I've been watching a few recently.... well i dont actually own THAT many french films, just only Amelie, Paris, Je T'aime and some weird some called C.R.A.Z.Y. In a tiny nutshell, the plot to 'C.R.A.Z.Y' is boy has a 'gift' in healing people, gets caught dressing in Mother's clothes as a young kid, potential gay experiences, um.. druggie brother, wedding, random trip to somewhere random, Morocco?, Christmas Mass and a black eye. It's a really odd film.
My french is BAD. Like seriously crap. I guess i can get slightly by as you kinda recognise a few words, but in school i was always in the average/middle sets for french. I rely on subtitles, but regardless, those films are pretty good in their own way. But yes, im going through HMV website to look for some film bargains, and er, La Vie En Rose is on sale. 2dvd and only £3.99. Not including that 10% student discount... its soooo tempting! But im not sure whether to buy it or not. The only reason i can think of to buy it is PURELY because of the price... but i need something to watch and i am kinda going on a role with all these french films.
I would buy Juno but i still need the price to go down! I dont think Harry Potter would make me feel any better... i really WANT to buy something now...
Chronicles of Narnia? I want to see the new with, Prince Caspian but i need to see the first one first.
(Oh and now i think of it, The Science of Sleep is partially in french, ANOTHER french-ish film..)
Ok, its between La Vie En Rose and Cats. Yes, Cats the MUSICAL. I remember watching it like in year... 5? And since then i've always longed to watch it again.. But i dont have enough money to buy both!!!!! Or do i? But it would be ALL the money on my debit card... Or Memoirs of a Geisha? It looks soooooo pretty. And the weather is pretty shitty these past few days.. it would be nice to eat some warm microwave popcorn watching a potentially b-o-r-i-n-g but visually stunning film.. i need to get the book. I always feel fake not reading the book and just watching the film.. i cannot wait for these students loans to arrive!
Ok, enough words, and less 'ok's too. Here are some lovely pictures.
I know, i really am like i child :) These pictures - stills from the film of course, just sooooo stunning!!!!! And i ordered La Vie En Rose and Memoirs of a Geisha. Now im off to re-watch Paris, Je, T'aime and Corpse Bride.
EDIT: I cancelled La Vie En Rose yes despite the 2dvd and chose Cats (the musical) instead. Hahah, I do love a musical though.
