Last two films of 2008

Just to record briefly that I watched a couple more films in the last few days of last year, both of which bring moisture to the eye at appropriate moments.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being - had seen this when it first came out, and loved it then; now it does seem a bit long, but the great moments - Tereza's frenzied love-making to Tomas, the Russian invasion and immediate aftermath, the idyllic retreat to the countryside and unforgettable ending - remain great.

WALL-E - normally I hate cute robots, but WALL-E and EVE are just made to make you go awww. A couple of musical nods to 2001 (Strauss and Wagner) and Sigourney Weaver as the voice of the computer to delight us older fans; the plot is pretty simple and a lot of its details don't really withstand scrutiny, but I have to remember that I am not the main target audience.
