And my body said ”No!”

. Yesterday was one of the rare days when Chéri and I are both off from work. We usually take advange of it to do our shopping, or pending chores. But Chéri suggested that we went to the cinema to see the latest film starring my all-time favorite Québécois actor (Rémi Girard… Awwwwwwwww). He didn’t…… Continue reading And my body said ”No!”

Forbidden games…

I think memories have a life of their own… They come and go as they please, and sometimes when they visit you, they bring back a wave of souvenirs along… Today, as I was working, I suddenly remembered something I hadn’t thought about in decades. I can’t put my finger on what brought this piece…… Continue reading Forbidden games…

Druk… Take two?

Oh, the dilemma. Exactly five months ago, I was dancing a happy dance in my livingroom, after buying theater tickets to see the movie the Danish movie Druk. To say that I was excited would be an understatement… I was absolutely thrilled to leave the safety of our apartment for a couple of hours. But, as…… Continue reading Druk… Take two?

Druk!

When not able to go to Denmark, let Denmark come to you! I have been waiting for Druk (”drunk” in English) for a long time, now. The filming of new Danish movie starring Mads Mikkelsen had been delayed, back in May of 2019, when the director’s daughter was killed in a car accident. Ida was Thomas Vinterberg’s…… Continue reading Druk!

Here in Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving a couple of weeks earlier in the year, and it is much less…… Continue reading Thank you Arthur…

New Cinema Festival…

  If you’ve been a regular in The Cove for a while, you might know that I used to make sure to have my Montréal World Film Festival passport every summer, and I spent countless hours watching movies from all around the planet. Unfortunately, the festival is taking a pause this year, and I thought…… Continue reading New Cinema Festival…

Holy…

Recently, I sat, wondering what was the funniest thing I ever watched… That’s a hard thing to decide, after four decades. I like comedy in general, and I have seen my share of funny things. But one movie kept standing out, and after much thinking, I think I can finally give it the gold medal for good…… Continue reading Holy…

Arctic…

  Sunday was movie night again! Aside from my boulimic attendances to the Montréal World Film Festival, I don’t go to the movie theater very often. It is very rare that I’ll go twice within a couple of weeks, but I couldn’t take a chance to miss Arctic, so I went to the cinema again,…… Continue reading Arctic…
