    These adventure video clips are really awesome and thanks for sharing. The fire looks very dangerous and very difficult to bear the heat. It is really a dangerous, grimy and noxious job.
    Best Regards,

    At time of writing, it has already won a golden globe (Portman, best actress) and has been nominated for similar awards at the Oscars. I find it quite annoying that the cardboard cutout of a film behind the lead actress is completely ignored because Natalie Portman acted well.
