Au Revoir Les Enfants

I've been meaning to watch this movie for years. I would always see it at Blockbuster in the foreign films section, but I never actually picked it up. It has been in my Netflix instant watch queue forever. Today while Ross was at school I decided to watch a movie and get some knitting done. I didn't know anything about this movie except that it had won a couple of awards.

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.

Crazy, this has been on my Netflix list for awhile as well. I miss you, my friend!
