I HEART FOREIGN FILMS

Do you? I have to admit they can be infuriating because often they end open-ended, unlike Hollywood movies. They can be slow and monotonous almost. I get it, I get it. Sometimes they can be a bore. But sometimes they can be surprisingly good. You can even hone your foreign language skills, and get your wanderlust on because they cinematography makes you want to go to whatever country you’re watching.

Here are some of the ones I have really liked (not in any order):

POLISSE

SCENT OF THE GREEN PAPAYA

AMELIE

I AM LOVE

THE GREAT BEAUTY

LADY VENGEANCE

OLDBOY

A ROYAL AFFAIR

HAUTE CUISINE

GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

RUST AND BONE

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON

INFERNAL AFFAIRS

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE

BATTLE ROYALE

IMPOSSIBLES

A BIT OF TV

I don’t watch too much TV. Even when the TV is on, but I’m not necessarily watching it. I watch TV shows or the news, but I don’t watch reality TV. Oh, unless you count the food ones. I don’t necessarily know when my favourite TV shows on are, I usually have to watch it online on the networks, or download. Damn, I wish we had Hulu in Canada!

MY PICKS 

It’s a mixed bag, seriously. Here’s what I watch…when I remember (in alphabetical order):

Burn Notice | Downtown Abbey (only Season 1) | Game of Thrones | Glee | Happy Endings | How I Met Your Mother | Law & Order: SVU | New Girl | Scandal | Shameless | Sherlock (BBC)

COMPLETELY TURN YOUR WORLD AROUND

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around.   You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more.  

You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved, and the many disappointments life has thrown at you…

BUILD YOU UP

When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement.  They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting, or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself.

Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful…

There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around.  You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are…  

INVALUABLE TREASURES

The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever.  

Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again.  

Colours seem brighter and more brilliant.  

Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all.  

A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face…

IN THEIR PRESENCE

In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby.

Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you.  

You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do.  

Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon…

EXPERIENCE IT

You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day, and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible.  

You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you.  

You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soulmate who will remain loyal to the end.  

Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile.  Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.
