Quotes

Rosy: Why's this place called the Monroe Seismographic Institute?
Eddie Tikel: Marilyn Monroe. Don't you know? She was Richter's whore. The guy who measured earthquakes.
Libby: When there's an earthquake, the scientists are really happy. The seismograph draws Marilyn Monroe naked, and they determine the size of the wake by the size of her tits.
Rosy: That Richter was a real pervert.

Saint Clara aka Clara Hakedosha
24 April 2001 | by (Fort Worth, Texas 76116) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much. I did not understand much of the movie. I am not sure if this is the way kids act in Israel and if that is the way the education system works or not. I saw the movie on TV with the name of "Saint Clara".

I enjoyed the movie and the love story and the interesting weird people in the movie. It made me wonder about some of the things that were said during the movie. I guess the same way people outside of the U. S. must wonder about things said and done in American movies.

Watching this I was thinking about the movie "Tin Drum" (Die Blechtrommel) and wishing there was someone watching it with me that after the movie was over could tell me what in the hell it was all about.

Maybe it is better sometimes to NOT know what the author or director was trying to say...Because I did enjoy the movie and hope to see it again on TV.
