We watched two films recently:
Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris. I wanted to like it, the photography was excellent, really made Paris look like you want Paris to look like. The story was sort of OK but I couldn't believe the characters (except maybe Salvador Dali). The leading actor was an Allen clone (but younger) which was a bit spooky. It could have been . . . . . but it wasn't.
The Way was a nice surprise, also with excellent photography. It's the story of a father walking the Camino to Santiago de Compostela in memory of his son and the three friends he picks up on the way - that's it! But very believable. Nice.
