" Edward Norton" week


Pix taken from official website for [ The painted veil]

It has been an " Edward Norton" week for Jolene and me. We caught 2 of his film in a short peirod of 9 days. Ha ha
- The painted Veil
- The illustionist
Not only is he a great actor, he is also very very dashing and charming too. I only wish he would do more of those " Keeping the faith" genre. Light hearted type.
And speaking abt The painted Veil, there is a very beauitful folk song that I really like- A La Claire Fontaine. I thought it short of summarised the whole mood of the movie. Wonder would it be feature in the OST?

Beautiful movie and lovely song :)
But the song in French refers to a girl. It's a boy who sings this song for his girlfriend.

"ma douce amie" -> My sweet friend (she)

and not

"mon doux ami" --> "My sweet friend" (he), which would have fitted on the movie.

That's the only problem I find and that's why the meaning doesn't fit well on the movie.
I wonder if the director knew that when he includded it.

See you!
