About a month or so ago (or longer? time flies…) I finally sat down and watched Mamma Mia with some friends… While some of the movie was a teeny bit silly (and for any super fans out there, please take note that I said “teeny”) and while Pierce Brosnan’s singing was very, shall we say, “average?” there were 2 extremely lovely & redeeming qualities about this movie (besides the sheer “funness” factor of it all …) First was Amanda Seyfried’s beautiful, beautiful voice that was as big and clear as her amazing eyes. Her versions of I Have A Dream & Thank You For The Music were by far the best songs in the movie…
But it should come to know surprise to those who know me well, that when I think of this movie, the thing I think about the most, the thing that enchanted me, and would cause me to give it a second, third and perhaps even a fourth look were the amazing, wonderfully, beautiful colors.. on everything from the walls, to the towels to the rugs….
Movies like this make me want to repaint every room in my house… The art directors on Mamma Mia struck the perfect balance between vibrant and faded;
Sun drenched and long shadows.
