And the word of the day is: MACRAME!

My mom used to do macrame, a long time ago.  I made a couple of things when I was a kid...bracelets, I think, but I don't have them anymore.

Not on topic at all but we watched Peter Jackson's "Heavenly Creatures" tonight.  I've not seen it since it was first out.  It stands up very well indeed.

C note:

That is why, even though it is time-consuming and a pain, I plan my own photo poses for a shoot when I am directing.  We nearly lost an ANNIE once when some idiot decided he wanted to see her thrown around by the servants who were just NOT paying attention, being busy with their costumes and all.... OOPS!

And the word of the day is: MACRAME!
Heather MacRame was known for her outlandish dresses, hand-woven and quite colorful, but scorned by her fellow members of the PTA because they were made of hemp.  Heather thought her dresses were "smokin'!", and that the PTA bitches were clueless.

There were a pair of French films that I caught in the late '70s, comedies that I enjoyed a great deal.  The first was Un éléphant ça trompe énormément, and it's sequel was Nous irons tous au paradis.  Very funny stuff.  They were released here in the US as Pardon Mon Affaire and Pardon Mon Affaire, Too, with the first film remade in English as Lady in Red (stealing bits from the second film, as well).

From France:
Les Uns et Les Autre (Not the edited version they showed in the USA called Bolero. A stupid name if there ever was)
Les Adventures De Rabbi Jacob ( I believe the only film of Louis de Funès who was a wonderful French comic to get a wide North American Release)
Jacques Tati's Playtime
Belle De Jour
Indochine
Misérables, Les (Claude Leloche version)
Un homme et une femme
Le Roi de Coeur

From Quebec:
Jesus de Montreal
Le Déclin de l'empire Américain
Kamouraska
Mon oncle Antoine
Les Invasions Barbares
and
Fantastica (only because I work on it. The scene I did was filmed in  a gay porno theater, but was turned into a concert hall for the movie)

so many so many more both from France and Quebec

There's one that I always forget the name of, but someone here can help I'm sure. UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG always reminds me of it because it ends with a bunch of homeless people flying off into the sky on umbrellas and broomsticks singing all the while.

Black and white French film. The plot involves homeless and poor people who set up a kind of utopian society on this little section of land, and the city drives them out. Until they fly away singing a song about socialism.

DR Rodzinski, it's MIRACLE IN MILAN, and it's not a French film.

I think it IS Miracle in Milan, which does end with the townspeople flying off on broomsticks.
