Good. Great. Excellent. Now that that is out of the way... onward to the next lily pad.
This is the bit of the post where I explain my ever-growing love of french new wave cinema. In particular, Jean-Luc Godard through whom I discovered a plethora of talented and fashionable leading ladies (and a few men). I started out with À bout de souffle (aka: Breathless) like so many before and after me. But not until the amazing Pierrot le fou did I truly fall in love with the lovely, if not a bit kooky, actress Anna Karina (not to be mistaken with the literary character of a similar).I remember smiling through at least half of it the first time I saw it - which happened to be on a big screen...sigh. I haven't seen the film for quite some time but I had a dream about it (or at least a dream that was obviously under the influence of it) last night and thus woke up feeling very inspired by Ms. Karina and thought I'd pass it on to you. so do enjoy...photos: flikr & nytimes
