film time

Last weekend I went to see the film Julie and Julia, and loved it. So so enjoyed it. Could be because i am missing the states just a little bit (the Halloween/Thanksgiving season can do that). It may be partly to the fact that I could relate a bit with the blogger story line (bar the fame part)  but probably has more to do with the fact that I have always been a fan f Julia Child and I do think that Meryl Streep did a fantastic job. If you are debating seeing this film- just go- see it, it's good. Good food, good music and a little window on a particularly sweet marriage.

Oddly enough, after not seeing a film in what feels like ages and ages I actually managed to see two last weekend.  The other was our first family film outing, we went  to see UP (popcorn and all) and enjoyed that too...  Really made us smile ( the Mr. and I ) kids all liked it too.  So there you have it - two film recommendations right here from the epicentre of culture and class, miracle alley,  malta!
 BTW That seriously is the name of our street.


  1. I saw Julie and Julia a while back. LOVED it! I wanted to go buy the cookbook and book it's based on and read them right away (but I didn't). Haven't seen UP yet. I love going to movies. One of my favorite pastimes.

  2. will definitely see Julie and Julia when it is released here :-)

  3. Yes, Jemm is right, it is pretty hard not to want to go out and start cooking after seeing it.

    There is an international film festival starting here this weekend which I am now itching to 'support'. I so love going to the cinema.

  4. I loved "up"! And on another note, I just got a new cookbook which I LOVE. "A platter of figs" by david tanis. yummmm and its a good read.

  5. Thanks for the tip Marchi, am a huge fan of figs! Can't wait to look up this cookbook!

  6. Thank you for the advice about the film Julie and Julia... my family and I sat down and watched it together Sunday afternoon and we realized that we all have a bit of Julia in us when in the kitchen!:)

  7. Glad you liked it! Thats just the kind of person you want to have in the kitchen! Sounds like you have a fun family.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy reading them.
