Wie kann das sein, dass ich nie Die Bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant angeschaut habe? Lustig. Es ist perfekt fuer jemand die an alte Lieben nach dennkt.  [How can it be that I have never seen The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant?  It is perfect for someone who thinks on old loves.]

I love to hear people speak German. It's so much sexier than American English. The film by Rainer Werner Fassbinder is "dedicated to those who here would like to be Marlene." Die Marlene sagt eigentlich nichts aber sieht alles, weisst alles. Marlene appears in every scene but says nothing. To wish to be her means to wish to be invisible.

Perhaps I should build a house like a studio and decorate it like Petra's apartment with a large Italian mural and naked mannequins. And a bed in the living room, perhaps.

I laughed loud and long. I'm laughing still.

I was going to speculate on whether or not this would make a good opera, but it has already been made an opera and presented at the ENO. The plot is definitely a chick flick. As a movie it is perfect.
