Here it is, the final official post of 2012 that will take this blog into 2013 with a bang. Or, hopefully without an actual bang but you know what I mean. Whilst this post is being prepared, basically a week before this will be read by the eyes of you, I’m already quite thrilled of how 2012 turned out.
This is quite the special moment for me, I’m reviewing this movie before it officially hits the cinemas on the 10th of August here in Estonia because I managed to drag myself to the Love Film Festival in Tartu called Tartuff. 2012 marked its seventh year and since I’ve missed out on some of the earlier years and last year, I thought it would be great to enjoy it this year as I’m leaving in weeks time.
Tartuff is an open air film festival, people are sitting in the chairs and on the ground, even in the rain since the screening of Moonrise Kingdom got a little wet with 10 minutes of rain – still an experience I fully enjoyed. I mean, thousands of people come together to watch a movie and they even endure the rain.. well at least most of them. In addition to that, the whole outdoors thing just makes the movie somehow better – no idea how but I guess the atmosphere and the context give a certain memorable extra something to the movie. Although Moonrise Kingdom is not the kind of movie that needs something extra special because it is just that on its own.
