Film Buffs

What sophisticated taste Mari is developing! She spent the morning watching the Jacques Tati film, Mon Oncle. It's top of my list of favourite films (just ousting Gentleman Prefer Blondes) and just the most perfectly constructed film in so many ways. Lighting, colour, composition, exquisite humour, biting social satire; just brilliant. Anyway, she watched the whole thing and announced "I like that film". A girl after my own heart. Next weekend we might try her with Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Loved in this house for the spectacle, the diamonds, Marilyn of course, racy innuendoes, the near naked (hilarious!) olympic team in the gym number, and best of all, the bondage girls in the famous "Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend song and dance number". Priceless and wonderful.

Of course we do like a good book too.
