The Odd Couple (play)
The Odd Couple is a play by Neil Simon. Following its premiere on Broadway in 1965, the characters were revived in a successful 1968 film and 1970s television series, as well as several other derivative works and spin-offs; the plot concerns two mismatched roommates: the neat, uptight Felix Ungar and the slovenly, easygoing Oscar Madison. Simon adapted the play in 1985 to feature a pair of female roommates in The Female Odd Couple. An updated version of the 1965 show appeared in 2002 with the title Oscar and Felix: A New Look at the Odd Couple. Sources vary as to the origins of the play. In The Washington Post's obituary of Simon's brother Danny, a television writer, Adam Bernstein wrote that the idea for the play came from his divorce. "Mr. Simon had moved in with a newly single theatrical agent named Roy Gerber in Hollywood, they invited friends over one night. Mr. Simon botched the pot roast; the next day, Gerber told him: "Sweetheart, a lovely dinner last night. What are we going to have tonight?"
Mr. Simon replied: "What do you mean, cook you dinner? You never take me out to dinner. You never bring me flowers." Danny Simon wrote a partial first draft of the play, but handed over the idea to Neil. However, in the Mel Brooks biography It's Good to Be the King, author James Robert Parish claims that the play came about after Simon observed Brooks, in a separation from his first wife, living with writer Speed Vogel for three months. Vogel wrote that Brooks had insomnia, "a brushstroke of paranoia", "a blood-sugar problem that kept us a scintilla away from insanity". Simon credited Boston critic Elliot Norton with helping him develop the final act of the play. Norton practiced drama criticism when the relationship between the regional critic and playwrights whose shows were undergoing tryouts in their towns were not as adversarial as they were to become. Appearing on the public television show Eliott Norton Reviews, during Simon's conversation with the critic, Norton said that the play went "flat" in its final act.
As it appeared in Boston, the characters the Pigeon Sisters did not appear in the final act. Simon told The Boston Globe: He invited one of the stars and the writer, he loved the play and gave it a wonderful review but he said the third act was lacking something. On the show he said,'You know who I missed in the third act was the Pigeon Sisters,' and it was like a light bulb went off in my head, it made an enormous difference in the play. I rewrote it and it worked well. I was so grateful to Elliot... Elliot had such a keen eye. I don't know if he saved the play or not. Felix Ungar, a neurotic, neat freak news writer, is thrown out by his wife, moves in with his friend Oscar Madison, a slovenly sportswriter. Despite Oscar's problems – careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food – he seems to enjoy life. Felix, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out his own and other people's mistakes and foibles; when he tries to do so in a gentle and constructive way, his corrections and suggestions prove annoying to those around him.
Oscar, his closest friend, feels compelled to throw him out after only a brief time together, though he realizes that Felix has had a positive effect on him. The play and the film both spell Felix's name Ungar. Oscar Madison: A slovenly divorced sportswriter. Felix Ungar: A fastidious, hypochondriac news-writer whose marriage is ending. Murray: A NYPD policeman, one of Oscar and Felix's poker buddies. Speed: One of the poker buddies. Gruff and sarcastic picking on Vinnie and Murray. Vinnie: One of the poker buddies. Vinnie is henpecked, making him an easy target for Speed's verbal barbs. Roy: One of the poker buddies. Oscar's accountant. Roy is less acerbic than Speed. Cecily and Gwendolyn Pigeon: Oscar and Felix's giggly upstairs neighbors, a pair of English sisters; the former is the latter a widow. The Odd Couple premiered on Broadway at the Plymouth Theatre on March 10, 1965 and transferred to the Eugene O'Neill Theatre where it closed on July 2, 1967 after 964 performances and two previews. Directed by Mike Nichols, the cast starred Walter Matthau as Oscar Madison and Art Carney as Felix Ungar.
The production gained Tony Awards for Walter Matthau, Best Actor, Best Author, Best Direction of a Play, Best Scenic Design, was nominated for Best Play. Matthau was replaced with Jack Klugman, starting in November 1965 and Pat Hingle, starting in February 1966. Carney was replaced with Eddie Bracken starting in October 1965 and Paul Dooley. In 1968, James Wheaton directed an all black version of the show at the Ebony Showcase Theatre in Los Angeles; the production starred Morris Erby. The cast included Larry McCormick in his acting debut. In 1970, the McMaster Shakespearean Players performed The Odd Couple with Martin Short as Felix, Eugene Levy as Oscar, Dave Thomas as Murray – before any of these performers were famous. In 1989, Ronald Harwood directed a production at the Royal Exchange, Manchester with Derek Griffiths as Oscar and Sam Kelly as Felix. In 1994, a version of the play moved to Glasgow and toured Scotland, starring Gerard Kelly as Felix, Craig Ferguson as Oscar and Kate Anthony as Gwendolyn Pigeon.
Kelly reprised the role of Felix opposite Andy Gray. In 1996, Klugman and Tony Randall reprised their roles from the TV series for a three-month run at the Theatre Royal in Haymarket, London; the production was an effort to raise money to support Randall's National Actors
The Secret in Their Eyes
The Secret in Their Eyes is a 2009 crime drama film directed, co-written and edited by Juan José Campanella, based on the novel La pregunta de sus ojos by Eduardo Sacheri, who co-wrote the screenplay. The film is a joint production of Spanish companies. Using a nonlinear narrative, the film depicts a judiciary employee and his boss, a law clerk, in 1974, played by Ricardo Darín and Soledad Villamil, as they investigate a rape and murder case, while following the characters 25 years reminiscing over the case and unearthing the buried romance between them; the film received awards in both Hollywood and Spain, notably the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 82nd Academy Awards, making Argentina, with 1985's The Official Story, the first country in Latin America to win it twice. Three weeks before, it had received the Spanish equivalent with the Goya Award for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film. At the time of its release, it became the second highest-grossing film in Argentine history, surpassed only by 1975's Nazareno Cruz and the Wolf.
In a 2016 poll of international critics for the BBC's 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century this was voted one of the 100 greatest motion pictures since 2000. In 1999, Benjamín Espósito, a retired judiciary agent, decides to write a novel about a murder that happened in 1974, in which he was involved. A flashback starts. In June 1974, Espósito starts investigating the murder of young Liliana Colotto de Morales, brutally raped and murdered in her home in Buenos Aires City, her now-widower Ricardo Morales is devastated by the news. Espósito is helped by his alcoholic assistant and friend Pablo Sandóval and the newly arrived Irene Menéndez-Hastings, a high-class young woman and the new department chief. Romano, Espósito’s rival, accuses two immigrant workers to get rid of the affair, which angers Espósito upon discovering that both of them were tortured to obtain a confession. Espósito confronts Romano in a fit of rage. Espósito finds a lead while watching old photos of the murdered young woman, which Morales gave him: many of them featured a man, identified as Isidoro Gómez, staring at the victim suspiciously.
Espósito investigates Gómez and discovers that he lives and works in Buenos Aires City, but is unable to locate him. Espósito and Sandóval sneak into Gómez’s mother’s house in Chivilcoy, where both Gómez and the victim were born. During the break-in, they found some letters from Gómez to his mother. Sandóval steals them and Espósito finds out after returning to Buenos Aires. Back in Buenos Aires, their "visit" only causes them trouble with their higher-ups, they are unable to find any evidence in the letters. Besides, Gómez is still on the loose due to a careless phone call from Morales to Gómez’s mother, in a desperate quest for his wife’s killer. After all the events, the young woman’s murder investigation is closed. A while in 1975, Espósito finds Morales in a train station in Retiro and discovers that he was trying to find Gómez in multiple stations. Moved by Morales’ determination and love for his late wife, Espósito manages to convince Menéndez of reopening the investigation. Meanwhile, while getting drunk in a bar, Sandóval makes a discovery: an acquaintance of his identifies several names on the letters –seemingly without any connection– as footballers of Racing Football Club.
After identifying him as a Racing fan, Espósito and Sandóval attend to a game between Racing and Huracán, with hopes of finding Gómez. While keeping an eye on the game’s attendees in Huracán’s stadium, Espósito and Sandóval locate Gómez among the crowd, but a sudden goal causes a hubbab and allows Gómez to flee. A chase ensues and Gómez escapes, but accidentally gets into the field and is caught by the stadium’s security guards. Espósito and Menéndez grill him illegally, with Menéndez making Gómez confess after hurting his male pride. Gómez is tried and sentenced, but Romano bails him out one month and hires him as a hitman for the right-wing faction of the Peronist Party in order to get revenge on Espósito. Espósito and Menéndez are stopped by Romano's intervention. Espósito is given the hard task of informing Morales that his wife’s killer will be still on the loose, devastating the man further. Weeks after, Sandóval gets drunk and fights with another man in the bar he frequents, causing Espósito to take him to his flat and fetch his wife.
When Espósito comes back with Sandóval’s wife, they find the door pried open, his pictures flipped over and Sandóval shot dead in his room. Espósito soon concludes that Romano sent hitmen after him but Sandóval impersonated him to protect his friend. Fearing for his life, Espósito is forced into exile for ten years in the Jujuy Province with Menéndez’s cousins to avoid Romano’s hitmen. Espósito returns to Buenos Aires in 1985 to find Gómez missing, Romano murdered during the National Reorganization Process and Menéndez married with two children. Back in 1999, Benjamín Espósito tries to make sense out of the case and visits Ricardo Morales, who moved in 1975 to an isolated cottage in a rural area of the Buenos Aires Province. During the visit, both discuss several events of the case, but Ricardo loses control when Benjamín asks him how he coped with his wife’s death and the unfair end of the investigation, since Isidoro was never to be seen again after becoming part of Isabel Perón’s security detail.
Ricardo tells Benjamín that he was able to kidnap Isidoro and shoot him dead in his car’s trunk, Benjamín leaves. However, after deep thoughts, Benjamín stops his car and drives back to Ricardo’s house, remembering what Pablo Sandóval told him: “No one can change their
Kamchatka is a 2002 Argentine-Spanish historical drama film directed by Marcelo Piñeyro and written by Piñeyro and Marcelo Figueras. It stars Cecilia Roth, Tomás Fonzi, Héctor Alterio and Leticia Bredice; the story is set in Argentina in the 1970s, during the country's last civil-military dictatorship, chronicles the life of a family hiding from the military government in rural Argentina. Kamchatka was Argentina's official submission for the 2002 Oscar Awards in the foreign language film category; the film is seen through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy, who does not know that Argentina's 1976 coup d'état is impacting his life. After witnessing the "disappearance" of dissident friends, a human rights lawyer and his research scientist wife flee the city and hide from the military police in a vacant summer house. With them are their two kids: Harry, fascinated with the escape artistry of Harry Houdini, El Enano, his little brother; the family adopts new attempts to lead a normal life. They are joined by a student, using the alias Lucas.
Their new life is difficult, but a visit with their estranged grandparents reveals that they are still a close-knit family. Subtly hinted and used as a metaphor, is the mother's constant smoking and El Enano's renewed bed-wetting. Both serve to show how precarious their situation is. Ricardo Darín as Dad, David Vincent Cecilia Roth as Mom Matías Del Pozo as Harry Milton De La Canal as Simón, El Enano Héctor Alterio as Grandfather Fernanda Mistral as Grandmother Tomás Fonzi as Lucas Leticia Bredice as Teacher Mónica Scapparone as Bertuccio's Mother Evelyn Dominguez as Niña Morena Maria Socas as Mom's Friend Nicolás Cantafio as Bertuccio Gabriel Galíndez as Military Guard Juan Carrasco as Priest Demián Bugallo as School Mate Oscar Ferrigno Jr. as Father Juan Alberto Silva The film is based on the real-life political events that took place in Argentina after Jorge Rafael Videla's reactionary military junta assumed power on March 24, 1976. During the junta's rule: the parliament was suspended, political parties and provincial governments were banned, in what became known as the Dirty War, between 9,000 and 30,000 people deemed left-wing "subversives" disappeared from society.
According to the Internet Movie Database, the screenplay was written by Marcelo Figueras, based on an original story written by Figueras and Marcelo Piñeyro. When the time for the nominations came, the Argentine Film Critics Association credited the authorship of the final script to both of them; the title refers to the Russian northeastern state, which, in the movie, is used by the family's father in the boardgame TEG as the ultimate stand-off, who uses it as his last resort to win. The title thus alludes to the family situation of hiding away from imminent peril as a final act of defiance before their ultimate downfall. Kamchatka is part of what can be considered a second group of films to be made in Argentina since the downfall of the Proceso dictatorship. Another film in the second group is Veronico Cruz; the first group, including such films as The Official Story, Night of the Pencils, Funny Dirty Little War dealt frankly with the repression, the tortures, the disappearances during the Dirty War.
This second group of films uses metaphor and suggestive images, hints at wider socio-political issues. In a review, critic Anji Milanovic called the film an "heartrending drama" and liked the look of the film, he wrote, "The cinematography is gorgeous, the Argentine countryside looks like a fairytale, all the more distressing given the killing and torture that occurred. The terror they feel is shown in little vignettes of family life."Film critic A. Fernandez-Santos, critic for the Spanish daily El País, wrote "Kamchatka has many features to be considered a masterpiece, it's cinema at its best, gifted with a great strength of emotional impact, it is a tender and touching elegy. Underneath the intense silent walls of captivity, it hides the thud and rage of the immeasurable collective tragedy."Mercedes Santos Moray, reporting from the Havana Film Festival, liked that director Piñeyro delivered in giving the audience a suggestive image of the tragic, historical events, wrote, "The painful memory is represented in an intimate way.
Piñeyro works both with the reason. His film is a metaphor about the dimensions of freedom; the people still suffer. There are only the phantoms of the past... A family in the film escape the repressions for a moment, but at last their lives are affected by the violent events." Wins Argentine Film Critics Association Awards: Silver Condor.

In 1969, at the age of three, Irène moved with her family to Geneva, where she became interested in the arts. My family was shy with feelings and never spoke about them, but we evolved a little bit. I think part of the reason I was attracted to theater was because I wanted to be close to stories because they could help me relate to my family. Jacob developed an interest in performing after seeing the films of Charlie Chaplin.
"They took my heart", she has recalled. "They made me laugh and cry, and, what I was waiting for in a film: to awaken me to my feelings."She made her stage debut in 1977 at the age of 11. She earned a degree in languages, she studied at the Drama Studio in London, England. In 1984, she moved to Paris. Jacob returned to Paris, where the 21-year-old drama student obtained her first film role in the Louis Malle film Au revoir les enfants, playing the part of a piano teacher, she followed her film debut with several French movies—mostly minor roles—over the next four years. Polish film director Krzysztof Kieślowski cast her in the lead role of his film The Double Life of Véronique, the allegorical story of two young women, one in Poland and the other in France, both of whom are played by Jacob. For her performance, Jacob won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. From 1992 to 1993, despite numerous offers from Hollywood that came in the wake of her success, including the lead role in Indecent Proposal, Jacob focused on smaller French films.

This was evident in her performance in Three Colors: Red, the third part of Kieślowski's trilogy. Jacob described her unique experience working with the Polish film director: The camera was like a microscope. Krzysztof was always close and precise in his directions, it was not something about beforehand.
He liked to rehearse just before a take. Her performance in Three Colors: Red gained huge international recognition, bringing further offers from major American motion-picture studios. Jacob retreated from public attention and took nine months off, spending most of her time reading Tolstoy, Balzac and several autobiographies.
