I'm in love with Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau's movies. This is probably the first movie I've ever described as "thoroughly delightful". It just made me really happy. I was still recovering from seeing Ant-Man and the Wasp yesterday—recoiling at the EMPTINESS—then I get to see this awesome little low-budget movie and all is well in the world—if only for a moment. The only sad thing is how few people will ever see it! [see it!]
I hadn't seen this movie in 15 years. I got to see it in a theater when it first came out - during my first year of college. In Nebraska. I was into KMFDM, The Smiths (and Deee-lite and Madonna). Who knows what I'd make of this movie if I saw it for the first time today - there's no way I could know. But watching it again, I'm glad I led my life the way I did, and I'm glad this movie is a part of it.
