I didn’t believe in ghosts for a long period of time. Well, I liked to watch movies about spirits and ghosts when I was a little girl. I was captivated by ghost stories. I mean there are so many different stories in pop culture referring to scary and captivating stories about paranormal phenomena. Anyway for me ghosts were not actual. Those stories are breathtaking, sometimes they are even romantic. But I didn’t believe they happened to people. My favorite one is Ghost (1990) by Jerry Zucker. To tell the truth I have never thought seriously about ghosts. “They are unreal and fictional”, I thought. But once I changed my mind. In summer 2010 I decided to spend my vacations along with my friends in North Carolina. It is wonderful place indeed to have a rest and have fun. We decided to rent a house in Southern Shores. There were four of us: Tim, Jessica, Robert and me. We are college friends. So we found a house not far from the seashore and moved in. We wanted to stay over there about ten days. The weather was wonderful, the place was beautiful. Everything seemed to be perfect except the house. Well, it was fine as well but it was pretty old. My friends also didn’t believe in ghosts. But we changed our minds. For the first several days everything was fine. On the third day I heard footsteps downstairs. Well, actually guys went to swim at the time. I decided not to pay much attention to it. Then I heard it once again. I decided to wait for my friends outside. I didn’t tell my friends anything. But next night Jessica was frightened to death. She saw an image of a little girl who was wandering around the room and laughing. Jessica was screaming out. It was terrible. We decided to leave the house immediately. Well, it was strange and terrifying. I still doubt whether it was true or not. And who was that little girl…

The most common question asked by the bird lovers concerns the age and gender of a parrot. But such problem is typical not only of the people who only plan to buy a parrot but also of the owners of a bird.

The most popular way to distinguish a male parrot from the female one is to examine the cere. Its is considered that a boy has a blue cere and a girl has a brown one. But even the specialists sometimes can say for sure if the parrot is male or female only by looking at its cere. The problem is that the cere of the young species is almost always the grayish purple one as the parrots in their young age lack the gonadal hormones.

The Cannes International Film Festival came to an end. Finally we know winners. And it seems like all of them deserved the awards they got. Some movies are really worth seeing, some seem to be quite controversial. Anyway I would like to share the films that are worth paying attention to.

To tell the truth I’m not big fan of Michael Haneke’s films. Well, it is just not my scene. But this time I was amazed and impressed deeply. Love by Michael Haneke won the Palme d’Or. The story of the film depicts relations between two elderly people, both music teachers, Anne and Georges. Anne suffered a stroke, she is paralyzed. Georges looks after her. The story is so real and convincing. You never know what may happen to you and to those you love. It is even terrible to think about. The film is moving and emotional. One may recognize Haneke’s style even though it seems like it is not the theme that would attract him. Well, sometimes we are wrong.

It becomes pretty boring to make a proposal asking, “Will you marry me?” Many think so and exactly that’s why many try to make a very special and unusual proposals to surprise their brides-to-be. That’s wonderful indeed but at the same time it happens quite often that an unusual proposal may turn into something absolutely different and unexpected and even in a tragedy. I even do not know why it may happen. May be because a groom is too excited and worries about or may be it is just their fate. Who knows…

Which movie can be more touching than the one telling the story of some wild animal or pet who overcomes all difficulties and ordeals provided by the cruel world of people and shows a touching example of loyalty to his owner or friend? Personally I can’t think of any plot which can be compared with these touching stories. Such films remind us that we should treat the animals without cruelty and that the world of nature can teach us something, like being loyal, friendly and strong.

The animal film character I like most is Uggie, the terrier of Jack Russel in the Oscar-awarded film “Artist”. This dog performed so wonderful in this mute movie that the audience considered him to be one of the main characters of the story and expressed even the opinion that Uggie should participate in the Academy Awards 2012 as an actor. The fate of Uggie in real life, however, was not always that cloudless. His owners rejected him for being uncontrolled and wild. A famous dog trainer Omar von Muller has found him somewhere in Florida and used the dog’s energy for creative purposes. Uggie’s first role was in the movie “Water for Elephants” where he played a circus pooch. However, it was the role in the “Artist” which has brought him a real fame. Nowadays Uggie even has his own twitter account.
