Why I hate the cinemas in my country..

Friday, July 1, 2011

While every movie-lover has seen, loved and reviewed 'The Tree of Life', it's not unlikely that I won't see it on the big screen, ever! From the first time (and the 2nd and 3rd and 729th) I couldn't wait for the day it would hit the theaters. For my main reasons click here.
Since the cinemas here only show the big Hollywood pictures, I seriously doubted whether 'The Tree of Life' would make it. May 27th arrived (maybe they're just a bit late), June 3rd passed (maybe they're just a little later), May 10th passed (maybe they're really late). I checked the schedule again on May 24th but no luck again. I call the office, suggest, plead, beg even, but they've never even heard of the movie -_-
Daily I check the torrent sites, but it's taking its sweet time to appear on the illegal side of movie-watching. Maybe they'll still show it in theaters when I move to Europe in 3 weeks. Wishful thinking, it's all I have left.
My fellow bloggers have been oh so positive about this movie and the majority seems to think it'll be a big hit at next year's Acadmey Awards. It's so strange, without even having seen this movie I already know I'll love it. It may take some time until I finally see it, but I know it'll be worth the wait!

Sorry to hear that you don't have an opportunity to watch it now.

I read your review and like many others you were moved by it. This caused my expectations and impatience to rise even further. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Europe!

Even though the cinema in the town where I live has long since been converted into a nightclub I'm lucky that I'm only 20 minutes away from Manchester so I've always got plenty of choice if a new release takes my fancy.
Good luck with your move:)
