Mock Squid Soup Film Society-3 Clues!


I can't believe it is December. In my neck of the woods it has not been that cold and that's a bummer. I like a nice snowy day to put me in the Christmas spirit. I also wish to apologize to all my blogger friends whom I usually visit. I have been busy at work and at home. With Christmas approaching I am finding it tough to get to everyone's blogs and I feel bad about that. I hope to make it up in time.

Ok, over at Mock and The Armchair Squid, they have a monthly film society where a film is picked to review. This time, once again, we pick our own film and for this post we offer 3 clues. Next Friday the film will be revealed. Let's see if you guess the film I picked for this month. Venture over to see the other bloggers' clues.

here we go...

1. When I saw this film, it made me dream of going to Budapest (I did end up going!)

2. It won awards but one star broke his

3. It co-stars a famous mezzo soprano

Can you guess??

    1. Man, you're pitching a no-hitter! OK, second guess: Evita, filmed in Budapest. Madonna is the mezzo.

  2. Is the mezzo-soprano Jeanette MacDonald? I don't know the film, but the clues made me think of her.

  8. Again clueless but sounds intriguing :) I heard on the radio last night Buffalo New York set a record on lack of snowfall this year; good but bad I guess? Maybe you'll have a white Christmas :)

    1. We so rarely have a white Christmas which is a bummer. We did have one 2 yrs ago which was so pretty. I remember the one year, it was crisp and snowy from the beginning of December to 3 days before Christmas Eve. It suddenly got very warm and rained and by Christmas there was no snow left! That was just cruel:) I can recall that year, my mom and I went to a beautiful town near us, Niagara On The Lake. It was nice and cold and snow everywhere, the Christmas music was piped onto the streets-it was magic especially since I shared it with my mom

    1. Yes I went when I was 18 and the Iron Curtain was still up. Budapest is a beautiful city and let's just say I had an eye opening event happen to me when I was in no man's land waiting for them to clear our bus

  10. Let's see..."Fargo" is out. Okay, I give up.
    I, too, love the cold in December. It's SUPPOSED to be cold in December. It's also supposed to be cold in January and February, too. But, the heck with that!

    1. Fargo is a guess:) It's not the right one but it is a guess. I am wanting snow!

  11. I'm used to reading the comments and someone having guessed it correctly already. Or giving me a helpful clue. Nope, neither of those. I have no idea. But a trip to Budapest, now that I want to hear about.

    I, along with everyone else, am clueless and intrigued. I can't wait to see your review.

  20. We've had snow too, kind of surprising where I live, but I do love it, and of course you have to have snow for Christmas. I have no idea about the movie but like the setting.

    Merry Christmas, Birgit!

  24. I couldn't for the love of me guess what it is.

  25. No clue. I'm terrible at these kind of guessing games anyway, but I bet my hubby would have the answer.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Um, I have no clue. And it's tougher to visit blogs as the holidays approach. Plus, a lot of people go on blog hiatuses for the holidays. We can come back stronger in January. :)

  27. the first film that came to my mind was The Grand Budapest Hotel. I haven't seen it and don't know much about it, but I put on my Netflix list and keep putting other films over it.

    I doubt that this is the film--I'm thinking you're going back to an older film, but I have no idea. Now I'm going to look at the other comments to see what other guesses are.
