Greek cinematography is excellent but not always recognised.Of course we have Theo Angelopoulos and his masterpieces but we haven't had a nomination for the Best Foreign Language movie in the Oscar Academy Awards since 1977. And yes after so many years a Greek movie made it to the nominations. It is George Lanthimos' film Dogtooth. I had seen the film when it was on our cinemas. It is a strange film,a very original script,and it is a great food for thought film.I won't give out details but if you happen to be able to watch it don't miss it. A very different film.
Today the mail brought lovely things.
Sometime ago I had seen the collaboration of Arounna and Jill of Today I saw blog and I really liked the four seasons that were the result of this collaboration.They arrived today and I will have them framed the soonest.They are lovely although the photo does not do credit to them.
There was also a colourful parcel today from Portugal. And it included two beautiful delicate pieces of art by otchipotchi Paula Valentim. Paula had made those a long time ago as tests for her final diploma work which is not reproduced.She was very kind to send me those two last pieces and I am lucky and grateful. I love her work. These are her shells empty....
Going back in time here are a couple of photos I took this morning at school. I love finding details and corners at school and enjoy their beauty.
My coffee warm and bitter sweet with a little milk next to the window. I don't have that much time to sit down though.
