I finally got to see Syrian Bride last night. It was just delightful, a splendidly sappy, soapy spectacle full of human warmth and absurd comedy. It provided great cover for a few cathartic tears.

I think I'm going to be seeing a lot of movies this week, as part of my "just keep swimming" strategy to get myself out of the funk I seem to have gotten into.

Current Mood: contemplative contemplative
Current Music: theme music from the Syrian Bride website

Oh I really like the sound of a just keep swimming strategy. I rarely see films so maybe I can adopt and amend your idea to keep myself afloat. I think I'd like to see Tstotsi but can't think of much else at the cinema worth my time and spondoolas at the moment.

Casually waving from the bottom of a deep murky pond :)

I read somewhere that when life is not great and you don't know what to do or can't do much about it, the best thing is to dial your pleasure quotient up a notch. For me that means indulging in lots of subtitled and otherwise-arty movies. I'm pretty sure I'm to going to see Tsotsi tonight!

Your pond sounds a lot like mine, inko. Here's a wave back.
