Post-war provincial Iceland: around 1950, Freyja, who'd been a plump teen, returns from America, a widow with a 20-inch waist, seven suitcases of dresses, and a list of who ever wronged or slighted her. She moves in with an aunt and socialist uncle: finding a new husband is high on her agenda, and she's mistrusted by Agga, a pre-teen who's our eyes and ears. The social order and Freyja are more complicated than they seem at first, and so may be her prospects. Class divisions, families ties, pride, the onset of puberty, and the power of Eros sliver the ice.

David F (ca) wrote: This is a great documentary about America's love of violence, from gun violence to ICBM violence. And very funny as well, like all Michael Moore movies.

Steph O (nl) wrote: One of the most beautiful, sad, touching, heart-wrenching romance movies I have ever seen. It is a masterpiece. Based on the book of the same name written by E.M. Forster in 1913 (but not published until 1971), "Maurice" tells the story of the two loves of Maurice Hall's live. Clive (Hugh Grant) and Alec (Rupert Graves). Maurice meets Clive while attending Cambridge University, but they live in a time where homosexual acts (even just kissing another man) will almost certainly lead to imprisonment. As Maurice grows older he tries to repress his homosexuality, as his former lover Clive has apparently done. But when Maurice meets Alec later in the film, his entire world changes. I could write about this movie forever, but all I really need to say it that "Maurice" is a beautiful love story and even if you're a bit iffy about 'gay-movies' (which you really shouldn't be, they are amazing) you should definitely watch "Maurice". Unfortunately it isn't available on DVD in Australia but it's practically everywhere online, and is really worth watching.
