Just looked it up…

A remake?!? Doesn’t Hollyweird have even one original idea in their coke-filled heads?

That’s just wrong on so many levels…

Ghostbusters is very underrated. Harold Ramis was the rare, true comedy genius.

I have mentioned only one movie, but can agree with almost everything that is mentioned in this thread.
But I would not mind if you swapped “La soupe aux choux” with “Les choses de la vie”.
Where the late Romy Schneider shines in one of her unforgettable performances (get out your handkerchiefs).

Whilst “La soupe aux choux” means The cabbage soup. Flatulency caused by eating it, is some kind of intergalactic morse, attracting an alien. Yeah I know.
Romy also has made some shxx films. The Sissi-triology should only be tolerated because it made her famous.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I usually prefer foreign language films over Hollywood blockbusters (although there are some exceptions – Bladerunner, the original Star Wars trilogy etc.).

At the top of my list are Tarkovsky’s ‘Stalker’ (1979) and ‘Solaris’ (1972). I love the way that he uses colour and very slow pans (sometimes lasting several minutes) instead of the usual fast-cut action.

Apart from that, dystopian sci-fi is pretty much my thing – THX-1138, Soylent Green, eXistenZ …

I love Louis de Funès! He was extremely popular in Germany when I grew up there. Anyone who likes ‘La soupe aux choux’ will probably also enjoy ‘Kin-dza-dza!’ – quite remarkable how that one slipped through Soviet censorship!

Another director who never fails to impress me is Takeshi Kitano (Fireworks, Dolls, etc.) – again, not necessarily for fans of fast-paced action.

Louis de Funès ah…. He did the funny fake Rabbi, you remember that one?

I must have watched dozens of films featuring him, but seem to have completely missed that one!

Jaques Tati is another French director whose films have always fascinated me (Playtime, Mon Oncle, Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot …). His bizarre and subtle humour is outstanding!
