Lately I’m in a mood to watch films. It wasn’t only The Danish Girl. So I watched several films: one from festival (Japanese) for the celebration of Lunar New Year, two Polish and one 10 years old, in a TV. Continue reading to see the titles and reviews. Except one film (more like a documentary) others are rather surrealistic.

The Danish Girl Review

On January 22th The Danish Girl debuted in Poland as Dziewczyna z portretu. I have watched this film the very next day, and for the next days I’ve been reading many reviews of the said film.

This post will have two parts: my review of the film and comments about the reviewers and their opinions. I hope that I’ll give some pieces of thought to all those LGBT supporters who claim to act on our behalf.

Let’s watch the trailer first.

The Yacoubian Building review

I often treat suspiciously books that are claimed to be bestsellers and get awards. I don’t believe any longer in marketing slogans, because almost every book is a bestseller etc. But some books are worth of the praise they receive. One of such books is definitely The Yacoubian Building by Alaa Al Aswany.

This is a story of several people in 1990’s Cairo, tho Al Aswany weaves into the story the tales of Egypt even from 30s. The people are of different social standings. Taha who is dreaming of becoming policeman, beautiful Busayna sexually harassed by employer, old playboy Zaki, a millionaire Azzam and a homosexual journalist Hatim and his lover Abduh (the last one a secondary character). All of them are linked somehow by The Yacoubian Building in Cairo (a real building, in fact).

Gorące uczynki review

This is another book by a Polish writer Witold Jabłoński that I read in January 2014. This time I labelled it as a part of Polacy nie gęsi and The Full House challenge (as a “From the Local Library”).

Those who dislike the LGBT characters and sex between members of the same sex, shouldn’t read this book.  All the others, I invite to read more.
