• The History of Love – Povestea iubirii

    Trebuie să recunosc că mi-era puțin teamă de posibilitatea ca un titlu precum “Povestea iubirii” să ascundă un fel de sirop romanțios. Aflând că este vorba despre povestea de dragoste a unor tineri evrei polonezi despărțiți de război, am suspectat că siropul are o esență tragică, complet demotivantă. Fiind totuși semnat de Radu Mihăileanu, filmul ...

  • Re Profumo, Alexandros

    The smell of a sunny memory, this is how I would describe Alexandros in a few words, considering its rare to encounter ability of becoming an olfactory signature. Coming from someone who’s got a perfume for every mood, the statement is pretty bold. The aroma meets, however, quite a few challenging terms: it’s extremely special, ...

    Ce se întâmplă dacă așezi o lupă asupra relației dintre doi oameni ?

  • From a Playful Test to a Forgotten Pioneer: Annette Kellerman, Queen of the Sea

    I was fooling around the house, one day, taking random pictures to test the lighting at different hours. I was not going to ever release this somewhat funny image of me, but for whatever reason, I kept it. Yesterday I saw the short video linked below and I was surprised by a certain image which, ...

  • The Feminine Touch

    I have a soft spot for big earrings and chiffon blouses. Modern life expects me to be up and ready from 6 am 'till... night time, so I don't put on dresses as often as I'd like to, but every once and again, I feel the need to add a feminine touch to my outfits. ...

  • Eisenberg, So French!

    So French! is a strong perfume which smells, well... French. It sounds almost too simple and yet it’s one of the most sophisticated fragrances I’ve ever felt. Because it summarizes and contains the essence, the magic which can transform the appearance just by wearing a particular scent. So French! smells like spring time, in Paris. ...

  • Throw a Coin Up in the Air…

Emma Stone și Ryan Gosling își pun la bătaie talentul, charisma și chimia dintre ei, încercând să ne răspundă la întrebare, în pași de dans. În miticul Los Angeles, o actriță aspirantă întâlnește (de mai multe ori și cât se poate de nereușit) un ...

  • Longing for Green / Dor de verde

    Flipping through photographs, I realize I would very much like to gather all my favourite corners of the city and reassemble them into a smaller town where I would have all of my friends come to visit. There are some I would keep to myself, I admit. But there would still be enough left to ...
