Identify this film which is ruining baklava for me

It was either in French (most likely) or German (may have had English subtitles). It was about a poor kid having grown up to be a rich man, and the story was being told via flashbacks. The detail I remember is some scenes about him being invited to a rich kid's house for a dinner. He took homemade baklava as a gift, which was looked down upon. His family may have been Turkish immigrants to this European city. [more inside]

What IS that film?

Name that film: A noble woman in 18th C. France dresses as a man. I seem to remember her wearing a uniform but am unsure if she's in the military. She sets something of a trend and other women begin to copy her. She meets a man. He doesn't initially know that she's a woman. A love interest develops. I probably saw it on HBO or the like sometime in the mid 80's. It was probably released around the same time.

Quelle Coincidence?

I am trying to remember the title of a French movie I saw in early 1999, although it may date from earlier than that. I don't remember the content of the main part of the movie at all other than that it had to do with amazing coincidences (or AN amazing coincidence, something like that)... [more inside]

What is this song from Cléo de 5 à 7?

It's obscure-songs-from-French-movies time! The film "Cléo de 5 à 7" has a haunting tune sung by Cleo about halfway through called "Without You", which I cannot elaborate on much further except that some of the lyrics are about an empty house and (I think) the wind blowing through it. Since the soundtrack does not seem to exist any longer, is there any way I can get my hands on it anymore? Has someone in subsequent years covered it?
