Come on guys! Wake up from your Hollywood daze and open your eyes to the beauty and power of real cinema. What I personally like about European films are their abilities to pinch you and move you to feel and think. If there’s one thing that experts and movie fans share about European films, it’s the heart and mind that are put into these films that make them different from Hollywood’s entertaining and commercial works.
In fact, European films try their best to mirror reality. As such, it’s about time we get to watch films that will jolt us instead of those that make us laugh and forget about the films’ stories right after. It’s about time we go to the cinemas not to come out dazzled by big guns and exciting sex scenes, of the fast and the furious, but to become more reflective and critical thinkers.
So make sure, before the 13th Cine Europa film fest ends this Sunday, you get to watch a film or two. They’re for free, the film fest is in accessible and aesthetically pleasing Shangri-La mall, and more than anything, they’re a taste of European sensibilities.
Come on guys, let’s have a break from Hollywood and celebrate!

I highly suggest these two: Greece’s “El Greco” and Spain’s “Juana la Loca”
