...the 5th of November!
For those who don't know, this date is pretty special in the UK, as it turns out. It's the day Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the House of Parliament in the 1600s, but didn't managed to. So, what do the brits do?celebrate it with fireworks- which is a little weird, at least from my perspective. But hey, since I'm here, I'll just go with it, right?
I didn't go to watch the fireworks, so I decided to watch a movie, and what other one is more appropriate then V for Vendetta?
It surprised me...I didn't expect it to be that good! The story is interesting, well-written, it keeps you on edge and the end is beautiful, but unfulfilling, at least for me [SPOILER: who was V after all?SPOILER].
The performances are great, although Natalie Portman's accent was a little odd...but kudos for trying! I loved the scene where she starts having a panic attack and V calms her down, and the last scenes, on the night of the event, are powerful and memorable. It's nice to see people can come together and fight for a better life, but I wonder if this would have really happened, would the people in this world, in 2011, react the same? The movie raises some interesant questions!
All in all, I enjoyed watching this and I recommend it, it was good, especially on this particular night!:)
Did you see it?What did you think of it?
For the UK readers- did anything special tonight?
