The Terminal

Olga and I watched “The Terminal” today. I’ve been looking forward for this movie and I wasn’t wrong. The film is excellent.

Somehow this movie reminded me about all those films I watched while being a kid. They were from those times when movies mostly weren’t about the special effects or technology. They were about people and their relations. “The Terminal” is exactly that kind of movie. It shows how screwed up is the way that society is going. People don’t have time to enjoy themselves and things around them. Beurocracy is getting in the way instead of helping out. Noone cares about noone. Damn. This points of this film are very applicable to Cyprus, which is a small island with small number of people on it and very strong family relations. It is not that bad, but it surely is heading that way. I can only imagine what is going on in big cities and countries, such as film’s place – New York’s airport.

Anyway, back to the film. It is an excellent piece of work. Two people made the biggest contritubion to it – Steven Spielberg directing and Tom Hanks acting. Catherine Zeta-Jones was episodical, nice to look at, but she didn’t add too much to the film.

I’ll rate it as 10 out of 10. I don’t think that everyone will like it. It’s just that I do. And that’s all that matters.
