Well, there I was, trying to knit while watching a film in French when I realized--BAM--this is a jew story. I'm telling you, I'm a jew story magnet.
This was a simple film. It just told a story. It didn't try to be grandiose or revolutionary. I guess knowing that it was a foreign film and a jew story I was prepared for the ending. It was a good movie.
I got some knitting done and I'm surprised at how much French I understood.
Oh, and I recognized one of the monks in the film as Inspector Tarconi from the Transporter movies.
