our Palme d'Or

He is the one! Cristian Mungiu's (pronounced moon-gee-ou) production 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days ," a drama centered set in a small Romanian town during the last years of Communism, where two university students deal with an unwanted pregnancy", wins the 60th edition of the Movie festival in Cannes!
It is not a unique performance for the Romanian cinematography, this year, for Cristian Nemescu's California dreamin' won the Un certain regard prize.
The movie blog is here
take a look at the clip, thanks to Serrart on Youtube.

there's a Jesus for all of us

one of them is the Chocolate Jesus, says Tom Waits;)

a shame on the chocolate's cheek (ro )

IceChocoLand, the annual ice cream and chocolate festival started Yday at Bucharest's World Trade Center.
A festival, or how to claim you have an event...nothing new on the choc or icecream market. nothing new for a fair ( I've seen children sing, before). not even attractive prices.
If you go to the next supermarket, just pretend U've been to the festival.
For the WTC event is no reason for delight, in my humble chocoholic opinion.

45 years after

I like Winney!

Winney dances and makes an old lady dance which is remarcable in my humble opinion (of a person who haven't been dancing for at least two weeks, which is a loss, a terrible one;)

Animated cow Winney has featured in Kuntzel+Deygas's work since 1999. Here we see Winney in a contribution to a charity auction organized by Veuve Clicquot, Japan, from October 2006, and an exclusive glimpse of Winney's next performance.
