Les Poupées Russes

…Will this be the last?


Five years after their summer together in Barcelona, Xavier, William, Wendy, Martine and Isabelle reunite. Xavier is now thirty. No longer a student, he is not yet a well-balanced, fullfiiled adult either. His career is unsatisfying: far from being the renowned novelist he aimed to be he must be content with little jobs such as reporter or ghost writer. His greatest “achievement” in “literature” is his collaboration to the script of a corny TV soap! His sentimental life is not much better, rhythmed by one night stands and unfinished romances. It looks as if when he seduces a woman beautiful outside and inside such as Kassia or Wendy he can’t keep them. Will he ever bring his life into focus?

Movie trailer

Movie website

At last! Since I discover that the great L’Auberge Espagnole (You’ve information about this movie on the blog) has a sequele I really want to watch it but I don’t find it… until today! The movie it’s great, it’s cool to have the chance of see what happens with the life fiction characthers and how they live now. Although I prefer L’Auberge (this movie is sometimes too complicated instead very well narrated) this movie have brilliant moments and knows how to attract the attention during all the film even though the story it’s not momentous at all. For example, the expected image of the principal charachters of L’Auberge together again takes place at the beginning of the story but it’s not until the middle-end that we know why, when and how. Like this, there’re a lot of examples we can found, as the title say, watching the movie you open the russian dolls but it’s not till the last, the smallest, that you know how all the story ends. Finally, just recommends too the sountracks of boths (L’Auberge Espagnole and Les Poupées russes) and tell you that in YouTube I discover this movie in parts. It’s not the best way to watch this film, but if you want, you can.

skins, It’s a lifestyle choice

Skins is a comedic teen drama from Company Pictures. It’s located in the brithish town of Bristol, where the young characters living the last years of high school alternating with partys, drugs and sex. The characters are so stereotyped: a popular, but manipulative boy (Tony), a Muslim boy (Anwar), an openly gay boy (Maxxie), an overbearing and talented clarinet player (Jal), a party animal with family problems (Chris), a pushover who is in love with his best friend’s girlfriend (Sid), a girl who is worried her boyfriend is only using her (Michelle) and a mentally unstable girl with an eating disorder (Cassie).

The greates thing of the serie is the original way to explain the history, the dialogues and al the visual part. The worst thing, for me, is that maybe they abusing unnecessarily of topics as drugs or sex in my point of view, looking for the sensationalism more than to explain the real way of life of teens (may it be, but perhaps not so widespread).

The serie realese two seasons with the same cast. The last months, the production organize parties all arround England where they looking for the cast of the third season that now it’s on process. In this new season, the old cast will appear maybe in some episodes but Effy (Michelle’s sister) is the only character of the last seasons that will appear fixed int the new one.

You can watch skins in Buzz, Antena.Neox and ojo Videoclub, but I recommend you to take a look to the spanish blog of Skins, with a lot of information, photos and download links not only of the episodes, also of the soundtrack. Enjoy!

Finally, this is the official website where you can find a lot of information too!

Songs about Facebook

This song is to support the social network Facebook…

But exist another one against it…

¿Wich one do you prefer?

My opinion: I like Facebook, indeed, I’ve to admit that I connect daily to look what my friends did, but it’s true all what they say in both songs and they are so fun, the rhythim, it’s so much better in the facebook hater’s song. What about Facebook? everyone  can use it how they want, it’s up to you!

It’s always sunny in Philadelphia

It’s always sunny in Philadelphia (translated as Colgados en Philadelphia) is an American television sitcom created by Rob McElhenney and developed by McElhenney and Glenn Howerton. Starring the famous Danny DeVito and young unknown actors, the sitcom talks about all the controversial topics that you can imagine, politically incorrect, so fun and absolutely recommended.

In Spain you can watch it in Paramount Comedy every day at 23:30 h. and in weekend in a different hour (I don’t remember it right now) but really doesn’t matter because is replenish several times during the weekend.
