Un chien avec la mauvaise odeur

Last week I saw A Very Long Engagement by director Jean Jeunet (of Amelie, Delicatessen) and featuring the actress who is perpetually described as "gamine"--Audrey Tatou. I had anticipated this film because I like Jeunet's other films and heard it had the magical realism of Amelie. 'Twas not as phantasmagoric as I hoped, but a good film nonetheless. Audrey Tatou relied on acting ability rather than charm; her character probed into what happened to five, court martialed WW I soldiers.

Random line from the movie: "Doggie farts, gladdens my heart." (When, oh when, will I cease to be amused by potty humor?)
