The painted veil.

The painted veil 01

The Painted Veil is probably one of my favourite films (my list of those is long!) mainly because the scenery and atmosphere in it is so spectacular.

The painted veil 03

It makes me long to go to the Chinese countryside and to wear beautiful dresses from the 1920s.

The painted veil 02

Naomi Watts plays Kitty, a young woman who didn't get married to her husband, Walter, played by Edward Norton, because she loved him, but because she wanted to get away from her family. She has an affair, and Walter finds out. Kitty doesn't want to be divorced for adultery so she stays with Walter. She is forced to come with him into a remote area of China where he is to fight cholera, and hates it there. Walter tries to make life miserable for Kitty, and they barely speak with each other, but slowly they begin to have feelings for each other again.

On another note, my camera has been sent in to be repaired - and was apparently sent back to me, but it seems to have gone missing with the post. So extremely frustrating. That's why I haven't been posting much lately, but also because I've been quite busy.
Therefore I want to ask you, do you have anything you want to see in this blog? Really, anything? A few ideas, wishes and suggestions would be good so that I have something to post about until I get my camera back!

I LOVE this movie too! I have to watch it again now! Sorry about your camera, post whatever you like dear, it's always great! :o)

Filmen ser kjempefin ut, nå fikk jeg en ny skal-se-film på lista mi (takk!). Naomi Watts er en av favorittene mine (♥ King Kong).

Kanskje du kan skrive litt om hvordan du går frem for å sette sammen et antrekk? Hvor du finner inspirasjon, hvordan du "bygger opp" antrekket og velger accessories og sånt? Jeg synes alltid du har så fint sammensatte antrekk.

Og ja, det var nok Strandveien du så på bildet mitt :) 12kvm er egentlig for lite for meg, men det er praktisk nært skolen min og byen, og så kommer man ikke bort fra at det er ganske rimelig også...

Daisy said...

Oh the film looks delightful! I will have to watch it soon!

Oh and i was lucky that at the festival it was very sunny ! However the year before it had rained the whole time ! !

agus said...
