Oh, don't get me started on films, that's all I do, I don't watch television. I could have a blog just for film reviews, but I won't ;)

I would love to live out my days writing & directing independent films and on top of all that creating soundtracks for each and every one of them! ~ Ah, the dreamer...

i concur - great movie!
french with subtitles.
favorite scene: walking the blind man across the street, describing everything, giving sight to his mind's eye.

the outtakes are also stunning!
(i think the DVD labels them as "fantasies.")

to Audry!
