Hiya there folks! how are you doing?
Hope you're doing great, for my part I've been having a good time with my family in these days. As I commented in this piece atrixfromice.deviantart.com/ar…
everything it's peaceful and nice here, it's like being on vacation!
I must admit that I'm a bit sad because this is almost the end of the week, and my dad will come to pick my younger brother and I back to my town, then I'll come back to the stress of waking up early and do lots of house chores and the work! And of course that I like more being in a peaceful place with my mom's food and lots of space to work out and go for a walk, than in my town where I'm pressured daily for a lot of reasons!
But this is my duty and I can't space of my responsibilities...so I'll have to return to do it anyways
So I'm trying to enjoy the last days of the week that I have left the best I can A MOVIE CALLED "HUGO"
Some days ago I watched a movie that in English it's called "Hugo" (like the pet duck that I used to have *chuckles) and it was based on a book called "the invention of Hugo Cabret". This movie I mention it cos it was awesome! It was about an orphan kid who lived in a train station of Paris, and he was intelligent and loved repairing things. He was smart and nice like my duck Hugo ^^
I wouldn't like to say much of this movie, cos if you haven't seen it yet I might spoil it for you, and I know how frustrating it's to get spoilers from an amazing film. I just would like to tell you that in general, in he movie the young kid helped an old filmmaker to recover all his dreams and passion to make films, and at the end the kid finds a home. So it's a really endearing and cool movie, settled in the elegant and fascinating atmosphere of 1930's Paris!
And it was so cool!!
I must day that the amazingly well done scenery and clothes of that age was one of the best things in the movie, you can see all the glory and wonder of 1930's Paris like if you were there!
So I think people who love French culture and specially the one on that time (also for the ones who love France and Paris and their story and all that stuff) will adore the movie, because this part in particular it's so amazing! Of course, I'm sure people who aren't very interested in these themes will be interested then!
It surprised me how all on it looked so Steampunk at the first *chuckles*
Another thing I really liked about this film, it's that great the filmmaker that the story it's about, it's George Meliès (A pioneer and adventurer in the film industry, one of the most interesting historical figures I've had the pleasure to know of, if you ask me! ) and they do it right!
The story of Melies I mean. They talk about him and his story in a very cool and endearing way, so people can get to know great things about him in an amazing, amusing and cool way! ^_^
You artist people probably know him, he did great contributions to what it is now the actual film-making industry. I was surprised when I watched the movie cos, I read about him long time ago ( when I decided that I wanted to be an filmmaker, and I started looking for the story of theater and films
) but I have never seen someone or something talking about him with such great love and passion!
This movie, will make you adore Melies
and not only because you will know the great things he did and how much he risked himself so people cool start the film-making industry later as you can see it now, but also cos the historical person it's really well represented in the movie, in a very endearing and cool way
Also you'll adore the characters too along with the filmmaker, specially the kids, cos they are also very endearing characters! And all the characters were really great in my opinion. One of the things that surprised me the most in this film, was that there was no "villians" or "bad guys" just a lot of normal people who at the end discover that the other one isn't bad either, and conciliate to each other. For example, there was a police officer there who always was chasing the kid in the station, because he thought that Hugo was a bad kid, but at the end he realized that he just was trying to do something for his father, and was alone and needed a place to live. So it was so cool so refreshing to see a movie that was out of the clasic (and usually boring
) clichè "good-guys vs bad guys", and see just a movie about some normal people living their lifes he best they could with what they knew
Just people living in a realistic environment, trying to seek for their dreams, or trying to find the purpose on their life.
Well, hehe...I'm trying so hard to not give you spoilers!
So, you go and watch the movie, I'm sure there's something you all would love!
This was a movie with a the heartwarming and so inspiring message of looking for your dreams, even if in the first times you don't get much success, so this movie is one of my favorites and now has a very special place in my heart :')
So this is only one of the things I think it's interesting to talk of that I did this week. Other than that, I've been there working a bit, and well, we went to the supermarket like 4 days ago, and we spent a good time there too. I like to go to buy stuff to the super with my family, cos it's fun, my brothers are very funny and they always joke with any stuff they find there
This time for example, we went to the super and my brother showed me a photo she took last year when I couldn't come, that was taken last year in these months also, where there was a sing near to the fruits that said "La hola de calor" ("Hot wave") and had what it supposed to be sun with glasses, but one of my brothers said that it looked like a beach ball with a bra
And it was so funny cos he showed me the photo he took with his cellphone, and it looked like that!
Also in these days me and my sister and brother went to walk to exersice. The weather has been very hot today but not as hot as in my town, but even so I couldn't sleep very well due the heat
Today the weather has been very fresh thought, with a bit of rain that took the heat away ^^
