Lion

My sister and I went to see the film Lion this week. It’s the true story of a five-year-old boy, Saroo, who is separated from his family at the Khandwa train station in India. He falls asleep in a train car and travels 1500km to land up in Calcutta where he survives for weeks on his own. Then by some miracle, he is adopted by an Australian couple and begins his new life in Tasmania. Twenty-five years later, the grown up Saroo starts having flashbacks about where he really comes from and embarks on a mission, with the help of Google Earth, to find his birth mother.

Deutschland 83

I’ve recently come across a German television series (on M-Net of all places) called Deutschland 83. I’m intrigued by the fact that M-Net is showing a German language series (in German with English subtitles) on prime time Saturday night television. Well, I’m now 4 episodes in and completely hooked. If you like foreign films and TV series, I highly suggest giving Deutschland 83 a watch.
