Watch Olanda For Free
Tells the story of mushroom pickers who, in the summer and autumn months head, to the southern Carpathians of Romania to begin their search. Far from being a leisure activity, for many of the pickers this is a main source of income which they and their families rely on to get by. In makeshift campsites, they spend months between dense coniferous forests and the Transalpina road, where they sell the gathered mushrooms to passing tourists or people on weekend breaks. The majority of their harvest is taken by intermediaries, who sell the mushrooms abroad for many times the price.

One of the wrost movies I have ever seen
The movie's only flaw is also a virtue: It's jammed with characters, stories, warmth and laughs.
The storyline feels a little thin and moth-eaten in parts but this sequel is plenty of fun.
Based on a true crime and a notable media circus, Dog Day Afternoon retells the tale of John Wojtowicz (Al Pacino) and Salvatore Naturale (John Cazale), two Vietnam War vets, who have been beaten down by life and one day have a bright idea: "Hey, banks have money, right?"The movie takes us through the events in a slow, deliberate manner. Almost no music is used, the set is almost just the bank and the street outside, the actors were given a lot of freedom to improvise their lines - especially the heated parts - and all in all the film tries to really take you there.And it works. Especially because Pacino and Cazale are two such memorable, identifiable actors. Their characters are two simple idiots, who really didn't have a plan beyond walking in with guns. But that's what makes this movie stand out. These two feel like real people, with their odd idiosyncrasies and short-fused tempers. They're certainly not the criminal masterminds you usually see in heist movies.That being said, the film can feel a bit slow, but then again, that's sort of the point. Once they end up taking hostages, it becomes a waiting game, and that's reflected in how the story is told. Could the narrative be a bit tighter? Maybe, but then again, just as I was about to become genuinely bored, the film picked up the pace and threw in some now plot developments. So it's a measured amount of slowness. Can't really argue against it.Dog Day Afternoon is a great watch if you're a Pacino fan or you're looking for a film where it feels like you could round a corner and walk straight into it.
Never have I seen a better movie than AAA when it comes to comedy. Watch the flick without a second thought: I assure you'd watch it again and again and again and never get jaded of its masterclass.
I only watched this movie because it was the highest rated on IMDB that I hadn't seen before. I don't generally watch really old films, particularly from the silent era. City Lights has made me rethink that tendency.Solid laughs throughout. Chaplin's comedic choreography skills are rare qualities in today's cinema. Jackie Chan comes to mind.Since I hadn't seen this movie before, but had grown up with old Bugs Bunny cartoons, it was funny to realize where they got much of their material.I was surprised by the amount of subtle humor in there as well. Like a wink from Charlie to us, his audience; a reminder that this he is taking us on a journey. And that whatever is in our head at any given point in the movie, is what he put there.This is solid storytelling from when film was truly a visual medium. I'm surprised that it hasn't been remade in modern form. That would be a good writing exercise.An impressive film from a multi-talented man. I highly recommend it.
This is one of those movies that's hard to rate because on a storytelling level it's really bad, but for that very reason it's highly entertaining. Chock full of so bad it's good moments. Before things go south the killer manages to intimidate a woman into butting in line to use a safety deposit box, right in front of a guard and the manager. A robber frisks a woman for a phone but doesn't check her back pocket. A robber manages to fight energetically while bleeding out. At a point where the robbers know there's a serial killer roaming around, a robber agrees to take an old lady to the bathroom, thus separating them. A robber steps outside while the police are there and isn't immediately arrested. There's a still-working elevator that's been walled off. And I haven't even gotten to the twists that happen near the end. Other than it being way too recent to be in the public domain, it would be a perfect movie for Mystery Science Theater 3000. Get a group of friends together and have fun riffing on this.
