Last week I was a bit depressed because of the referendum results, but now I feel less bitter. On the one hand, I am worried about what the President might do with all the power in his hands, but on the other, I am happy that there is no one else he can blame from now on for all the problems in the country, except himself. The new constitution should come into force in 2019 but who knows what will happen in the meantime.
Anyways since I am back, please check my weekly suggestions:
TV Series: The Good Fight
This is a story of 3 female lawyers at different levels who try to make a living despite all the barriers they face. I think this is the most feminist TV series I have seen in years.
Movie: A Teströl és Lélekröl (On Body and Soul)
I will be honest, I was so tired when I started watching this movie, and I slept for almost half of it. I opened my eyes the first second I heard my favorite Laura Marling song “What he wrote” playing.
The movie is about an extraordinary love story. An anti-social woman falls in love with a colleague with who she has the same dream every night. It is based on the duality of sleep and being awake. The movie won the Golden Bear Award this year at Berlinale. So, it is certainly worth checking out.
Book: Onu buraya ben koydum- Ceyda Günalp
The author of this book is a young woman whom I met for ProjectPost30. When you look at the cover, you may think that it is a children’s book, but it is certainly not. A truly fascinating Little Prince kind of story. And it is one of the most amazing books I have read all my life. I recommend this to anyone who wants to keep the child in them alive.
Did you know that the word school comes from the Greek word schole? And that it means “free/leisure time”?
Place to be: Cafe TuinFeest- Amsterdam
I stumbled into this pub on a Sunday night. The atmosphere is pretty cozy and staff is super friendly. Plus, they play 90s pop all night long. What else would you expect from a Sunday night?
