Hello DonaldHorp,
Unfortunately your information arrived at the "wrong department", because this here is the movie-section...
... If you wish to let us know about kidney friendly food and how to cook it, please do that in the "Diet and Recipes" section.
And please write to us in English because Russian is such a difficult language ...
P.S. Pushkin and Tolstoi are among my favourite autors, but I can only read their wonderful thoughts in translation...
Thanks from Kristina.

As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me (German: So weit die Füße tragen) with English subtitles (Youtube) is a 2001 film about German World War II prisoner of war "Clemens Forell's" escape from a Siberian Gulag in the Soviet Union many thousands of miles back to Germany. The film is based on the book of the same name written by Bavarian novellist Josef Martin Bauer. The book is in turn based on the story of Cornelius Rost who used the alias "Clemens Forell" to avoid retribution from the KGB after his escape. According to the Munich registration office, Cornelius Rost returned to Germany from war imprisonment in Russia on 28 October 1947. In 1953 he started working in the in-house printing division of a publishing house in Munich where he ruined numerous book covers because he had been made colour blind in Russia's lead mines, where he was forced to work during his imprisonment. His employer sought an explanation for this and thus learned about Cornelius Rost's experiences and Rost was asked to write down his recollections. His story is a true story about the art of survival ...
I remember watching the 1959 film-version of this story when it was shown in the 1960's/1970's (?) on TV and I was very impressed by this story, especially since my own childhood was dogged by constant sickness and I was inspired by this true story to find a way forward despite my own poor health ...

"Letter from an Unknown Woman" by Stefan Zweig was first published in 1922 and basically tells the story
of a successful author who reads a letter written by a woman he does not know or remember ...
... and whilst reading her letter he gets glimpses into her and his own life story...
... Many years ago I read the book and I was quite astonished and also a little confused about the fact
that Stefan Zweig (the writer) was able to analyze so touchingly the deepest emotions/thoughts of a female? ...
... and I still wonder about the story behind this story... ?...
"Letter from an Unknown Woman" was put into film and directed 1948 by Max Ophüls
with Joan Fontaine and Louis Jordan and is shown on youtube...

Hangover Square (1945) with Laird Cregar & Linda Darnell (1 hour 17 minutes)
is a real YouTube gem and the atmosphere in the film is totally absorbing and was firmly holding my attention all along ...
Hangover Square is a 1945 film noir directed by John Brahm, based on the novel "Hangover Square" (1941) by Patrick Hamilton.
The screenplay was written by Barré Lyndon who made a number of changes to the novel, including the transformation of "George Harvey Bone" into a classical composer-pianist and filming the story as an early 20th-century period piece...
... worth watching...

It's the time for the big summer movies, so what have you all seen so far?

In one weekend, I saw "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Pitch Perfect 2".  Rather different movies, don'tcha think??  LOL!  I was not all that into the original Mad Max franchise, but I kept hearing such rave reviews that my interest was piqued.  I was shocked by how much I enjoyed that movie.  The plot was universal, really, but the execution was downright Wagnerian.  It was gobsmackingly creative. 

I had to go see Pitch Perfect 2 just to see the cameo appearance of the Green Bay Packers.  Worth it!

I saw "Dope" last week, and I thought it was funny with likeable characters. 

"Inside Out" was creative and presented a way of looking at the workings of the brain that is much more fun than neuroscience!

"Spy" was a riot and was truly well written.  It's Melissa McCarthy at her very best.

Anyone have thoughts on either these or other movies out this season?

Saw Jurassic World with my daughters and we all liked. No deep story, of course, but lots of action and great dinosaurs.

Ancient Knowledge ( full video HD ) - YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfegFnaRcqE

I am about two hours into this 5 hour program.  Amazing examples of very old civilizations knowledge of math and this planet.  Applications of this proved but some of the massive construction that has endured thousands of years until even today.   Scientist and archeologist still cannot explain how they had such knowledge, nor how they could apply it to construction on such massive scale with the near perfect precision that is still difficult today.

The 5 hour program is sort of a shortened version, as if you open youtube and search 'Ancient Knowledge' you will find it also available in 6 programs totaling 7 hours.   I may have to watch that also just to see what has been left out in this 5 hour version.

Like I said, amazing information of elementary things,  NONE of which we are taught in school.  Rather, if any was mentioned in school they sure didn't spend much of any time on it.

Romance in a Minor Key directed by Helmut Käutner (courtesy of youtube)
Paris, late 19th century ... Madeleine leads a double life... She is married to an upright, honourable bank clerk,
a model husband who hardly knows his wife...
... fascinating film about a grieving husband (the honourable bank-clerk) who tries to uncover the truth behind his wife's suicide,
leading him to discover a tragic tale of infidelity and redemption... worth watching ...

Sorry I made a mistake, this film Romance in a Minor Key directed by Helmut Käutner (courtesy of youtube)
is presented (on youtube) only in the Italian- , French-  or German language, but unfortunately not in the English language ... sorry about that ...  :embarassed:

Hillary's America 2016   :thumbup; x 5

Really everyone needs to go see this.  I'm not saying this because I'm a Republican.  I am also reading "The making of Donald Trump" just to be fair.

I wish both parties had someone better to vote for.  Just go see this movie.  I dare you.

I often think of my memory as a worn out clutch, slipping.   Actually, Paul Simon recorded a song, he may not have been thinking about memory but it sure applies.  Slip sliding away.   I can get pretty irratated at myself when this occurs.  Like now.   A minute ago I knew the name,  Not now.

Whatever.

I recently saw Mel Gibson with his beard.  I have to admit that it looks good on him.  He was on the Late Show with the current host.  I still miss Carson.  And it is hard to believe that Leno has done the show long enough to retire.

Another 'Whatever'.

They were discussing Mel's' most recent movie that is now debutting, that is the name I cannot remember.  They ran a scene clip.  And Mel gave a little background on his reasoning behind making this film.  It is based on a REAL person.  A consciencious objector during WW2.  Unwilling to handle any weapon he became a corpman, saving many lives and actually recieved a Medal of Honor.   Mel went on to describe things this man did that he had to leave out of the movie as he feared viewers would not believe it to be true.

I have not seen this movie, yet.  But it is pretty high on my Have To Do list.

I cannot remember that name.  Driving me nutz.   Which really isn't very far now.

Take Care,

We need to resurrect this thread!!

Which movies have you all seen lately, and what did you think of them?

Do you still go out to the cinema, or do you watch most movies at home?  Do you stream them, or do you get them on DVD?

It is rare for us to see a movie in the theater.  Especially since we have Amazon Prime for streaming and a shiny new 4K UHD TV. 

The last movie we saw in the theater was Snowden.  DH wanted to see it and he literally sat in the theater like  :o the whole time.  He hadn't followed the story much in the news so it was all fairly new to him. 

We are planning to go see Passengers in 3D on Christmas Day.  We don't celebrate with family on December 25, so we do the "Chinese food and movie" thing.  This again is DH's idea as he is new to 3D as he grew up with lazy eye that was only fairly recently corrected.  He's not much on sci fi, but for some reason, he is interested in the plot of this movie.

This reminds me that I need to buy our tickets ASAP.
