Marigold Hotel. The best of the exotic. And so cozy!

They started talking about India, and a picture appeared before our eyes: scatterings of all kinds of fruits and multi-colored seasonings, the smell of which intoxicates the head, the finest silk, the softest pashmina, bright cheerful colors, the shimmer of gem beads, the bustle, the crowd, which, however, is not annoying. And among all this oriental splendor, a small gray-haired woman slowly moves. This is the heroine of Judi Dench, who was brought (there is no other way to say it) from Foggy Albion to Jaipur. Or rather, to a dilapidated hotel, where she was promised heaven. Several more of Evelyn’s compatriots bought into the catchy advertisement of the “palace hotel,” who are now at a crossroads: pack their bags and return to their homeland or adapt to new conditions.

She decided to play a dangerous game: irony over the bourgeois

And finally, again about France. We're including Paul Verhoeven's new film, Her, on our "extra list." Suddenly? Of course, this is a thriller about rape! At first glance, this is true. Divorced businesswoman Michelle was caught just like a child: she opened the door to her cat, and let in a scoundrel in a mask, who caused a small pogrom, beat the heroine and brutally took possession of her right on the floor among the fragments. However, the victim behaved very strangely: she did not go to the police, washed away traces of the crime and began to figure out the villain - this was clearly someone from the circle of the owner of a computer game development company. Having started a dangerous game, the lady openly enjoyed the new sensations. And then we see the light: yes, this is a black comedy, Verkhoveen’s signature irony interrupted any thoughts about how scary it is to be alone in the house with a stranger... We also recommend this film because of the amazing Isabelle Huppert. At 63 years old, she easily played a 49-year-old pervert, and with such passion!
