As I say, just tonight I wondered to myself, if someone asked me what is my favourite film, it would be sooooo difficult, but whenever I think hard about films I've seen or even when I don't, for some reason, I always think of La Bonne Annee.
So I keyed it into IMDb right now.
I have absolutely no idea where I saw it or when, but it probably was in France in the 70s. And I've probably only seen it once, but I've never forgotten it.
I just thought it had everything about it that was good about French cinema or at least any cinema that wasn't Hollywood (and that's not a criticism of Hollywood, just a comment that French is different).
I haven't looked at the comments yet but I look forward to reading them, and in these days of being able to access, I really hope somehow to be able to see it again.
I sort of remember it was an older man involved. I was a young man when I saw it, and I'm an older man now, but I'm even more 'French' than I was then, having spent so much more time there, can speak the language pretty well, know all the best hotels in the south of France etc etc.
