    I totally can’t believe I forgot about the Aviator, they filmed part of it at a friend’s house & everything…oh well, 2 secondes makes me sound more cosmopolitan.

    Well you can’t forget about Mambo Italiano. It wins in my book for comedy, and The Red Violin for drama.

    Oh..it’s a tie for me between Mother Night and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (I never knew my bank was behind the Iron Curtain!)

    Looks like I missed a good one. Sorry for not making it, work is pretty intense these days and I coudn’t keep my eyes open.

    Can I change mine to Red Violin? I totally should have remembered that one!

    Francois, I changed the link to the one you provided. I didn’t think that cassette cover went with that movie, but it’s funny that it’s on IMDB.

    Patrick, I changed your pick.

    I kinda cheated and remembered it this morning. The one I had in mind was some obscure black and white film that I saw at a film festival almost a decade ago. It had people driving around in cars and taxis and the taxi is driven into one of the quarries. If anyone knows the title, I’d be interested to hear it.

    What? No “The Whole Nine Yards” ?

    The mayonaise jokes alone are worth it :D

    Merci Frank pour le changement. C’est surtout moins genant d’avoir le cover original au lieu de celui d’un film porno. IMDB ne controle pas cela?

    J’aime bien un Zoo la nuit et Jesus De Montréal
    Jean-Pierre, juste pour te dire que Gaz bar Blues se passe à Québec.
