Crop And Save
Reminds me of an old film...
I thoroughly enjoyed this film with its easy pace and moments of emptiness - but it really reminded me a lot of the 1962 version of "Carnival of Souls". You have the car driven off the bridge, the recurring musical theme, the constant drawing to the water, her acceptance of a job after travelling there after the crash, the way her life gradually corrupts despite her being given a second chance and the final moments where she's discovered to have died in the original crash after all. The two films aren't so similar that I was certain it was a remake, in many ways guessing if it was a supernatural story or not made it more interesting to watch.
The Year of the French (1982)
I remember it fondly - but will I ever see it again?
Well, I also saw it when it first came out (more than once actually, may have also seen it on RTE or a repeat) - and I have to disagree with one of the previous comments - it isn't in French with English subtitles! The 6 part miniseries covers the events of 1798 when a French army was sent by the revolutionary government to support the Irish rebellion there at the time from a number of perspectives - the French army's being only one (and the only one in French).
I remember it as not being the best series I've ever seen - by a long shot - but I still enjoyed it, and it's a fascinating period in Irish history that could do with a revisit from the cinema. I wonder if it'll ever get re-released or shown again?
