Chocolat

A few nights ago, Paul and I watched Chocolat. Given all the recommendations I’ve heard over the years, I expected a compelling and dramatic story. I wasn’t expecting such a strong theme against duty, particularly not religious duty. (My only small complaint concerned the Easter Homily: The pro-life sensuality of Vianne was not tolerated but embraced.)

I also recently watched The Miracle Worker — and let me simply add my voice to the chorus of recommendations for that excellent movie.

I am presently on the hunt for This Land is Mine, a movie recommended as their absolute favorite by both Yaron Brook and Lisa Van Damme. Since its only available on VHS at present, I’m going to see if I can find it via TiVo.

I’ve never been much of a watcher of old movies, so I’d appreciate any strong recommendations from my readers.
