In the late sixties the American Hollywood industry was in crisis; no matter how spectacular and glamorous the settings was, how popular the actors was or the size of the budget; they just could not make people come to the cinemas. Especially the young generation was letting the well known and well used genre movies of the time down, whose polished romantic and unambiguous view of life did not seem to resonate with the younger audience. But then came Bonnie and Clyde, a road movie about two young, wild bank robbers and their staggering, but short and violent life in the crisis stricken America of the thirties, a movie which became immensely popular at its time, and was the first sprout of a new cinema tradition of America.
On Saturday night we will together see this movie trying to recognize exactly what it was that made this movie in touch with its time, and maybe try to see if it still somehow resonates with out time today. The movie night is a part of English Corner; a chance for you to
practice your English skills in an international environment. Do not miss this chance. The movie night is free of charge, and it is possible to buy dinner in Nordica’s cafe.
Movie night Saturday the 9th of May, 8 pm.
