The film is set in 1971, and it centers on the shifting priorities of a handsomely unkempt high-schooler (Clément Métayer) swept up in the nascent radicalism of the era. Early scenes depict this suburban teen attending student rallies and facing down baton-swinging riot cops during a thwarted demonstration. The period of this movie conveys of history as lived experience of the director. “Youth is a fantasy. It is something that always escapes from your fingers. You try to grasp it and it escapes,” Assayas says (Director of this movie)
This movie is a big-picture ideology that called for sweeping change was fragmented by countless micro-ideologies in irreconcilable conflict among all characters. Politics is everything: the social struggle all-consuming. But Gilles (main character) gradually becomes more comfortable with his life choices and learns to feel at ease in this new society. In general is a burning dramatic and thematic intensity with great talented young actors. Two thumbs up for smart movies!

This show has the greatest cast of freestyle motocross, trials and quad riders ever assembled, including recent X Games 2012 medalists Ronnie Faisst, Mike Mason, Taka Higashino and Winter X Games gold and silver medalist Colten Moore. The tour also includes former gold medalists Adam Jones and Matt Buyten as well as award-winning freestylers Derek Garland, Brody Wilson, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Wes Agee, Nick Dunne, Geoff Aaron, Keith Wineland and Marco Picado in this action-packed freestyle performance of pure danger and raw combat.
Freestyle acrobatics on road machines. To say that this show was “energy on steroids” is putting it mildly! Action packed, never ending excitement, pyrotechnics and stunts you would not believe. Set in the year 2150 in war-torn Los Angeles, there are two tribes of Nuclear Cowboyz: the Soldiers of Havoc and the Metal Mulisha and they’re being threatened with takeover by the Cyborg Army. The battle of good versus evil ensues through a back and forth of fearless and insane stunts on everything from motocross bikes to four wheelers and it’s all set to heavy metal and alternative music (heart thumping, really — I was totally rocked out.) The whole performance was fantastic, and very organized professional run. Two thumbs up!

Bieber, 19, has been banned from Vienna’s “trendiest” nightclub after his bodyguards allegedly became aggressive with patrons in the wee hours of Saturday morning after an international incident in that Club.
From director Paul Fraser (Heartlands, Somers Town, Dead Man’s Shoes) found the young and promissing Timmy Creed, who plays the 17-yar-old Noel, as well as the younger Paul Courtney (Paudie) and TJ Griffin (Scwally); the film also features established actors such as Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead, Hush), Don Wycherley (Father Ted, Ondine) and Sarah Green (The Guard), proving that
Set over Halloween weekend in 1987, My Brothers tells the story of three boys’ journey to replace their dying father’s watch. Using a battered bread van, the brothers embark on a journey across the wild Irish landscape to get to an arcade machine in the small Irish seaside town of Ballybunion, where an identical watch resides.
Along the way they’re detoured by escalating brotherly battles in an off-beat and moving journey that eventually, changes their relationship and leads them back to their dying father. The brothers’ relationship is solid and it never loses focus on the fact that it’s about them coping with the loss of their father. All three are very good actors and it’ll be a pleasure to see them in future roles.

Vega is not an ordinary artist. Her recent nomination for the Latin Grammy in the category of Best Pop/Rock Album is undoubtedly recognition for a great album, but also for a great artist. “La Cuenta Atrás” (Sony Music), produced by Sebastian Krys, a renowned producer, “is an optimistic record” according to Vega, “this is the record I had to make; this nomination is definitely encouraging and reaffirming and keeps me working in the same direction”. For this record, Vega has had the collaboration of exceptional musicians such as Abe Laboriel Jr., David Levita, Chris Chaney and Robert J. Manning Jr.
A musical genre often times describes an artist’s personality, but in Vega’s case definitions don’t apply. She was born in Cordoba, Spain, as Mercedes Migel Carpio, and graduated from her career in advertising and public relations. Vega has a great passion: music who is a performer and songwriter of her own songs. She is actively involved in all aspects of her career: writing songs, and producing music and videos, where she is always involved in writing the screenplay as well as acting.

Goodbye First Love, now is available in some American movie theaters since April 20th. An acutely perceptive portrait of a bright young woman in the wake of her first romance. Fifteen-year-old Camille (Lola Créton) is a serious, intensely focused girl who has fallen in love with easy-going Sullivan (Sebastian Urzendowsky), an older boy who reciprocates her feelings, mostly, but wants to be free to explore the world. When he leaves her to travel through South America, she is devastated. But over the next eight years, she develops into a more fully formed woman, with new interests and a new love—and the possibility that she’ll be less defenseless when Sullivan enters her life again. Rendering scenes that showcase her extraordinary ability to evoke moods and feelings, Hansen-Løve takes the story of a girl’s first romance and makes it into a singular experience, familiar in its broad strokes and yet so specific that it feels uniquely personal.
This movie reminds me my first relationship, my first kisses and heartbreaks. Besides, the beauty of the language, the cities, the countryside make this movie magical and realistic so It goes far beyond that, and all the emotional echoes of those moments will last for long after the relationship itself is over. However, all the heightened emotions that come with love. The fear of being rejected and abandoned is very real and must be acknowledged. It is a well structured and meaningful love movie that gives us the freedom to be who we are, loving others for who they are. In few words, when you really love deeply in one direction makes you more loving in all others. Life is full of pure love for all things that makes you capable of doing things that you consider part of your happiness.
