I Need to Watch More Foreign Films
I finally got around to watching Amelie tonight--the famous French movie about an introverted, highly imaginative young woman in Paris. Audrey Tatou is gorgeous--very Audrey Hepburn. And Mathieu Kassovitz is lovely in the role of her equally quirky and lonely love interest.
It was a cute movie--very strange, but filled with wonderful images. I can see why it was so popular when it first came out.
More importantly, it reminded me that I'm woefully behind in my foreign films. I'll watch just about anything that comes out of England, but aside from "Life is Beautiful," I've pretty much ignored the rest of Europe. I'll have to rectify this.
