Movies and art

We went to see the movie Les Miserables couple of weeks ago, and we liked it, but I wish I had known more about the scene when Fantine's life turned even worse, because it was not something to watch comfortably with my kid. I know, many movies have worse, including the TV, but I filter a lot :o)
Anyway: tear jerker as expected, visually fantastic, musically fine.

So, my daughter was inspired to create this artwork:



This, made the film better for me.... I am so proud of her  (◠‿◠)✌

  4. Hi Martha. Wow you should be very proud of your daughter. She has done a fantastic job. I haven't seen the movie which means I'll probably wait till it's out on DVD. I watched Julie and Julia again for the 100th time. I like to pick a movie, toss it in the player and listen/watch while I'm doing my housework, the little h/w I do that is.:) I've gotten lazy. You know how I know that? Tortillas haven't been made in a couple of weeks. lol. Take care.

  10. what a fabulous piece of art your daughter has created! I knew what the movie was all about-saw the original version on tv (1934ish)-no singing-which also was thoroughly enjoyable. Also watched the French version on film.Normally not my thing as I stay away from anything remotely with fighting and bloodshed.But this version on the big screen was stunning!!(even tho I teared up -aLoT).Happy PPF, and to your young un-keep on arting!

    1. I'm guessing without singing the movie has to be more intense....? I haven't seen those older ones.

  13. Martha, what an artist your daughter is! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, eh? I haven't seen the movie, but I still hope to be able to. It's not the type of movie my dh likes to go to. We hardly ever go to the movies any more so i'll probably have to find a friend to accompany me.

  16. Your daughter's work is so expressive - just look at those faces! I haven't seen the film, but I have just seen Hugo and I am sure it is something children would love as well - happy film with no nasty bits.
