The Clever North Wind - Chocolat


All night long, I'd wake up from the loud gusts of wind against the window. Every time I heard the loud "whoosh", it made me think of one of my favorite movies. I woke at 6:30 this morning and could not fall asleep. I settled on the couch and turned on the TV. Guess what movie I found on Encore Love?

Chocolat

The movie I kept thinking about all night long! Kismet! I have watched it perhaps a dozen times now, maybe not from beginning to end, and I still love it. If you ever get the chance, you should see this movie.

UPDATE: Of course I love a movie that quotes Rimbaud! The grandmother (Judi Dench) gives her estranged grandson, Luc, a book of poetry. She asks, "Do you like poetry?" Luc lies and says yes. Grandmere replies, "Me neither. It's not that kind of poetry." And then reads from "The Drunken Boat". How awesome. I can't wait to be a spunky grandmother that reads Rimbaud adolescent poetry to my grandchildren to corrupt them. :)
