– 7 days in Havana of Benicio del Toro part of the Cine Latino Festival. The movie is a great compilation of seven short stories for each weekday, directed by seven international directors. I absolutely enjoyed the story told by Elia Suleiman – Diary of a beginner (Thursday). Without a single line for the entire sequence, he creates a brilliant piece of silent comedy.
A friend of mine posted this video marking the Romanian Spring festival – Martisor and the song just got stuck in my head. I didn’t hear it in a long time and the symphonic version is simply beautiful.
I tried to search for a translation of the lyrics, but didn’t have too much luck.
In any case, I hope you enjoy the music. And the Spring.
