Nordwand (Germany, 2008)

'Nordwand' may not be a very well known film outside of Europe and it even isn't outside of Germany but I should say it doesn't deserve that. The film deals about the climbing of the Eiger (Switzerland) in 1936 where an olympic medal could be won.

Sometimes the film follows a bit too much the paved roads in telling a story but it still is an enormous thrill to watch it. Beautiful scenery, great acting and a really exciting story will make you feel like you really watched an interesting film... and that is true!

I Saw the Devil while meeting people

Today Korean's revenge movie 'I Saw the Devil' became for sale in the dvd-shops in the Netherlands. I rushed to the shop and before I knew it I was in a deep conversation with another customer about Korean revenge movies and the actor Choi Min Sik. Isn't that one the beauties in life? You can find people with the same preferences everywhere and you don't have search for them.

Now the only thing I still have to do is watch the movie, heard great things about it!! Someone seen it already?

Final Fantasy X - suteki da ne

When I was thinking about restarting my blog again I was wondering what I would post for my first new article. Well it will no treally be an article but a video and a song. The first thing that came to mind was: Final Fantasy 10.....I played it probably 10 years ago and now and than I still think of its beauty. The animation is gorgeous, the story compelling but most of all the song 'Suteki da ne'. I remember its beauty forever, together with the game it is a memory which will last forever and so it is one of the little brilliant things in life which you will encounter.

Re-start of this blog!

Hi All!

It has been a while but I decided to re-start this blog again so from today onwards I will post amazing pictures, stills from movies or othe rthings that may seem small but in fact shows the beauty in life.
At the moment I am reading 'the Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger which is an intersting tale about true love and always keep believing in it. In my blog I want to chase true beauty, which can also be in sadness, and never leave the trail of finding the beautiful things in life, movies, culture and nature. I hope I will see you soon on my blog again!

Alone in a white world
