A Different Post, Some Excellent European Movies I Saw this Week

All of these movies have won several film awards.
Movie 1: 
MAESTRO
A French Comedy from 2014.  85 mins long.
A strory about a young actor who is taken under the wing of a legendary French film maker. 
It was an over all entertaining movie…very good.

Movie 2:
THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED.
SWEDISH MOVIE, COMEDY, 114 MINS.  2013.
This was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen!  I could see this happening:  An amazing old guy who did all sorts of amazing things in life, you learn about in backstory, and he gets mixed-up in another crazy epic after he jumps out the nursing home window and escapes. 

MOVIE 3:
KON-TIKI.  NORWAY MOVIE.  DRAMA/ADVENTURE.  2012.  ACADEMY AWARDS AND GOLDEN GLOBES 2013.
“The powerful true story of young Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl who in 1947 embarked on an astonishing expedition – a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean on the Kon-Tiki raft.”

INCREDIBLE cinematography!

The shark scenes had me on the edge of my seat. 

Great story!

I didn’ get to see two others I wanted to see…maybe sometime:
1.  Dead Man Talking, from Luxembourg, 2012.  Drama/Comedy.  And,
2.  Purgatorio, from Spain.  Horror/Suspense.  2014.
