6 days, 6 films

From the 15th to the 25th of September is taking place in Cambridge the 31st Cambridge Film Festival.

As soon as we saw the advertisement for the Festival, Mariana and I decided that this year we wouldn't miss it as we did last year. So we grabbed hold of the festival programme and we chose a few films to watch. I don't know much about films and didn't knew much about what was going to be on screen, but based on some hints from friends and in some curiosity we came up with the following list:
To be honest not all of the films are passing in the Festival, but it looked like a great opportunity to have a cinematographic week. ;)

Yesterday was the first day of this small marathon and it started with Mysteries of Lisbon. I was a bit unsure about this film as it is so long, but after the first half I was really pleased to have decided to see it. It was really worth it. The story is very well written and very well filmed. You barely feel the time passing and I got really curious about every new piece of this well thought social puzzle. I got really immersed in the film and I found it a very interesting portrait of that season.

I think I've never read anything by Camilo Castelo Branco, but now I think I should, and I will.

Today I'll be watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, I hope it is as good as I've been told it is.
