Movie Mania: Love in the Afternoon

Hey Folks!
Today I have a classic for you. Directed by Billy Wilder in 1957, Audrey Hepburn and Gary Cooper are the shining stars in this romantic comedy.

 

The Plot:
Young Ariane overhears a telephone conversation her father, a private detective, has with one of his clients. He suspects his wife to have an affair with Frank Flannagan, a notorious playboy and wants proof. The young girl gets mixed up and decides to warn Flannagan, and maybe, just for once, the player gets played…

 

The Rating:
As you know, Audrey Hepburn is one of my all-time favourite actresses. In Love in the Afternoon she is just as lovely and charming (and maybe a little bit naive) as always. But what bothers me about this film is her chemistry with Gary Cooper: there is none. As lovers the two simply don’t work out on no level whatsoever. Unfortunately this awful match destroys the entire film, as the basic line is the love-story between them. Continue reading

Me from A to Z (part 1)

I saw a really cool idea for a post somewhere online and decided to jump on that train!
It’s about taking each letter of the alphabet and connecting it something related to me. However, I decided to split the post up, the next letters are coming up in a few days =)

As I posted this back in 2015, I updated a few things in this posts – so you’re getting the 2019 status right now!

A – Audrey Hepburn: She has always been one of my favourite actresses ever since I was little. To me she embodies everything – style, class, elegance, intelligence. I will always adore her – and most of all her movies.

B – Books: As you can probably tell from my blog, I really enjoy books. Although I have to read a lot of stuff for university I always find the time to sit down with a good book. I even feel a bit naked when I don’t carry a book around with me.

C – Communication: This is what I study at university. As of this semester I am officially a PhD student! So far I really flowers and skullenjoy it and never regretted the choice I made.

D – Drawing: I looooved to draw when I was younger but somehow along the way I completely forgot about it. However, I decided to start anew and get back into drawing. I even decided to broaden my artistic horizon and gave watercolors, pastel and acrylics a shot. Continue reading

Playlist #2: Songs for a Rainy Day

This summer the weather was rather shitty. Due to weeks full of rain I optimized my playlist for rainy weather. For me it contains everything: songs that lift you up, songs that you can chill to etc. I hope you enjoy this ten songs as much as I do =)

 

I. Snake Charmer by Blink 182: It’s my favourite song of the Neighborhoods album. I wasn’t too fond of the album in total but I really dig this one. It has a perfect vibe and nice lyrics.

 

II. This is the Way by Black Train Jack: I absolutely love this song. No matter what mood I am in this one always fits.
