Foreign Drama -Late Autumn

Late Autumn 2010 115 minutes Starring: Tang Wei (Chinese actress) Hyun Bin (Korean actor) This was not a normal role for our beloved Hyun Bin.  He portrays a bad boy gigolo (Yah, I know -so out of his normal acting). This film became the highest earning Korean drama in China.  It premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, then the Busan International Film Festival.  After that, it went on to show at 61st Berlin International Film Festival and Fribourg International Film Festival.  What an impressive list! There is also a list of awards this film earned, also earning Tang Wei several Best Actress awards. Now, what did I think of it?  Hard to explain, because I’m not sure.  It is a very slow film, dark screens and dreary settings. Tang Wei portrays a woman badly beaten by her husband after she spends time with a former boyfriend.  The result -manslaughter. When her mother dies, the jail releases her (temporarily) to go to the funeral.  She takes a bus, where she meets gigolo, Hyun Bin.  At …

Foreign Drama -Scent Of A Woman

Scent of a Woman 16 episodes 2011 If you love a drama that will pull your heartstrings -this is the one.  Dong Wook is perfect for this role.  Watch him as he moves from the cheated son to a man who will love completely, against the odds of his love living. Kim Sun A is weak as she carries on through life, without living.  Watch how cancer makes her strong, and teaches her to live -fully. So many people live as this couple did before they met -and cancer became a part of their lives.  Living without fully living. Death, the threat of death, opens up life in ways we can never explain to those that have not faced deaths grip. Take a glance into this world -with acting like this, you will see what truly, completely loving another will bring to both your life -and ultimately, your death. Uhm Ki Joon – wow!  Great acting throughout the drama.  Your heart will feel his pain, and his love for a girl never to be his …

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

#SoCS – Reality SoCS -Real/Reality Life has been moving so fast, I haven’t found time to remember it’s Saturday. I’m not convinced anything on earth is real.  Sometimes I think we will wake up and realize we’ve only been dreaming.    I once believed in my thoughts -what appeared within, will appear before me.  I was so convinced -it often distorted my views.  Yet, for me, it was very real.  Crazy, huh? Isn’t that life?  We believe what we wish to believe and everyone else is the stupid one.  Politics -If this is your passion, you will be convinced your choice is the correct one. Children -If you believe girls are a burden; you will believe all girls are a burden. Religion -If you believe two, our more religions are a perfect fit; you will become a bi-religion (just made that up, hehe).  Apparently, bi-religion has already been taken, shucks! Family -If you believe your children will be better off without living with their other parent full time; you will get a divorce when the mood …

#SoCS March 26/16 – Real or Imagined?

Originally posted on Promptly Written:
for Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt: Real I have a confession to make – sometimes I don’t know what is real and what is imagined. I could blame it on an over-active imagination. I definitely have one of those. Or, I could blame it on mental illness, which I also have. And yet, I wonder if it is either of those things. Perhaps I am just meant to live in a world of my own creation. Now that’s not to say that I don’t recognize reality when it smacks me in the face. I’ve survived real situations throughout my life, some that have left deep scars upon my soul. I know what’s going on in the real world as I actively read and watch the news. And I am not schizophrenic, or at least not visually – I do hear voices. What I mean by my confession is that when I get in that space, that creative place, I am there, in that created world. I am transformed through…
