Go see it! One of the better ones i've ever saw.
is a nonsense word, and this:the dictionary said:Intouchable
- no dictionary results
Did you mean Un touchable?
would obviously be indicative of the quality of English that the type of person such a ridiculously-named film would attract, but then this:Go see it! One of the better ones i've ever saw.
Gets Calo off the hook.French
Leon, City of the Lost Children, Delicatessen, A bout de Souffle (Don't like that meself but hey, apparently a classic), Amelie, The Fifth Element?Le Femme Nikita is the only one I can think of, in about one hundred years of cinema.
Directed by a Frenchman with a largely French crew and funded by a French Production company, It's who pays for the production that generally indicates the nationality of a movie. Being in English or even filmed in an English speaking country doesn't necessarily make it an American/British film. I also find it hard to believe you've never heard of The Fifth ElementLeon is in English and filmed in America with a mostly American cast but stars and is directed by a very good Frenchman (The only decent French actor?)
Never heard of the others.
You edited that in.I also find it hard to believe you've never heard of The Fifth Element .
Fix this, now. Seriously, shut off phone, turn off other stuff, disconnect doorbell and kick the wife(if any9 out the door for a manipedishoeshopthing or something.I have actually never seen it in it's entirety. Every single time I have sat down to watch it I have been interrupted. I have however seen the first half hour or so about 30 times.
Depends on what you deem pretentious, if being interested in something beyond its base level (not saying there's anything wrong with that) is pretentious then I suppose it is. My point was basically that French film and its directors especially have had a massive impact on the way that people think about film - and especially those that make films - so France has definitely had a massive impact and produced some of the most important works of modern times.Sounds tremendously pretentious. Is it?
