Hopefully I should have a couple of bundles of World Cinema DVD lovliness waiting for me on the doormat tonight. Last week during a periodic browsing sesh I discovered that HMV Online were selling Krzysztof Kieslowski's Trois Couleurs trilogy boxset for £13.99 and La Double vie de Véronique for £9.99,
which along with Three Colours: Red starred Irene Jacob.

It is a little known fact that I have a teensy weenie ickle crush (not so as you'd notice, hardly at all)on a couple of foreign actresses, namely Irene Jacob and Audrey Tautou.

I saw The Double life of Veronique years ago (probably in my teens) when Channel 4 used to be a half way decent channel that used to screen world cinema. It was a wonderful film and opened my eyes to everything that Continental/European film making is and Hollywood flippin well ain't.

Of course it helped significantly that these films starred beutiful young actresses with sexy accents who weren't averse to removing their kit ....for artistic purposes you understand.
