    One of the finest actiondramas I have ever seen, fantastic directing by Nicolas Winding Refn and acting by Ryan Gosling. Looks and sounds great as well (wonderful score/soundtrack).

    @Friedrichstadtpalast, Berlin (OV, Berlinale)
    Not quite as good as the first one, but it's still fun to watch. Good action sequences, a few very nice ideas, and if you like Shah Rukh Khan, you'll like "Don2" anyway. I was a bit disappointed that this second installment of Don almost doesn't feel like a Bollywood movie at all.

    ★★★★½

    I watched "Jane Eyre" @ Kant Kino, Berlin, dubbed version
    Just when you thought that this "old story" couldn't get you excited anymore as you have already seen so many movie adaptions... Cary Fukunagas take on the Brontë classic is close to perfect. Touching, dramatic and modern. Loved it. Mia Wasikowska & Michael Fassbender are also very convincing!

    I watched "Take Shelter" @ CineStar SonyCenter, Berlin, OV
    Once more I was extremely impressed by the work of Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. I like the tone of the movie, slow paced and intense, and the fact that until the end it was unclear whether Shannons character was schizophrenic or had real visions.
