Film Festival 2013 Day 4: Fortune favors the bold… or does it?

Another exciting film festival day went by. For me, it started off with an almost overwhelming depiction of Alexander the Great‘s life (Alexander), went on to a cozy restaurant in Belgium (Brasserie Romantiek), stopped by a puzzled ordinary man who won the lottery (Millions), spend 90 minutes in a nearly abandoned little town (Blackbird) and ended with two striking characters (Max and Bobo).

Alexander the Great firmly believed that fortune favors the bold… If it does, to which extent? And what does boldness really mean and imply? Is it to persist at any cost and follow your dreams no matter how self-destructive they become? Is it to finally take the plunge in a new phase of life leaving all disappointments, but also loved ones, behind?

My personal favorites (and clear recommendations) are Brasserie Romantiek and Max and Bobo. I guarantee they will go under your skin in no time and make you laugh and cry… perhaps even at the same time. But there is something bigger beyond the emotions they evoke. It’s their potential to bring about change for the better – in thinking, attitude, midset… in us.
