Couldn't be more different

I watched two very good films recently.

City of Men, which I bought ages ago after watching City of God. A beautifully made film with a brilliant cast and musical score. Some of the scenes made me fell really summery with the heat of the hot Brazilian sun radiating from the screen and how lush the sea of la playa looks However, it is full of death, hatred and misery due to the upset of the gang warfare in these favelas.

And then Rosie lent me this the night before. Short and sweet. How the most unlikely couple meet, and their fun times together. A very funny film, the way Harold's mother tries in desperation to stop him from killing himself over and over, I found hilarious :)
