A Surprise date! A movie, ” House Maid”, an old Korean Black and White film from the 60′s at BAM, dinner at Nobu ( great Great dinner yet bit over rated by the way…!), against the blowing wind of Tribeca cobble stoned corners in tipsy and silly walk together (ahhhh, the best time!), a fun cab ride across the city, at Times Square doing all the tourist things you can ever imagine… then totally on and at 43rd floor Spectacular room at W hotel Times Square with a view of the heart of all! A Bright Sexy New York Thing! It totally reminded us the first ever trip to NYC together. 28 days at Big Apple Hostel at Times Square Julie found us! ( Julie I need to thank you again, because maybe that was the real best time at NYC still as of today, the coolest and most real fun New Yorkers we met there!)
Last night, We felt the NYC all over again. We were really in the city again. I mean when do you get to sleep at Times square or even in the city if you lived in Brooklyn and worked in the city for last 15 years! So wish we had a small apartment in the city now! We had bit corny yet the best Fabulous time! How much we laughed! We were making fun of ourselves but couldn’t ignore that we were totally having fun. It just felt like the second date we had 17 years ago. Young and Carefree!
Love You and NYC!!
Emi, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!
So fun!!! And Hope the actual goods will look good as the runway pieces!
And here’s the Campaign!
I was born in 1972. The hippie free rebellious organic everything 70′s. So wish I could have tasted the middle of all, but I was only a baby! Completely feeling the 70′s vibe in the fashion air for the moment, here I have a few tears put together.
Me 4, You 7.
Time flies. Life goes on. It is already 1 year since you passed away, Brother. Not sure how we wanted to pass the day, but we were sure not to cry about it. It’s a tragic loss we can not make up ever, but it was the day you left that long pain behind you. Your courage. The Re-Birth. So we celebrated. We wanted to prepare the moment you would have loved and you always loved and you always will. Especially with Gael. At the 4 seater table, I saw you sitting there next to Emi. We heard you laughing with us over Gael’s goofy faces and a Ninja serving crazy dishes for us. We poured you many glasses of wine and chatted with you again and again and again. We were happy that we knew you would love it. The moment just like this. It was the night for you and Gael. And we were there with you two.
We Cheer to you Brother. Many Happy Years to you and us together..! I love you, oppa.
Paris to Tokyo bound, back in September, tucked in a seat with a glass of wine and puffy eyes and legs. Feeling tired and desperately wanting to watch a good film. The perfect one for a long plane ride… Anyway, Browse and browse… and, Bingo! “I am love!” ” Tilda!” I only had read two lines of review and saw couple screen shots a while ago. The title always stayed in my head though. It’s such a luxury now to even think of going to the cinema to watch films. I mean I am way too busy. I got no time. So, plane ride is always a chance to make up on a few for me.
The first few scenes of Milano beautifully covered in quiet snow starts the film with wonderful John Adams’ score. I feel a slap on my face, an almost pleasant wake up call. I sit up. I am really getting ready to watch this. I knew this would be going to be different from anything else. I believe Admas’ genius scores are one big part for this film to stay in it’s particular invisible boundary of bit peculiar and almost bit strange modern vibe regardless of its exact time setting ( I believe it’s the turn of the Millennium ), the classic wardrobe ( Jill Sander and Fendi) and the home of Haute Bourgeoisie of Recchi family almost gives a mid century vibe. There’s lightness and this beautiful beautiful light in this film for the whole time which I envy and completely felt in love with. And John Adams sure does his part to that. Kudo to the director of this film Luca Guadagnino to pull it all together in such an artistic way and Yorick Le Saux ‘s magnificent Cinematography to die for. There’s a soft and free spirit of 70′s eyes to see the light in this film. It’s beautiful and organic.
There’s a huge influence of Michellangelo Antonioni’s Film-Making is in Io Sono Amore: The artful balance of Cutting and Intense camera work that patiently documenting little details around and within. Tilda Swinton shines with her powerful acting. She speaks so much in her silence. There’s sea of her emotion in her every little move. Her eyes pours all out.
Here I have a few of my favorite scenes from Io Sono Amore.
There are so much coming beyond this point. I didn’t finish the film on a way to Tokyo, so we got it through Netfilx. I highly recommend you to also watch the Director Luca and Tilda’s “Commentary ” on the special bonus track.
It’s a great new classic to learn what Cinema could do and can do.
Booooooooooooooo, Clinton Hill!
