This year has been a lot more predictable than the ethereal 2004 with several eagerly awaited titles. Unfortunately there aren’t any real surprises here, except that I actually liked Corpse Bride better than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. These are my nominees, including links to my reviews in Swedish:
Alone in Kyoto
"I tried my best to sneak across the building, but the floor revealed me each time. I suppose I would make a lousy ninja."
Greetings from Moldova
"But Chisinau is an unexpected gem in the wilderness. Even though Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe, the capital has its fair share of impressive buildings and post-Soviet architecture."
Having champagne in Champagne
"We roamed the damp and chilly tunnels and stumbled upon a large barrel delivered by Napoleon himself."
Good morning Montenegro
"One would almost think that all this secrecy was made on purpose to keep the hordes of tourists away. Let them all perish in the crowds of Dubrovnik while the people of Montenegro can enjoy their beautiful country on their own. Or something like that."
Memories of Skye
"The countryside is charming and some places even have coffee."
"The area contains 54 excavated bunkers along with gun emplacements, scattered around the town’s most visible landmark."
