Ugh...several movies. People go for these. Shudder. Seeing his mug on the left as I type here, he does look mansome. But AFAIK that's not the source of the praise, I don't think we know his face in the US.

And his brother, co-writer and lead actor, Denis.

The movie that wasted my time: Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train
Not a director, but one of the stars in three of these movies that gave me a big frowny face. By three different directors.

I have loved so many French movies, I get excited when one comes to the US, with praise. I wish I could say I like every French movie, and filmmaker, but that wouldn't be too likely, I guess.

Here are a bunch of people whose films I found, generally, annoying and stupid. But which have come with a *lot* of critical praise. Sometimes I think "oh, it's those two guys", but in fact, when I sort through some French movies I really hated, there's several. So I'm trying this list, to make it easier to remember. I can steer away quickly and avoid destructive grinding of my dental work. Hopefully.

I'll be really happy, if they go on to make some movies I like. But it'll take a lot of testimony, by people I know very well, to get me to try. :)
