sorry to ask this here, but ...

Saqf said...

Thanks for the informative post. It was very nice seeing each movie's title along with a visual preview. It helps a lot in choosing the movie.

The official Goethe-Institute website -and all the other blogs that mentioned the event- didn't put any effort in promoting the movies and just settled for a quick "copy&paste" post.

I tried to look for any photo related to "The Extra Man", but absolutely nothing!

Thanks to Khobbeizeh's unique service. :)
