Hello, my beautiful Shades! ๐ŸŽ„

Another day, another Blogmas post! One of my favorite things about Christmas is how much everyone loves watching (and discussing!) good movies together.  So for any of you other movie lovers out there who have thought about spending some quality time in bed, our Christmas movie expert is here today to offer some great tips for an award-winning movie night that will be memorable. 

๐ŸŽฌ Cosy Dens (1998)

Cosy Dens is a bittersweet coming-of-age story set in the months from Christmas 1967 leading up to the ill-fated 1968 Prague Spring. The movie dramatizes the lives of two ideologically incompatible families living in the same apartment building and involuntarily sharing the same fate. The film gathered together many of the most popular contemporary Czech stars and became one of the greatest Czech movies. Why I love it? Cosy Dens are the representation of Czech humor. The humor is a mixture of not-too-corny slapstick and slightly cheesy one-liners that make the whole thing an altogether enjoyable watch. If the characters are sometimes predictable and the shots are sometimes all too common, it remains a nice testimony of its time. 

Funny fact: This movie is my absolute favorite, and if my dad would be a movie character, he would be definitely ล ebek, this man (or James Bond). ๐Ÿ˜€ 


๐ŸŽฌ Three Wishes for Cinderella (1973)

Cinderella is a young woman who is put upon by her stepmother and stepsisters. When the handsome prince comes knocking, Cinderella does not simply fall into his arms. In this version, he must actively pursue the young woman who is a skilled sharpshooter prone to wearing hunting outfits. Cinderella also has three wishes at her disposal, gained from three magic nuts. Why I love it? It's a movie of my childhood and favorite one of my sister. 

Funny fact: When I was a little girl, I used to play with my sister on Cinderella. I was Cinderellas' horse.  ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐ŸŽฌ Sun, Hay, and Strawberries (1983)

A Czech agricultural student, ล imon Plรกniฤka, arrives at the small South Bohemian town of Hoลกtice and joins the local JZD (agricultural co-op) with the intention of trying out his university experiment. He runs into difficulty with the directorship of the JZD, but he finds them eager to help once they hear he's the son of the local agricultural commissioner, as his last name is also Plรกniฤka. Blaลพena ล kopkovรก is given the task of finding out how things are looking. Why I love it? This movie is a play on the perceived stereotypes of daily life in a Czech village community, and it's hilarious. 

Funny fact: If my grannie would be a movie character, she would be definitely this priest. ๐Ÿ˜€
