Director: Nora Ephron

"Julie & Julia," a new picture from Nora Ephron, the director of award-winning "Sleepless in Seattle" and the famous Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan comedy "You've got mail," is a film which can be called absolutely "conflict-less." Still, the lack of tension doesn't really harm the idea of the film. Calm and soft development of the action makes the viewer feel comfortable and relaxed while watching it, but you won't fall asleep out of boredom at the same time.

The movie tells us of a story of two Julies. The first one - Julia Child (Meryl Streep) who, while moving to Paris with her husband in the middle of the '50s, decides to take cooking classes, not even daring to think that this, at first, not a very serious occupation, will make her a world famous television cook and an author of the most popular cook book in America. And the second one 's Julie Powell (Amy Adams), who lives in present times and in a desperate attempt to change her life, decides to cook through Julia Child's cook book and to write a blog about it.

An absolutely terrific crew (with Meryl Streep starring and Amy Adams and Stanley Tucci co-staring), made a wonderful job and satisfied all possible expectations. Especially Meryl Streep (who, by definition, can set the tone of the whole movie) in the role of the over-emotional, but, nevertheless, hard-working, goal-oriented and incredibly charming Julia Child.

The wonderful streets of New York and Paris, the classy music from the '50s, all in this movie creates an atmosphere of a sweet home. By the way, food plays a huge role in film, too. All kinds of delicious-looking meals will be shown in all their glory, so you will probably be starving after the film.
So, if you are looking for something soft, cute, and not serious, "Julie and Julia" is a movie made for you 's not "spice," nor too "sugary," it is a wonderful journey in the land of cookery.
