Berlinale Grey

Just a quick post to report that The Director and I have decided: this is simply not an inspired year for the Berlinale. I say that 2009 was such a fabulous year in film that it's simply too much to hope for a repeat.
He doesn't agree that this is impossible, which I suppose makes him more of an optimist (who on earth would have thought)! The only film I can actually say that I thought was good so far, a full week into the Berlinale, is Bibliotheque Pascal. There are others, which I'll quickly write up later, that had some issues but were still worth seeing but I am simply not inspired. Berlin is grey, as it must be at this time of year, and the Berlinale even more so. But even so, it's good to be home.
