I don't even recall Jeux d'Enfants being particularily appealing visually so it's probably 95% Cotillard 5% everything else. Cotillard is great in the last Audiard though, Rust and Bone. Yeah, I remember hearing good things about La Moustache, I shall acquire.




If we include Belgian films, I'm gonna have to add Man Bites Dog obviously. That film had the most shocking posters, I still remember passing in front of them at the cinemas when the film was released. Not sure they'd get made today.

Still haven't seen any Dumont. Any opinion on Flandres/Hadjewijch/Hors Satan ?


I'd add Disneyland mon vieux pays natal to the list but there's like zero chance English-speaking folks will ever have access to it.

(I also don't speak French, which I think, for many non-speakers, might wipe away a lot of flaws from visually appealing films).

Yeah, The Moustache stars a Vincent, I'm pretty sure. I liked the book a lot, so I could be biased, but I see rotten tomatoes gave it a stellar score, so ... great premise, uneasy feels, good movie.

The moustache movie is as good as the book (Carrère directed the film himself), he's one of those writers that is both enjoyable and talented but that would make me think less of someone who named him as their favourite. His Limonov book is def good so if you liked La moustache go for this one.

Marion Cotillard is the most annoying person on earth or at least she's trying to be, Sipang is snorting the koolaid. I couldn't watch rust and bone because the mere thought of seeing 2 hrs of Cotillard tragically handicapped after an orca training incident and coming back to life and love through her contact with a young kick-boxer makes me want to go postal.

There's like near zero chance french speakers will get to see some Odoul or des Pallières but you should at least check out Adieu (desPallières) and Flandres (Dumont). I haven't see Hors Satan even though I have the dvd, should actually watch that.

Oh yeah the latest Ozon about the high school lit prof, his student and the family the later writes about is pretty funny and clever, not a masterpiece by any mean but def more solid than I expected.

I still wonder if this could be tied up in language, especially after seeing Dolce Vita again recently and being totally thrown off whenever that one American actor guy comes in and starts speaking English in that big stage-y voice and it's like, Whoah -- just another crap film from the 60s! -- and then he disappears, swallowed up by his fellow revelers, and things promptly restore to a dream world of magic. Marion Cotillard: could she live there?

Thanks, I'll check out his other book. That's an interesting comment about liking him, and being suspect all at once. laugh.gif

PS it's always interesting to hear what locals think (or do not think) about their lionized exports. I have certainly been guilty of grabbing foreigners by the lapels and shouting, Holy shit, such genius, how do you stand it!, only to be met with blank stares....much like a German exchange student I once met would walk around here pestering everyone about Holy shit, MARK TWAIN!, only to find no one really knew, or cared... musicboohoo[1].gif

I've liked Cotillard since Taxi ! She's very annoying sometimes, can't remember that film I saw recently , something from Canet I think.... Rust&Bone was ok, the story was ludicrous the acting kinda saves it (if you can stomach the actors that is). Feels like Audiard is getting a bit lazy though.


I have Adieu saved somewehre, need to find it. Curious about his new film with Mads Mikkelsen.

I don't care for Cotillard since she sold out
any self-respecting actor would avoid Dark Knight

Les petits mouchoirs? Probably the worst example of french filmmaking cliché (thirty something cool people with cool urban jobs who go on vacation and start whining, eating and fucking), roughly speaking the equivalent of the American blockbuster where the main character comes from a male adolescent fantasy even though he's a 35 y/o lawyer/cop or whatever (french cinema is so much more mature because it comes from a 30-something I don't shave and I have unrequited love for my female friends while I fuck some other chick, I'm like so sophisticated fantasy). I wish I could kill all the people involved.

That's the one, unbearable. Special mention to the old fisherman/noble savage guy + ending too.

there's actually a Thread of Ruins

have seen this one in sorrento, almost same shot since it's from an overpass or bridge looking down on it if i recall ... kinda surreal to look down and see a magical kingdom hidden away from the hubbub above


edit: here's the photo from my trip
