Songcatcher

The story may be a bit too melodramatic, but great performances abound in Songcatcher. The real reason to see the movie, however, is the hypnotic music.

Mary, Queen of Scots (1971)

Mary, Queen of Scots: "Mary Stuart, who was named Queen of Scotland when she was only six days old, is the last Roman Catholic ruler of Scotland..."

Daughter From Danang, moving and heartbreaking documentary about a young woman who reunites with her Vietnamese mother.

The Best of Youth (2003)

La meglio gioventu: een prachtige Italiaanse film / mini-serie over het leven van twee broers.

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (1989)

Poetry - from South Korea. This movie requires patience but if you stick with it you will be rewarded. In this movie you see how men seek to dominate their environment and the women in that environment. Yet the beautiful surprise is the moral courage and inner strength demonstrated by a woman most would view as insignificant and a little silly. This movie and its lessons stay with you.
