Peyton Place (1957)

The film is an exposé of the lives and loves of the residents of a small New England town, where scandal, homicide, suicide, incest and moral hypocrisy hide behind a tranquil façade.

Highly accomplished and influential moral drama with a mulit-layered plot, although the happy ending appears a bit construed.

Janneke Van Den Bosch

ph: Pierre dal Corso

Astérix aux jeux olympiques (2008)

Asterix and Obelix have to win the Olympic Games in order to help their friend Alafolix marry Princess Irin, otherwise promised to Caesar's son Brutus.

Silly, and only occasionally entertaining adaptation without any of the original comics' flair.
