MOVIE TOP LIST 4







Ok, Talking about Roberto Begnini, there is another GREAT movie I would like to
recommend you! 'Night on Earth' by Jim Jarmush. One of the early Roberto Begninis
and his part is definitely one of the most funny ones in the whole movie. There is also
a very young Winona Rider to be seen. I have enjoyed this movie already many times
over the years and still really like it and it still makes me laugh! so...enjoy!

FOCUS DRS3



Letzte Woche beim DRS3 hören habe ich Conradin Perner kennen gelernt.
Zuerst lauschte ich einfach Musik, bis plötzlich dieses Interview begann und
ich langsam aber sicher innehielt um bald gebannt zuzuhören. Was für eine
eindrückliche Geschichte, was für Weisheiten dieser Mann von sich gab.
Einfach so, ganz bescheiden und gut bündnerisch direkt. Unbedingt hinhören
- es lohnt sich wirklich.
