I was writing a post that turned into something absolutely different and I need some time to think about it and I will (maybe) change it a bit, maybe I will decide not to post at all. We will see.
This week was very fatiguing as I was very busy in my two jobs. I believe all is going to be more stabilized soon as I am getting used to the quick tempo of my days.
My sister´s wedding is next Saturday. The preparations are almost finished, the most important things are fine-tuning. I should buy a new purse. And shoes. I should buy it quickly...
Paul Newman died yesterday. It is so sad news. I remember when I noticed him for the first time. Of course, it was thanks to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid movie. I like that film a lot. But later on I saw The Long, Hot Summer and this one had become one of my most favourite movies ever.
The Coraline movie, based on the book by Neil Gaiman, seems to be another film I will have to see. At first, I was worry about the whole animation thing a bit. But then I found out that the director of this movie is Henry Selick, who also directed Tim Burton´s Night Before Christmas, and I calmed down and started to look forward to it.
And then I saw some short videos about making this movie on Neil Gaiman´s official site here, and now I am definitely sure I will like the movie a lot.
And be sure you will read the book before going to the cinema to see the film! I love this spooky poetic book full of imagination, where heroic Coraline explores Other World and bravely tries to save her parents.
I was reading this book to my small students last school year around the Halloween time and they were bewitched and gripped by the story. The interesting thing was that they weren´t afraid while I still have had goose bumps reading it:-)
By the way, I love the poster above. It is so clever. I love the hand shaped tree and the moon with shadows look like buttonholes... Well, those who´s read the book already, they know...
