I'm still waiting...

I'm still waiting for this movie to show up on DVD, so I can see it again and see if it's held up well to my memories of it.

This movie does have some of the best user comments as any movie I've seen in IMDb. All are good, no bad ones in the bunch. You people are alright. No Sayyids in this group.

I'm convinced everyone who's written a comment here saw this movie in December, 1980. Yes, we all saw it on the same day on the same night and at the same time! I'm pretty much sure of that.

See ya in Paris sometime!

Amelie? I don't know, patrick. It was a good movie but it was a little more on the fantasy side, whereas French Postcards was a little more realistic -- or at least that's how I remembered it. Although I do believe Amelie is one of those movies whose clever style will be copied by many others. Look at Travelocity.com's commercials with their "Roaming Gnome". Is that where they got that idea?

I think the FP crowd would also like Diva (1982).

Bye for now.
