C'est un mystere!

This is a long shot, but my SO is trying to identify a film he saw 15-20 years ago, in France, that he would love to re-watch. Unfortunately, he's forgotten the title. The film may be French, but we're not 100% sure. He doesn't remember any famous actors starring. Can anyone help? Plot inside... [more inside]

Looking for a Bergman interview.

I'm looking for an Ingmar Bergman interview (should be available online) in which he makes an analogy between the depiction of a character in film and a solo partita by Bach. All else I remember is that it was probably shot in the 50s or 60s in b/w and that the person asking questions was a Swedish critic of some sort.

Top 10 films

I have a sturdy little collection of films I love (Charlie Kaufman/Solondz/Wes Anderson/Coen Brothers/Jeunet/B. Del Toro/Fincher/Herzog....etc) and usually really enjoy going to the cinema. It's just, the past few weeks I haven't been excited about anything coming out (I usually find something to really look forward to...) and I've watched the DVDs I have a million times. I feel like there is amazing celluloid that could blow my head off out there, but I don't know what it is. Please help! What are your all-time-favourite, changed-my-life films? Your top 10 must-sees?

A good opening and a good ending make for a good film provide they come close together. Federico Fellini, [Recipe for a Good Film], a Fellini Lexicon, (1992)

When did certain film makers/producers start placing the title of the film at the very end of their film? I've noticed this tends to happen with independant/art-house style films? The film just begins and at the very end of the movie, the screen will flash the title of the film and then the credits will roll. Does someone know who started this?

Non-Simpsons Animated Shorts

I am trying to track down a cartoon short that played in movie theaters (or possibly just a movie theater in eastern Massachusetts) in the late 80's / early 90's. My memory is very vague, but it seems like it was a Simpsons clone (including a boy with spiked hair), and possibly a rude dog, but I'm not sure if it actually premiered pre-Simpsons. In my memory the boy was voiced by Joshua Miller, but he's not credited for anything like that. Regardless, he had that same kind of sinister/leering voice. [more inside]

Name this movie about the dead returning to their lives — not zombies!

Can anyone tell me the name of the Scandinavian movie that has people’s deceased friends and relatives returning from the dead? Only they’re not zombies — they look rather well, in fact — and seem rather confused about why and how they’ve managed to return. They try to go on with their lives, taking jobs, resuming family duties… but strains appear, and social tensions. Plus, they just *aren’t* quite the same as they were before. [more inside]

I want to turn a short play into a short film. If completed, it'll be a low-budget affair seen at a few festivals and hopefully online; the play was first performed in 1990 and the playwright is still alive. How do I go about getting the rights to film his play, or see if I can even think about affording it?
