The perfect film night…


Everyone has their own idea of an ideal film night. Elselien van Dieren tells about hers.

When I’m with a group of friends

I don’t watch many films with my friends, because there is always somebody who can’t shut up. So when I do watch a film with a group of people it has to be a funny and light one. The Hangover 1 is the perfect film for a night like this. I chose the first one, because the The Hangover 2 was definitely less funny. And beside that, we all love tigers (and Mike Tyson).

The Hangover (2009)

Genre: comedy

Director: Todd Phillips

Actors: Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha

When I’m actually hangover 

When it’s one of those days I even have a hard time to understand the news, so I put a very easy film in my dvd-player. It’s usually something that a proper guy would ran away from, Sex and the City 2 for example. The story is very predictable, but the styling is – as the characters would say – fabulous.

Sex and the City 2 (2010)

Genre: drama/romance

Director: Michael Patrick King

Actors: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattral, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon

When I’m with my boyfriend

I dragged my boyfriend to the cinema to see SATC once and he still isn’t recovered. Luckily he didn’t break up with me, because we do have some other genres in common. We are both into history, so our perfect film night would include a story about the Second World War. I chose Der Untergang (The Downfall), an impressive portrait of the last days of Hitler.

Der Untergang (2004)

Genre: drama

Director: Oliver Hirschbiegel

Actors: Bruno Ganz, Alexandra Maria Lara, Ulrich Matthes

When I’m sad

Well, life isn’t always easy for a student in a modern Western society. When I feel miserable I really like to watch films about people who feel more miserable than me. Stories about making wrong choices, about losing faith. And I’m cruel. When I’m not happy, they don’t deserve a happy ending either.

The Atonement (2007)

Genre: drama

Director: Joe Wright

Actors: Keira Knightly, James McAvoy, Brenda Blethyn
