    I'd love to see Mikey and Nicky get a canon placement. It may be my favorite film from this year.

    People, this year (1976) there are two movies under the title "The Little Mermaid". With my FYC I was talking about the Czechoslovakian one directed by Karel Kachyna, not the Russian one (I have not seen that one, maybe I will).

    I was actually coming here to post about it (and my review). The Czech film is a masterpiece I highly recommend it


    In the lea of a picturesque city lies a large, pretentious theatre, one that pampers its nominees like its own bebês.
    Hi! I'm Catherine O'Hara, and if you like deserving Emmy nominees as much as I do, then you'll appreciate the craftsmanship and quality of a local actress who brings the sarcastic goodness to every line delivery and the delicious camp to her exuberant performance.
    Come see the difference good writing can make on your television.
    You'll remember the experience, and you'll remember the name:

    If somebody is looking for something light and funny that you can see with your family The 12 Tasks of Asterix could be what you're looking for. Don't get a wrong idea from other Asterix's adaptations, animated or not. This is miles ahead the best one (maybe the only good one). I remember to enjoy this one really much as a kid and I'll probably see it again for the canon.

    Love it, watched it a thousand times as a child. The mad house was the best part. Form B-65, anyone?

    It's more playful and inventive than Duelle, which I saw and wish didn't take itself as seriously as it does. The perfect balance of Céline and Julie is hard to hit, I guess, since the also supposedly playful Pont du Nord failed to me for more or less the same reasons. Lightness doesn't have to mean inanity and mystery doesn't have to mean seriousness.

    Reminder for everyone to make time to watch Harlan County, USA, one of the most visceral, thrilling, infuriating documentaries ever.

    I agree on it being the best part. Also, even if as a child I didn't like it, as an adult I also appreciate the use of the elipsis in one of the tasks. The only thing I don't like is that the last three tasks are not at the level of the rest of the movie. But I repeat, it is a great movie. Even for the ones who (still think that) don't like Asterix at all.

    Such an achievement for a first time director in her 20s.

    I am watching Coup de grace by Volker Schlöndorff. The script is nice and cool, but the cinematography is amazing!! I’m shocked this doesn’t get more recognition.

    That link doesn't work for me, but I can see one photo and it seems like it.

    To be clear, two movies with the name "The Little Mermaid" exist for 1976.

    This is the one that has been FYCed. It's in Czech, its director is Karel Kachyna and the lead actress is Miroslava Safránková:



    This is the other movie (not FYCed). It's in Russian, its director is Vladimir Bychkov and the lead actress is Galina Volchek:

    The mermaid obsession run deep in those days.

    I guess the "youngster wants to rebel against an restrictive social system by escaping to the land of freedom" really resonated

    Y’all, Duelle. More like Drool-elle because I was mesmerized, mouth agape, with its wonders.

    Is “dreams are the aquarium of the night” one of the top ten film lines, ever, too?
