  3. Great post!!!What do you think about these latest releases from German Autheurs in 3D. Did you see Pina? what about the one from Herzog in the french cave?

      2. good body-languages, moods, emotions

  4. Hi Eliz… Killing Fields is really amazing… I remember even the soundtrack from Mike Oldfield… Great film!!!


  5. Thanks for the mention and pingback!
