    Tree of Life.

    The first half seemed to be pretty much terrible, so from the beginning I wasn't expecting much, but it started getting better and better from when the oldest child (actually the protagonist) started dominating - the relationship between him and his father was quite interesting, and everything started to make sense just about half past the movie.

    The end is quite enigmatic I guess, since I am not sure if it was suicide/extreme nostalgia/something else?
    The parallel of life and death between humans and the cosmos was well made as well.

    The Double--stars Richard Gere as a retired CIA agent who returns to active duty to pursue a Russian assassin. It's was pretty good despite a few gaps in logic.

    Have you seen others by Cocteau, and if yes, which one do you recommend rather than Orphee?

    I haven't seen that much of Cocteau's work I watched the The Blood of a Poet which is the first in the "The Orphic Trilogy". It's good and well worth watching if you can find it. I have The Testament of Orpheus sitting on my desk and will let you know what I think.

    Thanks for your comment it makes me happy to know other people outside my group of friends enjoy this type of cinema.

    Thank you, my favorite french director is René Clair... but actually I love also Surrealism in every type of art (literature, cinema... and mostly painting )

    The Dark Knight Rises.

    Great cast, great film with a great soundtrack too.

    An excellent conclusion to the trilogy. Tom Hardy(Bane)'s voice to my ears was clear and understandable 99% of the time -only one line took a minutes thought so nowhere near as bad as some made out.

    I'd give it 9/10.
