Friday night and I’ve not gone out clubbing. This has to be virtually a first for 2003 – and although I didn’t quite stay in (went off to lovely Basingstoke to see a friend have a meal and 2 (two) beers) it was a bit of a detox night. It means I might get to bed before 1.30am…. I’m shocked at my own willpower.
Watched Amelie (le fabuleux destin de..) again tonight. It’s definitely in one of my top ten films and probably the best feel good film going. The cinematography is amazing (the camera sweeping from above her head when she skims a stone, across the bridge, 180 degree reversal to rest on the water), the lighting (blue filters outdoors, green on the metro) and she has the best face and smile going! + obviously the surreal and randomness of it all. Makes you feel good to be alive does this film – WATCH IT NOW!!! (And watch it in French with subtitles not dubbed… the accents and language is integral to it as usual even if vous ne parlez pas french
