Recently Cheri and I have been watching movies almost every night. I borrow the movies from our county library.

We have seen foreign films from Lebanon, Korea, Mongolia, Bangladesh.

2 weeks ago we saw Summer Interlude by Ingmar Bergman. A long, long ago on our first date I took Cheri to see The Silence, one of Bergman’s earlier movies.
This past week for the first time we saw Citizen Kane and Casablanca.
3 nights ago we saw the film,Wit, with Emma Thompson in the leading role. Cheri described Wit as very difficult to watch.
Last night we watched The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.  “Depressing,” Cheri said. I thought the movie was sad but inspiring.

  1. I love films. My husband not so much, but they are a wonderful escape for me, where I don’t have to concentrate quite as fully as when I’m reading. (Don’t tell a film critic that!) I love foreign films, especially. Have you seen the Japanese film Departures? So beautiful!


  2. Amazing picture!
    I’ve been slowly introducing my stepsons to the classics on our Friday night & home movie nights. They’ve surprised themselves by enjoying It’s A Wonderful Life, Goodbye Mr Chips & The Sound of Music!


  3. Gorgeous photo! Thanks for sharing the snapshot, as well as the tidbits about the movies you’ve seen recently. I saw Wit awhile ago, but don’t remember much about it.

    I can’t believe I’ve never seen Casablanca!

    You asked, when you visited my blog, if I worked at home…I do now. After more than three decades as a social worker, I retired and started writing. I have published five books and have two more almost ready to go.

    Thanks for visiting my post.


  4. OMG!!! That’s such an amazing picture! I can never get the butterflies around here to stay still long enough! (And amazing banner photo, too)

    Wish our library had a movie lending scheme.
