So, in the heat of this Summer, the like of which we haven't seen since maybe '76 and the standpipes, with all the water issues surrounding higher home park, a good time to download probably the best films ever made re the politics of water, it's shortages, and local parochial corruption

Jean de Florette, and it's sequel Manon des Sources are the two must see French art house that transfer to mainstream, as did chocolat in a hybrid sense.
We all remember Gerard Depardieu, check out how he and his deformity get on leaving the city to make it as a country small holder, almost Thomas Hardy Clym Yeobright stuff for those classical novel fans. Urbane gerard meets village interests and animal essence. Emotionally disturbing if you have a heart, but the two films need to be seen as one story, as the daughter returns, animal fully intact, representing irresistible nature. Classic classic French language cinema at it's best. First saw these films at the Looe St art centre that still runs to this day. Theses films are up there with Citizen Kane. Download them now.

I have always meant to catch up with them.

I once watched about an hour of the middle of Jean de Florette and was totally mesmerised but circumstances didn't allow me to see it to the end and I missed the start!

JdF was widely pastiched by the Stella Artois adverts a while later but that aside the heat, dust and aridity just pours forth from the screen and the Depardieu character is totally beguiling.

They are both, well JdF is any way, proper quality despite 'em speaking forrin.

Watched the first Kingsman film earlier, easy on the brain and rather enjoyable I thought. The fight scene in the church was hilarious.

Great film and the second one is enjoyable as well.

The Hitman and his bodyguard is a good one also.

With reference to other contemporary stuff and the obvious coming nasty battle of authoritarian conservatism and liberal values across many areas of the planet, get yourself a bit of Pan's Labyrinth.
Many of us think fiction the best way to portray real underlying truths of human existence, and how  real understanding  is a sweep, not a detail. Filmed in the most beautiful manner and style of another master story teller, Tim Burton. A story of the immediate post civil war Spain and fascism. illustrated in an often spiritual manner including the forces we don't see..  A timely reminder
