Yesterday we went to see “Cold Mountain“. Both Olga and I are very impressed. Still. :)
There are not that many films that make you think how wars really suck. Sure there is usually a lot of shooting and shouting, but the atmosphere is totally wrong. “Cold Mountaint” doesn’t have lots of shooting and shouting. But it makes you hope that you never see a real war. No matter how far people are from the battlefields – they still suffer, they still change.
The film is excellent as a whole. Soundtrack is great. Plot is great. Acting is great. And it doesn’t come as a surprise. Most of the people who worked on the film, are very well known. Producer – Anthony Minghella, the same guy who produced “English Patient” and “Talented Mr. Ripley“. Main roles were played by Jude Law (“Enemy at the Gates“), Nicole Kidman (“Moulin Rouge!“), Renï¿½e Zellweger (“Me, Myself & Irene“).
This film is not something that I want to have on DVD, but it’s a definite must see.
