Last TIFF ....
Last line up of TIFF and I'm back @AMC. What luck! We're ushered into a cinema to wait in what one TIFF volunteer calls a virtual line. Am early and nab a prime spot. Two seats down from me a moviegoer is serenaded by her partner. He sings "Happy Birthday" to her. A couple of other moviegoers join in. Seems tickets to TIFF were a birthday present. This afternoon's movie is Blood of My Blood. As we wait, a pair of moviegoers watch Sex in the City 2 on a smartphone. After a short wait, we're ushered into another cinema. The ritual jostling of seats begins, then everyone settles in for the movie.
Blood of My Blood was an interesting last film for me. Slow to start, but packs a huge emotional punch at the end. Lovely to see parts of Lisboa again.
