    It certainly is a great achievement to be able to sing at Carnegy Hall

    Very funny.

    Very cute. Disney movie about the South Sea islands and their inhabitants and their relationship with the sea.

  • Silence

    ★★½

    A long stretched out movie about forcing the catholic faith onto the Japanese. The mental agony this priest went through.

    I ended up liking this musical-movie.
    It's about a bitter-sweet love-affair.
