El cartero y Pablo Neruda



Por razones políticas el poeta Pablo Neruda (Philippe Noiret) se exilia en una isla en Italia, provocando un aumento del volumen postal del pueblo por lo que se contrata al protagonista, (Massimo Troisi) un hombre casi analfabeto como cartero extra, encargado exclusivamente de cuidar la gran correspondencia que recibe Neruda y entregársela diariamente. Gradualmente entre los dos se va formando una sólida amistad. El cartero, Mario, conoce entonces la poesía del poeta y termina encantándose y enamorándose de la poesía misma. Puesto que comienza plagiando a Neruda para conquistar el corazón de la niña más bonita del pueblo (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) ante los reclamos del poeta exclamara: "La poesía no pertenece a quien la escribe sino a quien la necesita" frase que se transforma en un símbolo de la película.
Neruda más tarde retornaría a Chile, dejando, sin embargo, una profunda huella en el cartero, que cambiará su vida.

Sleepy Hollow




In Tim Burton's stylish, creepy retelling of the classic Washington Irving story, Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is a squeamish, bookish 18th century New York City investigator sent to a small town in lower Westchester county to look into three mysterious decapitations.
When the always rational Crane arrives at the little Dutch village, he finds that most of the townsfolk believe the culprit to be the Headless Horseman, the ghost of a monstrous Hessian soldier (Christopher Walken), who seems to be mysteriously tied in to one of the town's most prominent families.
Burton's natural instincts for humor, combined with the hauntingly gorgeous technical work (Emmanuel Lubezki's cinematography and Danny Elfman's score included), collide to create a work of exhilarating entertainment and poetic storytelling.
Miranda Richardson, Casper Van Dien, Christina Ricci and others help make up an ensemble cast that, combined with the historically accurate village sets and dreamlike magic of the haunted Western Woods makes Sleepy Hollow a visually stunning, gripping, and, at times, chilling film.

Pearl Harbor


Plot Synopsis

by Karl Williams (allmovie)

At the time of its release, this lavish period war drama from hyperkinetic director Michael Bay became the most expensive motion picture ever green-lighted by a studio. Ben Affleck stars as Rafe McCawley, a military pilot stationed under Jimmy Doolittle (Alec Baldwin) in New Jersey, along with his best friend from childhood, Danny Walker (Josh Hartnett). Rafe is chomping at the bit to get involved in World War II, but America has not entered the conflict, so he is forced to fight on loan to the Royal Air Force in Britain, leaving behind his beautiful girlfriend Evelyn (Kate Beckinsale). After Rafe goes overseas, both Danny and Evelyn are transferred to the naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where word arrives that Rafe has been killed in action. A grief-stricken Evelyn and Danny become romantically attached, a situation that becomes a lit powder keg when Rafe suddenly reappears, having survived his ordeal in the European war. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor puts the romantic triangle on hold, as the best friends are ordered to undertake a top-secret and highly dangerous retaliatory mission to bomb Tokyo, once again under the command of Doolittle. Although the trio of leads are entirely fictional, Cuba Gooding Jr., Tom Sizemore, and Jon Voight (as FDR) co-star in the roles of real-life historical figures. Pearl Harbor is based on a script by Randall Wallace, writer of Braveheart (1995) and The Man in the Iron Mask (1998). Taking a page from the production history of James Cameron's Titanic (1997), many of the actors and filmmakers involved with Pearl Harbor deferred their usual salaries until the film "broke even" at the box office.
