film exchange

29 May 2010

Duo, originally uploaded by At Home With Red.

While I was working this week I was listening to some old and new soundtracks we have. I love films and by writing this post I realize that most of the films I like have great music. Basically I'm a sucker for soundtracks. Here are some of them. In my opinion great films and great music. You can click on the name of the films and see the trailers.

Amoros Perros- "car accident connects three stories, each involving characters dealing with loss, regret, and life's harsh realities, all in the name of love" , Mexican

Babel - "4 interlocking stories all connected by a single gun all converge at the end and reveal a complex and tragic story of the lives of humanity around the world and how we truly aren't all that different." based in Marroco...and by the way Brad looks really good in there...

Piano- " There is a silence where hath been no sound. There is a silence where no sound may be in the cold grave under the deep deep sea.", classic

The End of Affair - the reason I called my company Sarah & Bendrix

Leaving Las Vegas- romantic drama film about a relationship between a suicidal alcoholic and a prostitute in Las Vegas ...Nicolas looks cool as well

The Reader- "WWII Germany: Nearly a decade after his affair with an older woman came to a mysterious end, law student Michael Berg re-encounters his former lover as she defends herself in a war-crime trial"...very strong story and again Raph him

Juno - "Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, an offbeat young woman makes an unusual decision regarding her unborn child.

Frida- "A biography of artist Frida Kahlo, who channeled the pain of a crippling injury and her tempestuous marriage into her work", Salma Hayek is brilliant

The Girl with a pearl Earing- "A young maid working in the house of painter Johannes Vermeer becomes his talented assistant and the model for one of his most famous works", sentimental, visually beautiful

The Motorcycle Diaries- "The dramatization of a motorcycle road trip Che Guevara went on in his youth that showed him his life's calling. "

Snatch- Guy Ritchie's gangster story

Dead Man - "On the run after murdering a man, accountant William Blake encounters a strange Indian named "Nobody" who prepares him for his journey into the spiritual world". ...Johny Depp very best..
I have always loved films and when I was a teenager I used to go to a film club and still remember watching independent movies on Mondays these
Carlos Saura - like Peppermint Frape
What about you ? do you like films? have you got any tips/ recommendations ? any film you have seen recently?


  1. I love Babel and The Reader. I am actually reading the original novel version of The Reader right now. Love it!

    Just came across your blog!

    It is lovely!

  2. Recently watched An Education - Carey Mulliagn won a Best Actress BAFTA - great film. I'm a big Brad admirer too - he looks great in The Mexican (with Julia Roberts who is always great).

  3. The Piano is by far my favorite film. I love everything that Jane Campion does. Also love all of Kieslowski's films. In terms of soundtracks, Brokeback Mountain and 21 grams. Beautiful and haunting.

  4. Atonement...wonderful book and movie.
    Also, The Painted Veil is a great book and fab movie w/ Edward Norton.
