bella martha

Bella Martha, in German with English sub-titles, is a movie about letting go of the expectations for the perfect life, only to find that the life already in front of you is perfect even when it's so completely different than what you had so carefully planned.  Seems to be a theme I can totally appreciate in my life over the past few years.

Here's a glimpse of one of the funnier scenes from the movie.

I love the acting, the chemistry and the food which is its own character in this movie.  I do have to say that I'm in love with Mario who threatens Martha's well ordered world.  Even in German with English subtitles the tension between these two is is n-i-i-i-ce, especially in this scene.

A great movie for a quiet evening in for two.
Be sure to order yummy take-out from a favorite restaurant followed by a chocolate dessert.
(maybe keep a blindfold handy for later)
 Hollywood, of course, had to do their own version No Reservations, which I also like.  Catherine Zeta-Jones is always fun to watch and Abigail Breslin is one of the best young actors in the business and she definitely shows her talent in this movie.

This looks like a great movie with a good message. I can't believe how picky that woman was in that clip--great acting by both of them!
