Simon was mine and he loved me, then *she* came along and... sometimes, I just want to put this gun right against her head, and ever so gently, pull the trigger. When I hear that sound more and more...
I know how you feel. We all feel like that at times. However, I must warn you, mademoiselle: Do not allow evil into your heart, it will make a home there.
Jacqueline De Bellefort:

This film has to be one of my all-time favourites! I must have seen it at least 100 times and I always enjoy it as much every time. One of the greatest casts EVER, music is stunning (NINO ROTA) and the scenery is breathtaking. SEE IT. There haven't been many films like this and there certainly haven't been any to match it since when it comes to this particular genre. Surprised it hasn't been released on DVD yet.. oh well.
