Tampopo (タンポポ) (1985)
Hanging Garden (空中庭園) (2005)
From 1938, directed by Marcel Pagnol and starring the amazing Raimu.
The plot: a small French village gets a new baker after the old one commits suicide. The baker happens to be great at his job and the town worships him and his bread concoctions. His beautiful and much younger wife runs off with a sheepherder, he refuses to bake anymore until she returns. Deciding they cannot live without his bread, the town comes up with a plot to bring her back,
Very, very funny and poignant, the ensemble acting is note perfect and Raimu is a true comic gem, a combination of Zero Mostel and Oliver Hardy. Fantastic movie.
Also starring the great Ginette Leclerc
Yes, she was wonderful, evidently that film made her a huge star in France. I just think everyone was so wonderful, it's like a great meal, remove one ingredient and it just wouldn't be the same.
Check her out in Le Corbeau if you haven't seen it
That looks like a good one, will have to see it.
My husband just ordered Pagnol's The Marseille Trilogy, looking forward to that one too.
Lola Versus. A woman's boyfriend drops her just before her wedding and her life goes into a tailspin. Awful, Couldn't be worse.
The Wedding Singer
A Mighty Wind, written and directed by Christopher Guest, about a folk reunion concert. Very funny movie.
Kind of an odd movie. Here is the summary:
During the last 90 minutes of a screening of Dragon Inn at an old Taipei cinema about to close down, the hobbled ticket woman tries to find the projectionist to give him a steamed bun. A Japanese tourist seeks a homosexual encounter; Chen Chao-jung brushes off his advance and tells him the place is haunted. Jun Shi, an actor in Dragon Inn, watches the film with tears in his eyes. Outside, he meets Miao Tien, who also acted in the film and attended the screening with his grandson.
A House On The Bayou (2021)
Not a great IMDB score, but I really enjoyed it.
It's a Gift
