Has anyone seen "Amйlie"?
I went to see it yesterday. 5 people in the auditorium.. Well, I watch almost no Hollywood flicks or TV series in US - almost all of them are plain and stupid, have no purpose, and just a waste of time.. But if a foreign movie reaches this suburb of true culture, it should not be missed. Amйlie is amazing. Watching it is not a two hours of entertainment, while it does turn entertaining soemtimes. It's two hours of hard mindwork. If you won' turn your mind on right away, you'll find it hard to resist leaving after just 15 minutes. If anything ever can make you a better person, this movie will. Picturization of human mind. With all our weaknesses, weirdnesses, impulses, cruelnesses. Human soul turned inside out. I think Best Foreign Language Academy Award can be considered gone.
And Audrey Tautou is simply amazing .. ( Why is that I have an allergy for most of American actors and actresses, while it is for me to fall in love with everything French, except for their sportsmen, of course <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> ..)
