Trotz oder wegen der Berichterstattung in den Medien ist für uns das Verständnis der arabische Kultur von Vorurteilen geprägt und verfälscht. Mit ihrem neuen Album ´´Soul of Morocco´´ gewährt die marokkanische Sängerin Oum nicht nur einen Blick in ihre Seele sondern zeigt in musikalisch faszinierender Art und Weise, die Einflüsse, Strömungen aber auch traditionelle Verbundenheit einer neuen, jungen und liberalen arabischen Generation, die ihre kulturelle Identität ohne Rücksicht auf Konventionen oder religiöse Dogmen, aber sehr wohl im Bewusstsein der eigenen Kultur auslebt. Zusammen mit den musikalischen Zutaten aus aller Welt, wie Bossa Nova, kubanische Rhythmen, die sie oft in gleicher Weise auch in ihrer Kultur findet, und nicht zuletzt ihrer Band zu denen eine Reihe französischer Jazzmusiker sowie der in Frankreich lebende marokkanische Perkussionist Adhil Mirghani (Derbouka) und der Out-Virtuos Yassir Rami gehören kreiert Oum ein neues Bild der Marokkanischen Seele, die in einer vorurteilsfreien Welt einfach als grandiose Musik bezeichnet werden würde. In unserer heutigen Zeit ist ihr bislang modernstes Album das starke Statement einer selbstbewussten jungen Frau, dass die Seele Marokkos als Teil unserer universellen Kultur beschreibt.

The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the accident at Bennington, the two friends - once inseparable roommates - haven´t spoken in over a year. But there Lucy was, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy - always fearless and independent - helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country. But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice - she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice´s husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind. Tangerine is a sharp dagger of an audiobook - a debut so tightly wound, so replete with exotic imagery and charm, so full of precise details and extraordinary craftsmanship, it will leave you absolutely breathless.

How can I laud this film I liked so much, and enjoyed? Let me try a number of ways. For this is a movie that asks for many things of its audience. This film is a work of art. Called the wisest philosopher among painters, ´´Pieter Bruegel’s epic masterpiece ´´The Way To Calvary´´ depicts the story of Christ’s Passion set in Flanders under brutal Spanish occupation in the year 1564, the very year Bruegel created his painting. From among the more than 500 figures that fill Bruegel’s remarkable canvas, The Mill & The Cross focuses on a dozen characters whose life stories unfold and intertwine in a panoramic landscape populated by villagers and red-caped horsemen. Among them are Bruegel himself (played by Rutger Hauer), his friend and art collector Nicholas Jonghelinck (Michael York), and the Virgin Mary (Charlotte Rampling).” So says the distributor about the film they distribute, Kino Loberer of New York City. Before going further with some remarks on the film as a work itself and its credits, note that the part played by Rutger Hauer is done with dignity and offers a stoic painterly attitude of heroic disengagement with the large scene he paints. A handsome man, the character played by Rutger Hauer, Bruegel himself does as the other actors do: plays the role with a balance of speaking and silence, with emphasis on the silence. Quiet in dialogue, that is silent moments, is a notable feature of the playing style in The Mill & The Cross. Here is a well chosen means of conveying meaning as audience members become attuned to the rhythm of acting style performed by not only this excellent player, but all the competent and experienced main players in their parts. There is a shadow and light to the acting sensibility, not in literal use of cinema and play of film, but a kind of sensibility of both knowing and not knowing. But it is Rutger Hauer’s character who appears as a man who has eyes to see and a distance in objectivity in min 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ralph Morocco.
