.
Today I managed to see The Terminal. I was amazed that in this film Tom Hanks, playing the role of Viktor Navorski, is speaking in Bulgarian !!! Well, it’s true that it’s not the most brilliant Bulgarian I’ve ever heard from a non-Bulgarian speaking, but still it is a very strange and sweet feeling to watch a U.S., Hollywood-made movie, directed by a great director such as Steven Spielberg, where Bulgarian speech appears. As if I’m watching a Bulgarian movie. Well true, that’s not quite it, but still it’s something that touches your ears in a different way. Somewhat makes you feel as a Bulgarian that you a real part of „that world, over there“, to which we are all aiming and going for.
I also just saw Man on Fire. A way to describe this movie is a quote from it – „Revenge is a dish best served cold„. Very good movie. I do recommend it. By the way, watching it I’ve found quite a few similarities, speaking of themes, with Kill Bill and Gladiator. For some reason (I don’t know if this is actually true), but a song from the soundtrack really made me think of Gladiator. Also, coming back also to The Terminal – it made realize once more again how much family and friends are one’s best treasure and a cause worth fighting, sacrificing and dying for.
