      Amelie – the proper French version naturally – and not the frightful American version which ought not to be allowed.

      • Reply by Mother Goose

        I have honestly never heard of this 😳

        • Reply by Nick Tilling

          Why, it’s the best film in film-land – at least according to me!

          I’ve drank at Les Deux Moulains on Rue Lepic and generally been to all of the location shots in the film (except for the pornography shop in Pigalle! I have got some standards!)

        I agree, and Le Concert, just superb

      Any of the old Ealing comedies but am especially fond of The Maggie for that feel good factor .More up to date would be Gregory’s Girl ,Babe or Fabulous Mr Fox .

      • Reply by aspie auntie

        I was really touched when Mr. Fox’s son Ash and his cousin Kristofferson played with the train set in the bedroom – reminded me of my dad coming home with various parts for a train set from Beatties.

        Good fun this film – they tend to show it on Sony movies a lot but cut out about a good 10 minutes!

        • Reply by Mother Goose

          I hate it when that happens, and then they put a showbiz gossip bit on midway.

        • Reply by Stevie C

          Okay, fair enough… Perhaps not…. Musicals, the classic of course is, perhaps,
          West Side Story , enjoyed Chicago. – My Fair Lady – Singing in the Rain.
          A star is Born, (Barbara Streisand )

          I have to include Mary Poppins for the wonderful uplifting song ‘ Go Fly a Kite ‘ and Dick Van Dykes accent. Have a good one Deb.

      Recently watched School of Rock’ and for some who tend to sway towards more soul music. I just love the AC/DC rock songs esp ‘it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll’.

      Shirley Valentine. I did what she did and never regretted the years I lived on Crete. I often wonder what happened after Joe turned up, I hope she stayed to live her dream.
