Rassegna di cinema d’autore con Belfast

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 3 aprile 2022

Milano 4 aprile negli UCI Cinemas continua ESSAI. Rassegna di cinema d’autore, l’appuntamento settimanale del Circuito UCI pensato per tutti gli amanti dei film di qualità. Il protagonista di questa settimana è Belfast, il film scritto e diretto dal premio Oscar Kenneth Branagh e distribuito da Universal Pictures Ambientato nella capitale dell’Irlanda del Nord nel 1969, il lungometraggio racconta la storia di Buddy, un giovane che vive con la mamma e il fratello maggiore in un quartiere abitato da protestanti e da cattolici. Sono vicini di casa, amici, compagni di scuola, ma c’è chi li vorrebbe nemici giurati e getta letteralmente benzina sul fuoco, aizzando il conflitto religioso, distruggendo le finestre delle case e la pace della comunità. La famiglia di Buddy, protestante, si tiene fuori dai troubles, non cede alle lusinghe dei violenti e attende con ansia il ritorno quindicinale del padre da Londra, dove lavora come carpentiere. Emigrare è una tentazione, ma come lasciare l’amata Belfast, i nonni coi loro preziosi consigli di vita e d’amore, la bionda Catherine del primo banco?

Bookmaker: “Belfast” miglior film, “Drive my car” batte Sorrentino

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 7 gennaio 2022

Un solo rivale sulla strada tra Paolo Sorrentino e il Golden Globe al miglior film straniero. A pochi giorni dalla cerimonia che assegnerà i premi della stampa estera (in programma nella notte tra domenica e lunedì) il regista italiano sfida il giapponese Ryusuke Hamaguchi, che con “Drive My Car” guida le previsioni dei bookmaker: il riconoscimento al film che ha conquistato la critica si gioca a 1,48 su Planetwin365, con “È stata la mano di Dio” in seconda posizione a quota 3,40. Più lontani gli altri concorrenti: “Un eroe” dell’iraniano Farhadi è a 5, “Madres paralelas” di Almodovar vale 13, mentre il finlandese “Scompartimento n. 6” chiude a 19.Sfida a due anche per il miglior film drammatico: in questo caso è Belfast (a 1,90) a partire favorito su Stanleybet.it, seguito da “Il potere del cane” a 2,50 e da “Una famiglia vincente” a 5. Lontani invece “Dune” (16) e “CODA” (23). Tra i musical e le commedie vola “West side story” a 1,30, con “Licorice Pizza” a 3,00. Snobbato “Don’t look up”, solo a 16 alla pari con “Tick, Tick Boom”, “Cyrano” è ultimo a 26. Nette le scelte per i premi agli attori: tra i protagonisti maschili in film drammatici la strada è in discesa per Will Smith (“Una famiglia vincente”) a 1,47, mentre per i musical e commedie le preferenze vanno ad Andrew Garfield (“Tick, tick boom”) a 1,34. Kristen Stewart si prende la scena tra le attrici drammatiche, a 1,50 per “Spencer”, Rachel Zegler è invece la prima scelta per la categoria musical e commedie, a 1,65 con “West side story”. Unanime, infine, il giudizio per il miglior regista, con Jane Campion (“Il potere del cane”) che svetta tra 1,47 e 1,50, seguita da Kenneth Branagh (2,70, “Belfast”), Steven Spielberg (7,00, “West side story”), Denis Villeneuve (18 “Dune”) e Maggie Gyllenhaal (36, “The Lost Daughter”).

CIE Tours Cities on Travel Hotlist

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 2 aprile 2013

Dublin, PRNewswire The Beatles Story in Liverpool is one of the hottest visits on several CIE Tours’ programs TripAdvisor.com, the online travel site, surveyed users’ opinions and reviews in order to compile their cities hot list. Here they reviewed the up-and-coming, the unexpected, and the freshly updated among some lesser-known but still sparkling cities. Three United Kingdom cities – Glasgow, Belfast, and Liverpool – have been named among the top-ten trendy spots to set down your suitcase in Europe this year. All three of these cities have upgraded their attractiveness to travellers, and all have something unique to offer. Good luck for potential travellers, too: All three are amply covered in a wide range of tour offerings from CIE Tours International, the premier packager for holidays in Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. “We’re especially proud to say that we’ve known all along how special these cities are,” says CIE Tours president Brian W. Stack. “Our tours give visitors the very best of Liverpool, Glasgow and Belfast.” Take a CIE Tours’ trip that includes one or two of these cities, and you’ll understand their winning ways.
Liverpool: This Northern English birthplace of the Beatles always pleases. On a CIE Tours’ package, you’ll see the Fab Four’s favourite hangouts and special spots and also visit The Beatles Story, an attraction covering every aspect of their music.
Glasgow: A pedestrian-friendly city, Glasgow is an easy trip from its better-known Scottish sibling, Edinburgh. On a CIE Tour, you’ll hit the highlights, from the shopping and restaurant mecca of Sauchiehall Street to the fascinating newly-designed Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel, where you will marvel at all things with wheels and engines.
Belfast: In this Northern Ireland city, CIE Tours includes a trip to the amazing Titanic Belfast. This futuristic tourist attraction, which echoes the doomed White Star liner’s four hulls, is located on the same docks where Titanic itself was built.
