Hi all

Anyone used to watch these?

I adored them, films such as:

One deadly summer
Death in a French garden
He died with his eyes open
Pauline at the beach

I remember watching those. The ones that stood out the most:

Au Revoir les Enfants
Savage Nights
Diva
The Accompanist
Subway
Police (with Gerard Depardieu)
Vagabond
The Horseman on the Roof
Mina Tannenbaum
Le Cop
The Frog Prince (with Jane Snowden)

The one with Charlotte Gainsbourg as a rebellious 13-year-old. Edit: An Impudent Girl.

I had no idea how lucky we were with Channel 4 and BBC 2.

Still my favourite French film. Years ago, I got a French colleague to pick up a French DVD of the Director's Cut version (no subtitles) as no DVD was available in the UK. The closing scene still has tears pissing from my eyes (and I'm sure it's not just the 2 bottles of wine that I've necked by then).
