Luísa Sobral at Musikens Hus....

Luísa and Mário Delgado, Musikens Hus, Mars, 17

The ability of becoming the seventh string of the guitar is not for everyone, and the fusion between voice and music becomes delightful.

Best in show: "Janie"

Lady Bird....

Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf

College, sex, family, swinging doors and opportunities....and the "wrong side of the tracks". The "american" theme is by now nearly exhausted - but not really in Greta Gerwig`s film. There is an extra touch of sensitivity throughout the story, a truly delicate feminine touch. And of course....Saoirse Ronan gets to the core of the american soul, and she does it with talent.

Ana Moura...

With a new record and on the road again. "Desamparo" is a brilliant song....and she can really sing from the heart.

The portuguese destructive methodology for classified areas....

The gardens of palacete Mendonça in Lisbon, April 2017

..and today.

The gardens are classified (protected by law), yet the trees were mutilated by the converging incompetence of authorities, owners, builders, etc. Unfortunately, not an isolated example, but more or less the "modus operandi" that slowly (but firmly) is destroying the character and authenticity of the city of Lisbon.

Viskningar och rop....

Nykvist, Bergman, Thulin and Ullmann

Whispers and shouts and not "Cries and Whispers" 
Sussurros e gritos e não "Lágrimas e suspiros"

Another goodbye among Lisbon's historic shops....

The bookshop Aillaud & Lellos at Rua do Carmo, 82, opened the doors in 1931 and closed definitely in december 2017. New attractions for tourists are to be expected.

He sold one (!) painting....

Arles, 1888

..during his lifetime !?
