don't fear death

(no subject)

i simply loved Amelie. it has found itself at the top of my absolute favorite movies list. i fell in love with audrey tatou. she is so adorable.
i am making a point now to see all of her movies. i also rented Happenstance, or Le Battement d’ailes du Papillon in french.... the Beating Wings of the Butterfly. i’ve always liked the butterfly effect applied to our own actions....
anyway, see Amelie!
