A Spring Day at the Movies: Slice of Life MM Day #22

I think Tuvia was pushing it a bit to sweep the leaves off the balcony and move our table and chairs from the wall to center stage and of course add our spring ornament to cement the season.  Okay, I can buy into his vision.  I WANT to believe that we are done with winter, right?  They are still calling for a Noreaster on Tuesday night.

But today we were feeling spring.  We drove to the Burns Film Center for a double bill of movies showing in connection to the Jewish Film Festival.  I don’t know that I could recommend either one, but who cares.  It’s an event to taste the wares of filmmakers.  The first film, For the Love of  a Woman.  This woman was gorgeous and her daughters were interested in her life’s journey when they discover secrets about her life as they rummage through the journals and clues she leaves behind.  Interesting…

Then a bit heavy-handed, an Argentinian film about Dr. Mengele, the sick Nazi doctor who loved experimenting on pregnant mothers and twins. Good thing the sun was still shinning as we left the theater.

It was a crazy mix of movies but that’s the fun of it.  We are going to see a Hollywood production with an all-star cast.


Bravo, filmmakers, everywhere.  Tomorrow we will be pushing to get to Cinema 100 for Bethlehem. Details to follow.

  1. Interesting how a movie can take your mind to so may different places. I haven’t been for a while but I do look forward to getting out with friends some night next week. Great slice! Glad I stopped by 🙂

  2. Sad to say, I haven’t been to a movie in a long time, but happy to hear about your movies, Bonnie. The two you saw sound interesting. I just read a YA bought, The Nazi Hunters, the story of capturing Eichmann & smuggling him back to Israel. It was fascinating. Maybe next time our film festival arrives, I will go to some of them. We used to go often. Did you know my son-in-law is a film editor? His company is the one who made “Saving Face” a couple of years ago. Enjoy your spring weather. It’s snowing here today, but warmer next week!

    • Tuvia got to see the Eichmann trial in person. I didn’t know that about your son in law. HOW COOL!!!! It could be snowing on Tuesday night and I’m scheduled for a drive to DC on Wednesday. YIKES!!!! I just made the connection.

  3. The last movie I saw was ‘Philomena.” Not a light one, even though it carried the message of forgiveness. Yet, one can’t just watch happy and funny all the time.
