Lowcost flying on the movies

So… yesterday I lived one of those weird experiences that make you seriously question why on earth we should pay 8 euros to go to the cinema…

My best friend and I went to a small but modernized cinema yesterday to watch Keinohrhasen, which comes to be “A bunny with no ears”, a german romantic comedy. Everything was going fine until we sat down on our seats, when we realised that going o the cinema is not what it used to be.

First, there was the space between the rows… far too small for my taste (and I’m considerably short) Flying with Easyjet means more space between your legs and the seat before you!!! The guy besides us didn’t know where to put his jacket in such a little space. Thank the Lord we where on the leaning seats, cause otherwise I don’t know how we would have lasted. I can’t begin to imagine the constriction the first and not leaned 10 rows felt during the film… But that was not the only thing… Then there were the armrests too… teeny, tiny. No way could two arms rest on them. Seriously, you can’t comprehend to have such a small space to fit in on a cinema.

And so… I can’t help but wonder what on earth where the architects thinking!!!!??? Cause seriously, the good thing about small cinemas, is precisely the fact that even though they are small, they are comfortable, and very cozy to be in. Not tinned-sardines-look-a-like, for God sake! I understand the need to modernize them in order to gain seats, and therefore, profitability… but this was beyond tolerable. No space to stretch or cross your legs, or anything for that matter… GROSS, and EXPENSIVE.

Anyway… on with the good part, the film. Quite cute, and funny, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Avoiding a couple of quite estrange scenes (we’ll just skip them as part of the German idiosyncrasy), a nice thing to watch altogether.

Synopsis, for all of you to consider: Rainbow press reporter Ludo is sentenced to 8 months, but is released on probation. But he has to work 300 hours for a local daycare center and meets Anna who has unfinished business with him.
