Day 10: Favourite foreign film

Three Colours Blue

I can remember the first time I saw this film.  Part of a trilogy following the colours of the French flag.  (Red was also very good, White...hmm not so much.) 

This was the first time I watched a foreign film and felt so moved that once it had finished I wanted to watch it again.  It opened up a whole world of cinema I'd previously ignored and now I'm more than happy to subtitle away.

Blue is the story of loss, of a woman who has gone through the worst tragedy possible and then follows the path her life takes...


There is something about the weather where grey skies equate to grey lives being led.  Each moment of sunshine results in my rushing out to spend as long as possible in the light.

One day I will have good news and a life of contentment.

It is that thought that keeps me going.

30 Days Movie Challenge Day 9

Day 9: Favourite musical
An American In Paris

It's very clear...

Current mood is still annoyed at the fact that I can't get a decent internet connection.
