Ross is deeply disappointed Von ELizabeth’s decision to go on with the marriage and he tries to forget her with other women and of course a lot of drinking. I did like the scene with the sex worker, where she seems to be a little bit in Liebe with Ross. She was such a nice lady and so sweet especially when she was advicing Ross to find a woman to Liebe and care, although that would mean she would lose him, because that is the type of man he is! link
Andrei, as usual, is weary of life. This guy seriously he was born disatisfied with life and sad. Well I guess it isn’t really strange with that crazy, patriarchal, selfish father and that annoying sister of his. However when he meets Natasha at the Rostov family Home it’s like a fresh breath of life and obviously he fells in Liebe with her. It’s absolutely natural that he feels drawn to her, since Natasha is so charming, pretty and full of life.

It seems that Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace («Война и миръ», Voyna i mir) novel is like the holy grail of every director who respects himself. It has been adapted for film, TV, opera, radio. IMDB Liste 9 War and Peace adaptations including 2 silent films. The novel was first published in 1869.

It is considered Tolstoy’s finest literary achievement, along with his other major prose work Anna Karenina (1873–1877).

I am ashamed to say that I have yet to read this one, mainly because...

"THE JOURNEY OF AUGUST KING" (1995) Review

When the 1995 adaptation of John Ehle's 1971 novel, "The Journey of August King" hit the theaters, it barely made a flicker in the consciousness of moviegoers. In a way, I could see why.

During his journey, he learns about a hunt for an escaped slave. August eventually comes across the slave - a 17 year-old...
