Storyline

In London, a young man fancies himself Jean Paul Belmondo. His flat is decorated with movie posters, he mutters in French, smokes cigarettes, dresses as if he's in '60's Paris. His mother calls - to her he's Trevor - and reminds him to pick up his younger sister, Minne. He meets up with her; she's accompanied by Tim, a friend. Trevor takes them to a French film. On the way out, he overhears a couple talking. She likes the film, her date doesn't. In character, Trevor punches out the guy. The young woman runs off and Trevor chases her. Has Trevor as Belmondo already pictured this scene? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Matinée in from the cold

I am certain that Kriss must have been involved in the writing, is the bloke with the beard sleeping in the cinema credited? write in and tell us cowboy.

I have no issues with the film, and see no need to be critical. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I am surprised that Kriss who is so young has been able to become exposed to so much idiomatic french film-making, there is hardly any shown nowadays on TV. I used to see a lot of Japanese and french film, as well as German TV series (remember derrick?) in the late 70's early 80's. It just does not seem to happen at all, with so much cheap TV time to fill. I even used to see polish and iranian film on the do#mestic channels.
