    Bagdad Cafe is a really nice one.

    It's a little sad at the beginning, but don't worry ...
    That's a very nice film - warmhearted and humorous.

    I just saw JoJo Rabbit starring and produced by Taika Waititi. It won’t likely be everyone’s taste as usually expected with dark comedies like this one. I was impressed by the acting and cinematography. The film does a fantastic job in the zaniest and simultaneously thought provoking manner whilst illustrating the effects of politics and war on children.

    All in all, I enjoyed it immensely.

    "Il Postino" ... you'll soon get used to the sub-titles.
    Great tragedy/comedy with some lovely music.

    footnote:
    The lead actor Massimo Troisi postponed heart surgery to complete
    the film and sadly died the day after his scenes were finished filming.

    edit:
    The soundtrack is exquisite

    Yesterday I watched 'Knives Out' together with my grandson, 28, and we both enjoyed it. I had got the impression that this was an Agatha Christie- inspired 'who dunnit' film, and it was in many ways, but yet so different. Great cast of actors - Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Chris Evans and more - and they all seemed to have a very good time,
