French films

A FILM exhibitor (in lay language a cinema owner) once told me that the reason we get so many trashy French films owlhere is that for the really good ones the French cinema industry asks too high prices.

So, too often, we are fobbed off with second best, generally of the "oo-la-la" variety, I also understand that France's biggest customer is Germany and it is the German taste that is extensively studied.

The result is that a large "X" outside a cinema only means one thing. I can't help smiling maliciously at the folk who (when it comes to Lonon for general showing) will line up outside the film I saw last week at the Festival called "Le Septieme Commandement."

But it won't be what they think, for the French number their Commandments according to the Catholic Church and this film is all to do with stealing.
