    One of my all time favorites - Pedro Almodóvar's Hable con Ella (Talk to Her):

    "J'ai dit qu'il ne suffisait pas d'entendre la musique, mais qu'il fallait encore la voir" (Stravinsky)

    And another one of my very favorites: Wong Kar-Wai, In the Mood for Love:

    "J'ai dit qu'il ne suffisait pas d'entendre la musique, mais qu'il fallait encore la voir" (Stravinsky)

    Alma, have you watched Almodóvar's latest, La piel que habito? I still didn't have the time/disposition to do so and friends who did had such mixed opinions...
    Hable con ella is also my favorite Almodóvar. My favorite Kar-Wai, though, are 2046 and Happy together. Oh, and Ashes of time!

    My childhood favorite and the movie that taught me English.


    I still know the whole film by heart.

    Still one of my favourites and one of the few instances where I prefer the film to the book

    I've seen 2046, didn't like it as much as In the mood for love.
    Happy Together
    is excellent. Ashes of Time I haven't seen. Chungking Express is another one from him that I love. Plus many others, I've seen almost all his films, it may be that the only exception is Ashes of Time. No, I haven't seen La Piel que habito but the critics here say it's his second best film ever, after Hable con ella.

    One of my favourite movies would be Cyrano de Bergerac with Depardieu in title role. Magnificent film version of magnificent play by Edmond Rostand (it made me reach for original, French text of the play despite being unable to freely read it).

    This is one of most impressive scenes:

    I did and I love it!
    Yeah, it might be his second best movie as Alma said. I couldn't stop thinking about it for at least 10 days after I saw it. It had a tremendous impact on me. It's completely crazy, you must see it!

    YEAH :



    There's something special going on with smoking in most od movies with Delon. In Le Cercle Rouge he treats hiding criminal which he is smuggling with cigaratte and then locks him in car boot for futher travel, where he is going to burn it and spend hours of travel in reek. Probably lack of logic from scriptwriters, but it makes me laugh any time I remember it or watch the movie.

    Le Samouraï and mentioned Le Cercle are two really great French movies a'la movie noir. Very climatic, perfect to watch alone on some dark evening.
