Amelie

I watched Amelie tonight....

....one of the quirkiest and in places funniest films that I have watched. As French film very often does it strikes at the very heart of human nature. It makes truly wonderful viewing.

Well worth it, dude. A charming and gentle movie with some appealing touches of whimsy. French to the core. :D
"Most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~Leo Tolstoy

"It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character." ~Dale Turner

"Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either." ~Albert Einstein
"Truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but, in the end, there it is." ~Winston Churchill

I have heard good reviews of this film before, but have forgotten to check it out. Perhaps I will do so in the near future. :)
