My father sent me a clip of Sharon Osbourne attacking a contestant on a reality show she hosts. My father said he wishes she would just go back to England and stay there. He then said, it would be nice if all the English actors would just go back to England. I asked him why he feels that way. He said you would never see an American on the BBC. They have actual laws over there that you must hire local talent. I think its the same way in Canada. Many of my favorite shows were filmed in Canada. I always saw the same faces over and over again. Many times in the same series just playing different parts. It became a game to me- Where have I last seen that Canadian Character Actor? That guy played Nikita’s boyfriend, he was also the cop that went bad in Forever Knight, and he replaced Ray Vecchio in Due South.
This evening I put in my latest Netflix movie, La Buche. Watching scenes of snowy Paris roads, I couldn’t help but think of one of my favorite movies, Ma nuit chez Maud (My Night with Maude) directed by Eric Rohmer. The movie discusses Pascal’s famous wager as well as temptation. It’s a good film. At any rate, after watching La Buche, I went onto IMDB to find out a little bit more about the movie and guess what!?! The mother in La Buche was portrayed by Françoise Fabian WHO ALSO PORTRAYED MAUD! I know! My head just spins! Another interesting connection I found was with the movie, On connaît la chanson (Same Old Song). Charlotte Gainsbourg was in La Bouche, and her mom Jane Birkin was in On connaît la chanson, and Sabine Azéma was in both! I would love to see On connaît la chanson again. The movie had a novel premise, you see the characters reveal their inner emotional states by bursting out in song— but it’s not them singing, it’s clear they are lip syncing along to an old song. It’s kinda weird but it worked somehow.
Check it out:
I think the reason for the fight is that Sabine found out that a building is going to be erected right in front of her new apartment and wreck her gorgeous view. I could be wrong though.
