It is a fascinating documentary on the life of late French painter/dealer of "beautiful" painters Jean-Baptiste Arbogast. It is a must see for both art lovers and anyone interested in art, particularly French artists. Arbogast was a prolific artist whose works were all over the world. He used black and white and was an expert in B&W painting. His works were beautiful and original, and he used a unique style. He was well-known for his surreal and colorful paintings. Most of his work was original, and he was a great artist. He was known for his negative taste in painting, and he often used other mediums like oil, watercolor and acrylics to create his paintings. He was particularly known for his black and white paintings. He became the father of modern French painting. One of his paintings, the "Fue mourir de l'aventure" (the "Little Child") is famous. This was a controversial painting. Arbogast was in a way a "godfather" of modern French painting, and he was strongly criticized by some for his "racist" painting. The film does not attempt to justify the criticisms. In the film, Arbogast is interviewed about his thoughts on this and other subjects. It is a fascinating interview and the documentary is excellent. I highly recommend this film.

I would like to express my appreciation to the Director, the Actor, the Producer and the Editor, who have made this film. I must say, they all deserve great recognition. My wife and I, we both, are both fans of Franco and his films, but this one is special. As a Franco fan myself, I was not disappointed at all. For anyone who hasn't seen it, please check it out!

I'm not sure what is more horrifying, the utter lack of humanity, or the human beings' apathy and lack of care for the destruction of the planet. Why can't they just leave the Earth alone? If they would, how long would it take to get rid of all the pollution, and the animals? And when it's the right time to do it, how long would it take? It's really sad to see these people waste so much time and energy on this. And when you think that the world will just disappear into thin air, what's left to do with your life? Not much. It's actually sad to see so many people who have nothing to do with the planet, and who have no respect for the Earth, not even for the creatures they are killing, but for themselves. No matter how many animals are left in the world, it's only a matter of time before some of them die. It's the same with the animals. Just take the animals out of the environment and you've got nothing left. And it's the same with the Earth. I don't know what's going to happen, but it's going to end soon, unless something good comes along.

I am a graphic designer, so I have to admit that I'm not a very big fan of SciFi. If you are one of those that are fan, this documentary will do you good. Some of the highlights include stories from the past that many would like to forget. The tone is very refreshing. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of SciFi, is not in the SciFi industry, or is not a big fan of SciFi. This is a must watch documentary. I can not believe that it took two years to be made. This documentary makes you a more knowledgeable person about SciFi. The characters are portrayed perfectly. Not many documentaries can do that.

The best thing about this movie was the direction and production values. I'm not a huge fan of the Sony guys, but they did a great job here. The shots were of a great quality, and the sound was excellent. It is a great production. It looks like they have a good budget, and have some very talented people on staff. It really shows you that you don't need a big budget to make a great film. The last movie I was at the very end of the last night, and it was a great, energetic, fun evening. If you're into sports documentaries, you should definitely go check this out.

I'm not a big fan of the female Nudes, but in this one they did a great job. The man seemed very comfortable and comfortable with his naked self. The story is full of symbolism. I don't really know how to explain it, but I can't help it. This is a very human story. I think that all men, even those who are shy, can relate to this film, because it shows that even the shy man can be very shy. I have a friend who was a very shy person. He never really had a chance to show his body to anyone. But this movie shows that even the shy person can be shy. The main character is also a shy person. He talks about his obsession with women, and the insecurity he has to be like the rest of the world, because he is never allowed to express his feelings, which is something that he feels as a man, not a woman. He has to pretend to be a person he isn't, to please his parents and his father. The main character is very nervous. He is a shy person and yet he has to pretend to be someone he's not. That's what he does with women, and what he does with himself. This film is very unique, and is a must see for all men. I'm not a fan of the film, but it is very unique. It's a very very special film.

A film that is in my view better than any other films about the two warring factions in the Cold War. The film begins with the late Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev's address at the UN in 1961 to show the entire world that the Soviet Union would not bow to the demands of the U.S.A. in the Cold War. However, after that speech, the U.S.A. invaded Cuba and broke off relations with the USSR. The film is set in 1970, the Cold War has been broken up, but a small group of Soviet soldiers still remain in Cuba and are used to participate in the politics of the island. But the events that would change the Cuban Revolution begin. This film is very informative and takes a very serious point of view on the Soviet invasion of Cuba. The film also talks about the oppression of the Soviet Union and the brutality of the U.S.A. in the 50's and the 60's. The film is very powerful and worth seeing.

I caught this movie by accident, but it is worth watching. It seems to me that a lot of French people have been ignorant about the post-war years in the USA, but maybe they have some family history that explains it better than the movie itself. And, as the movie is about a conflict that happened in the past, I believe that it is interesting to see the history of the other side. The movie is quite informative, but if you want to know more about the US, you have to read books. I'm not a great reader and I've never even heard of the books "Fallen Angels" and "The Mighty Fall". I think the movie gives you the impression of what it was like during the war, but it doesn't tell you all the details of what really happened, like the one-sided view on the other side. I'm sorry, but I would not have watched this movie if I knew that it was about the war, but I think that it is an interesting historical document. I would recommend it to everyone, but I am very sorry that it is not available on DVD or in the video store.

Ralph Nader is one of my favorite American public figures and it's a pleasure to see him speaking about the nation's collective and individual indifference to the health of the planet and the environment, especially when he has the chance to do so in a setting that is relatively far from his home in Vermont. You can watch this video and ask yourself a lot of questions. One thing is certain. We should be asking ourselves what kind of a nation we are, not what kind of a person we want to be. After all, this is a documentary about a man who is at the center of an environmental movement that is now almost completely dead. The truth is that Ralph Nader is one of the few people who has had the courage to bring his unique brand of integrity and transparency to the political arena, and he is a valuable public figure who should be celebrated and recognized. It is a shame that he will not be remembered for his political activism and the progressive, popular message that he brought to the political arena, and his legacy will remain as the only one from which the United States never recovered.

If you were a kid, this film will have a little bit of "childhood" in it. But not too much, for the most part. The director, Marc Kinley, does a fantastic job at being able to capture the ambiance of those moments in the 80s and the 90s, but the story is the interesting part. There is a lot of discussion about a lot of different issues that were prevalent during this time period. I'm not going to go into them all, but I can tell you that the concept of "anti-heroes" is something that is dealt with. This is a wonderful film, and I look forward to seeing it again and again. It is an amazing time capsule.

This is a stunning movie. It is powerful, it is fun and it is captivating. For me it's a masterpiece. It is a mixture of real-life, classic cinema, documentaries and artistic images. It is all done very well, but there is one thing I have to criticize: the language. The narration is rather hard to understand, I do not understand French. I'm sure that I will be able to understand it in a few minutes, but if I want to understand the movie in a deeper way, it will take a little more time. I know that the language is not the main concern of the movie makers, but I believe it is a real problem in this case. The French is not that easy to understand. On the other hand, I also think that this movie could have been better and more interesting, if the director had chosen to put some subtitles on the screen. I have some questions about the movie, but I don't know if they will be answered, I hope not.

This documentary gives a good overview of the tragedy of the Rwandan genocide. It is well-made and offers a clear perspective on the conflict. The film covers the massacres of Tutsis and Nuer during the genocide. While the genocide itself is not given a great deal of attention, the sheer scale of the tragedy makes this genocide a little less of a detail than other "Holocaust" movies. The film does not dwell on the issue of human rights abuses by the Hutu/Tutsi minority. However, it is a must-see documentary for anyone who wants to learn more about this terrible event. Recommended.

It is the best film ever made about life in the Soviet Union. It is an overwhelming testament to the work of actors and the director that this film was able to find an audience and become a phenomenon. The film is both gripping and enlightening, and there is a really touching story line. It is also very well directed and beautifully shot. There are some scenes that leave you wondering what exactly happened. Overall, it is a film you should see.

This documentary about the cult film it was based on is a classic case of many great films being made by some really great filmmakers. It is a movie about the cult classic It's a Wonderful Life, made by Francis Ford Coppola and released in 1948. It tells the story of how that movie was made, and how it was received by the world. It also tells how people were inspired by the film, and how the movie changed the world. I have watched this film many times, and I never tire of it. It is a great story, and it is amazing how it was made. I have seen many other films like this one, and I do not see how other films have been made like this one. I am glad that this film is being made by a true story of a true cult movie.

This film is absolutely amazing and I have watched it many times and I don't know where to begin. It's so unique and so very touching. It is a unique documentary about the lives of 15 young French women who had to endure the war in Algeria and how their lives changed. The film shows the amazing beauty of France and the sense of freedom and family that was there. The women in the film were a part of this freedom, but also the freedom of the state, and this freedom is lost as they age. The films are really very touching. I really feel for these women, and they are very strong and very resilient. I really think that this film deserves a lot more attention than it has gotten. It's absolutely amazing, and I am so thankful to have been exposed to it. It's so refreshing to see such a wonderful documentary about a topic that people don't often talk about.

It's no secret that the movie industry is rife with consumerist excess. The people who work in the movie industry seem to think that the production of movies is just a means to an end. So it was no surprise to see what they did in the last decade. It's no surprise to see how they get by, either. Because they are self-absorbed, self-centered people. They are clueless about the human being. The more you look into them the more you realize they are either complete idiots or sociopaths. They are so blinded by money and fame that they are blinded by other things. They think they know everything and everyone. And they don't even have the courtesy to look at each other, especially their own family members. This is something they are no doubt so afraid to do. I can't say that I'm surprised they are able to stay in their jobs. I don't want to get in the way of their work. But the way they look at their job is something that most of us should probably look at ourselves. The result is not just one more movie but also one more collection of interviews with people who know a lot more about us than we do. Not for everyone but it's an interesting peek into the lives of an industry. It's also an eye-opener. It's rare to find a movie that asks us to look inside a world that we normally ignore.

You won't be laughing or crying during this film. It's just an incredible story. The actors were great. The children are very real. The main actress and the children are really good. I am very happy to see so many people and so many good people that had made films and all it's members in French films. I am not going to tell you the story, you will see it yourself, but to me it was very interesting. I have watched this movie in French class. I didn't say anything because the teacher was talking to me. I was so proud. I can tell you that the principal told me that "He is not a liar". That's a big sign of French culture. When people do not lie, they don't get punished. It's a very important thing. It's true that some people don't like the story, but I thought that this is a beautiful story. I thought that it was a beautiful story that was made so very well. It was very difficult to tell the story in one movie. You have to tell it in 2 hours. It is a very difficult thing. It's difficult to make a movie in a year, but this movie was made very very well. It is very important that people see this film because it is really important. We cannot be sad when we are not sad. We cannot be happy when we are not happy. We cannot be sad when we are sad. We must be happy when we are happy. It is very important to have a good quality of life.

I am extremely thankful for the new editions of the "Davids" and the "Bournemouth Story" to be released in Belgium and Holland. I remember the first film in the series as a book and I really enjoyed it. I read the first book and really enjoyed the scenes and story. Then, I decided to watch the second film with my boyfriend, and I was really surprised. The new movie was also really good, and the story was also more interesting. I have to admit, I'm not really a big fan of television movies, but the movie "Dreamers" was really good. I can imagine that the book "Davids" is very much like the book "Dreamers", so I was really happy that I got the chance to watch the "Davids" again. Now, I am looking forward to the "Bournemouth Story". I know that the story is also very interesting, so I can't wait to watch it. I really hope that the new editions will be released in Belgium and Holland. It was nice to read the old editions and watch the new edition. I'm really grateful for the new editions. Thank you.

I had the good fortune to view this at the Musée National des Arts D'Orsay in Cannes in 2007. The film was first screened there in 1998. I have a fondness for French film and the idea of showing a good film is always nice to see. It was a great honor to be able to view this in French. I have only one complaint: the "blue screen effect" and the "previsualization". In other words, I think this should have been made a full length film, with the addition of some "real" filming techniques. The entire "nostalgia de la luz" was a shame. But, if only this was a full length feature film, with the addition of a full length "exposition" by Olivier Assayas (I love his movies!) and a full length "nostalgia de la luz" in the foreground, it would have been an excellent experience for the audience.

While the French still have a tradition of speaking a local language, it is often said that the French can do better than the Germans. This documentary looks at what the Germans have to say about the language. For example, in the 70's, the French culture came up with "groupe d'hommes", and in their "Ensemble de Recherche", the French used the German words "Gus" and "Haar" to indicate a man's masculinity. But then, this is the 90's. There are fewer examples of German phrases in the new "bondage-sex" films (only two, but they are included). At least we have several examples of the German concept of "death by a thousand cuts". I was surprised by the fact that, in most of the German films, the men do not refer to themselves as "die Welle" (the European term for "husband", but which also means "patriarch", in the German "Richten-Reich"). When they are just talking about the things they have done in their lives, they usually refer to their wives. In the 80's, however, they usually talk about the sexual partners they had and sometimes they have sex with each other. I think that this is a good sign of a lost way of thinking in the German society.

Celine Bataille does not like the French Revolution. "I'm not like the movie," she said in a 2003 interview. Bataille studied French history at university and has lived in France for decades. She now lives in California with her husband and their son. But, what I love about her is her self-reflection. Bataille has been in a certain position in her life. She's a kind of intellectual - a political woman, for example - but one of the most intense and fervent intellectuals in France, a respected scholar of history. But Bataille also has a feeling of social exclusion and is a member of the French communist party. At the same time, she was one of the most outspoken defenders of a French law, a 1979 law on abortion, which would have severely restricted abortion in France. She was also one of the founders of a movement in France, called "Le Society." It was a group of women who supported Bataille's rights as a woman and who had the guts to challenge the state of the state. But Bataille has never reconciled herself to the fact that she is a woman in a patriarchal society. She is no more liberal or feminist than the French women who were her fellow-actors in the 1970s. She just doesn't like the French Revolution. "I know a revolution when I see one," she said. "And that is, in this case, the one in France." Bataille's feelings are not surprising. Many of the women who were involved in the French Communist Party in the 1970s - and who today fight for women's rights in the French government - have either been angry with the party or have been extremely frustrated by it. The women who formed Le Society were, for example, more militant than the women in the Communist Party. In the 1970s, many of these women were not even communists. It was only in the 1980s, when Bataille became a Socialist, that she became a Marxist. In some ways, Bataille is a feminist. She has spent much of her life fighting for the rights of women and for a strong state. But she has never renounced her fundamental identity as a feminist. Her struggle is not about the role of women in the state or even in the family. It's about the role of women in the world, and it is her very struggle to do that. I can imagine how Bataille feels. In the film, she is interviewed by French author Lina Sieland, a friend of Bataille's, about her life and her views on the revolution. Sieland tells her that it is now almost impossible for Bataille to express her views on the revolution because there are people like her. Sieland points out that people like Bataille in France today have very different ideas about what the revolution was and what it should have been. This is not to say that Bataille is wrong about the revolution. She says that it was a tremendous success. But she sees that the revolution was a failure. Bataille points out that the revolution did not unite the French people. It divided them. And she points out that, today, there is a sense of frustration among many women in France. For Bataille, the fact that people like Sieland tell her what she thinks is telling. She feels she has been made to look foolish. For a long time, she feels that her ideas are the wrong ones, but she has to tell them. Bataille is not alone. There are many other women who think differently about the revolution. In many ways, Bataille's view is not so different from those of Sieland and Sisti. She just does not share the same vision. In many ways, the movie "Le Society" is a funny and interesting film. It also is a study of the tensions that people have to face today. Bataille, for example, is a woman who believes that there is too much focus on sex in modern society. But she also thinks that it's not just about sex - that it's about everything. She says that the revolution would not have happened in France if not for the French women who helped organize the women's movement

If you are a fan of any of the (very good) Cuban movies, or if you're a relative of one of the characters, you will definitely enjoy this. The scenes, which show the two films together are unforgettable. As if you were in Cuba at the same time, just before the revolution. The filming and the music and everything is so interesting, you won't forget it.
