The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Simply great. It's the accurate adaptation of the book. It has a good atmosphere, and even having into account that it shows some things that everybody already saw before in some other movies about the holocaust, the story is fantastic. The best part is the confrontation of the innocence faced the barbarism and the barbarism faced the innocence... and the hard and emotional blow of the reason faced the fanaticism. I really liked it. A very recommendable film.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Cidade de Deus (City of God)

Simply BRILLIANT. In my opinion, the best Brazilian movie for years... A good story and very well made in 2002. It's amazing how it shows the way of life, the value of the life... all... It is fantastic.

My score: 10 (out of 10)

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

I love Woody Allen, but I was disappointed with Cassandra's Dream, so I'm positively surprised with this new movie. A fun comedy. The conversations are fresh and some of the "improvisations" of Bardem and Penelope (and specially the Spanish swearwords) are quite realistic, even in the complicated relationship of the participants! This is a cool movie.

My score: 8 (out of 10)
