'Dalla nube alla resistenza (From the Cloud to the Resistance ) (1978), based on two works by Cesare Pavese, falls into the category of History Lessons and Too Early, Too Late as well. It, too, has two parts—a twentieth-century text and a text regarding the myths of antiquity, each set in the appropriate landscape. Pavese's The Moon and the Bonfires looks back on the violent deaths of Italian anti-Fascist resistance fighters; Dialogues with Leucò is a series of dialogues between heroes and gods, connecting myth and history and returning to an ambiguous stage in the creation of distinctions, such as that between animal and human, which are fundamental to grammar and language itself. Such a juxtaposition of political engagement with profoundly contemplative issues such as myth, nature, and meaning points to the characters of Empedocles and Antigone in the Hölderlin films.' (From "Landscapes of resistance. The German Films of Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub" by Barton Byg)
Two segments. The first one arranges six stories from Cesare Pavese's "Dialoghi con Leucò", taken from classical mythology. The second segment is taken from Pavese's novel "La luna e i falò... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

SVE u ovom filmu je najgore na svijetu. Kad saberete grozotu Transformersa i Twilighta, necete dobiti ni jednu trecinu uzasa ovog filma.

No trace of sympathy for any of the clichd cardboard characters - stuck out the last 30 minutes simply in the hope that the nastiest of the baddies would get his in some spectacular way but even that small pleasure was denied us. How do people get funding for such total dogs?

Brynn H (ag) wrote: Very long, depressing, and maybe I'm not being romantic but I did not like the ending. Without his job at NASA how does he think that he can keep supporting all these projects he wants to do, I don't think he would be as much help as he thinks....but overall I liked it.....but the girl sad acting was bad and the American technology seemed more like the 90's than 2004 but that might just be budget problems.

Zach Braff gives a great performance for a guy who just wants to feel again, Natalie Portman brings a fresh twist to the manic pixie dream girl, and the script masterfully diverts between comedy and drama. Oh yeah, and the soundtrack is hella rad.

Es una mezcla de comedia, accin y drama en la que Kevin Costner interpreta a un espa de la CIA radicado en francia y con la misin de terminar con una clula terrorista. No obstante, Ethan Renner (Costner) tendr problemas de salud y una familia que cuidar, luego de aos de abandono. Su hija adolescente se ha distanciado de l y tratar de recuperarla sin descuidar sus misiones y su problemas de salud. Es una pelcula para sentarse sin pensarla mucho y disfrutar, un verdadero intento de Kevin Costner por demostrar que puede ser un gran actor pero que no necesita tomarse las cosas demasiado serias, con Amber Heard como Vivi Delay, Hailee Steinfeld como Zoey Renner y Connie Nielsen como Christine, las ex mujer de Ethan

Filled with an all star cast this film is a real gem.It introduces a very beautiful but highly disliked woman who is on her Honeymoon with guests on the streamer that could all want her dead in her own way.The film builds mystery throughout but the scene with the Cobra is quite memorable. If you enjoy a mystery you'll enjoy this. A terrific film that was thoroughly enjoyable through out.
