This is very very unique. And it's a good movie, a good thriller. It's stunning. The interaction between each character is so well executed, especially the scenes between Georges and Anne. It's such a real relationship. The movie is creepy and leaves you speechless and with so many hypotheses. Impossible to recommend, it's a film you have to see of your own volition.

Plus, it's Daniel Auteuil. I'd watch him boiling an egg. One of my happiest moments ever was arriving in Paris and the first night seeing him walk into a cafe, shaking hands with a handsome man at the entrance. I pinched myself.

The throat slitting scene was a bit extreme.

I knew it was going to happen, and I liked that extreme shock, just like with the chicken. It really made you bolt up and horrify you.

It is an extremely well-crafted work: I found myself musing on my own post 9/11 paranoia, and how I view some of the world's less fortunate not as victims, but as threats.

You have excellent taste in celluloid, Madamoiselle Julia. I Vitelloni, is superb, as is the ferociousness of La Haine: you seem to favour the melancholic, greyer feel. However, if you wish to watch something of a lighter nature, may I suggest 'Les Ripoux', which has Philip Noirret, who you may know from 'Cinema Paradiso'.

If you are ever in Paris and find the DVD, I'd willingly pay a small fortune for it. My favourite cop-buddy movie.

Security Dog (love your pic, feck!) - I love the Ripoux movies (they're available on eBay, check it out). Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to checking out your blog too, make sure you post some movie reviews as we do have very similar (ie good) taste!
