Why Doesn't Blimpy Want To Watch A Gangster/Opera Movie (That's Also French & Made In The 80's)?

Actually that does look very good, I liked the part where the two main protagonists witness a murder, except one of them is blind, and the other deaf. Excellent premise!

I have an ancient copy of this taped off the television with an Alex Cox introduction. He describes it as the only film he knows where the entire colour scheme is based on a packet of Gauloises (or Gitanes, my memory is not what it was). How can you possibly resist that, Blimpy?

Young Richard Bohringer in a bath! Roller skating Japanese schoolgirls! Opera singers! Whats. Not. To. Like?? Go for it Blimp. You'll be glad you did...

Having seen Diva is one of the Guardian reader's eligibilty rules, isn't it? And Blimpy hasn't watched Jean De Florette & Manon Des Sources either! Hope the committee doesn't hear about this.

Has to be done, Blimpy. You'll feel better for it.
