Hello there my lovelies,
Yesterday I went to the Latin Film Fest to see Tapas, a movie filmed in L'Hospitalet, a city outside of Barcelona I lived for about 5 months while I was in Spain.
It was nice sitting there with buttered popcorn and hot chocolate. The movie was wonderful. It brought back so many memories. On the screen I could see the streets I used to take walks on, bars I used to go to, stores I used to shop at and products I used during my time there. I miss Fanta and Cola Cao.
I saw a view of the city in the movie showing the apartment building I used to live in during a sunrise. I saw the highway that lead to the beach and airport. Whenever I passed by or was on that highway, I always fantasized about going to the beach and sitting in the sun, or going to the airport and flying home.
I loved watching the characters. I really miss the Spanish accent and their expressions. They cuss a lot, use vulgar language and I miss it. I missed hearing names and expressions that mainly belonged to people in or near Barcelona.
As I was watching the movie, many of the emotions I was going through while I was living there came back. I remember how bad I wanted to go home and how much I missed the USA.
American movies tend to differ from other foreign films. American movies tend to have a plot and a climax, and usually a happy ending. Foreign films, such as Tapas, tend to take a snapshot of someone's life and focus in on it, paying attention to detail.
Anyways, thats enough for now . Night Night.
