Last night's movie...

I got occupied with a few things at home... didn't notice the time...called (....) and took a rain check on our dinner plans...

it was too late to go out anyways and I'm tired.. but I'm not I decided I'll just stay in and watch a movie.

I found an art film.. a German film I bought a while back.. but never came around to seeing it.

Mostly Martha.. (bella Martha) 2001

Directed by: Sandra Nettelbeck

Genre: Comedy/Romance/Drama

a "food movie".. a romantic comedy about a thirtysomething year old top chef in a four-star restaurant in Hamburg, Germany, who finds love in the kitchen. Chef Martha (Martina Gedeck), a perfectionist who lives to create culinary masterpieces. Her sister dies in a car accident which turns her orderly world upside down and she takes in her eight-year-old niece Lina, when a fun-loving sous-chef named Mario (Sergio Castellitto) who is hired to help out in the busy restaurant attempts to win her hardened heart.

a bit of humor.. a bit of romance.. and alot of food. A lovely, lighthearted movie with a beautiful soundtrack.

highly enjoyable... what a way to end my day ...

I'd give it...

foreign films, art films and independant movies are my favorite to watch.. they're kinda different and sometimes they're made with a low budget which makes them unique and carry a different flavor.

Enjoy it :)
