Asia Filmfest - My Blueberry Nights

Today my brother showed up surprisingly. So he had to take care of the kids and we had the chance to go and see another Asia Filmfest movie. Today they showed the "surpise movie". We were lucky. They showed "My Blueberry Nights" directed by Wong Kar Wai.

"My Blueberry Nights is a film starring Norah Jones and Jude Law. It also features Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman and David Strathairn. Wong Kar Wai describes it as "a story of a woman who takes the long route instead of the short one to meet up with the man she loves."

A young woman takes a journey across the
United States to resolve her questions about love. She encounters a series of offbeat characters along the way.

The movie was the opening film for the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. It is Kar Wai Wong's first feature length English-language film.
Norah Jones was the only choice for the leading role, despite her lack of prior acting experience actually it was her film debut.

Sounds like a great film. But what about the brother? He comes for a visit and you guys scamper away? Oh well, that's what siblings are for right?

@mim: actually he came with us to munich as he knew that we would like to see more movies at the asian filmfest. it was voluntarily. :) and usually when we come back home it is time for him to go out. so it´s perfect to meet some nice munich girls. ;)

@I.Lebowski: i think both of them look quite different. the dark haired one in the last picture is norah jones (great singer) and the blonde one is Natalie Portman (good actress). which one were you talking about? i don´t see any similarity to angelina jolie.
