3 Movies for a Rainy Sunday

1. Ordinary boring quiet rain - What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

Small town America, family, loss and love - what more do you need when it is raining outside. Moreover, this film presents Johnny Depp, Juliette Lewis and Leonardo DiCaprio at their best, especially Leo shows us what he really means by acting here. I am not a big fan of American movies so you can imagine how much I like this piece if I recommend it.

2. Warm shower - Les Amours Imaginaires (2010)

A French-talking Canadian movie by an incredibly young talent, Xavier Dolan, who is also playing one of the leading roles in the film. He uses all the power that music can lend to a movie which results in an extremely powerful effect. You pay attention to every moment, every move and every grin on the face of the actors, and if you haven't heard about the Swedish band called The Knife so far, now you will surely make a search for them on Youtube. Must be one of the best films of 2010.

3. Raining all day long - Sibiriada (1979)

If you really get stuck in the house for the whole day then this is the time to play a long movie. With a runtime of 275 minutes this piece will keep you entertained all afternoon. Be careful, time passes by very slowly in the Russian far north but quickly indeed when you watch this film full of wonderful sceneries.
