16 Oct 2009 – Happy Bday Patricia LAM

Thank you to Lucy for her 15 Oct write-up in http://xingrencha.bizTrekking her way back home…

Coco Before Chanel*** French drama revolves around one of the fashion history’s most well known icons, Gabrielle Coco Chanel. Chronicles Chanel’s early years from her humble beginnings as a Parisian orphan before she came to be known as one of the world’s most famous fashion designers. Reminded me of another French movie about Édith Piaf, La vie en Rose, .

Paper Heart** US comedy/documentary on a journey to document what exactly love is. Interviewing various people, the determined young girl attempts to find definition and perhaps even experience the mysterious emotion. But her pessimistic denial may hinder her chances at finding real happiness. More for the younger generation!

Time Traveler’s Wife** a dashing librarian who travels involuntarily through time. Henry and Clare’s passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap. Too far-fetched for my imagination!

Haeundae** the deadly tsunami, quite realistic effects in this Korean flick. Reminded me of some of the effects from Titanic!

Dear Zachery**** only for SIN Film Society members. See titled posting dated 11 Oct.

Imagine That*** have always enjoyed Eddie Murphy’s acting and here again he did not fail to make me laugh. Entertaining, a fairy tale ending with the message that all you need is love and love conquers all.

Julie & Julia*** two separate memoirs about two different women in two different era with food & cooking as their common passion and interest. Since Julie is living in today’s technology, she blogged about her challenge to cook all the receipts in Julia Child’s first book within one year. Must remind myself to do a posting as to why I blog!
