Well, thing is, I don't really leave the realm of Fantasy fiction to interact with reality. So it's pretty hard to think about it in 'reality' terms to me, and it's not the bokbunjajoo & yebisu flowing though my body that would disagree. But I guess it borders on feminism if you include those terms to the story.

Hi fellow frenchy
A friend bought one at the Tang Frères store in Paris XIIIe (the biggest one located at avenue d'Ivry), but it was a few years ago already. I'm not 100 % sure that they still sell some nowadays -I used public transportations for my last trips there, so except for flavoured candy/wafer/ice cream... since I couldn't bring back the real fruit due to its smell, I did not think about making sure that they do-, but I believe that among Tang Frères & Paris Store, which is really close to T.F., there should be some available.
I didn't try it in it's dry form. *noted on the little book of to do things* But it's indeed probably far better fresh, from what I could grasp.
That must have been nice tasting this kind of food in this context where did you taste it ?
A friend of mine is from indonesia and she invited us to her wedding there. They love durian there (it's even kind of addictive according to them) so I had to try :-)
so you like fruits which smell like dirty socks
and you're pround of it
nevertheless, I have to give you credits for your brave attitude
We are french, we already have smelly cheeses. A stinky fruit is no problem...
^ Indeed, it helps a lot
Well, actually Ancy, while I like the smell of good old cheese, I'm not really fond of Durian's smell, it's its taste that appeals to me. I ate this once :
Frankly, I was on the verge of when I opened it.

Fin du message.
are you shuuuree?
Nice range of films you've seen there, what are your top 5 movies? that'd you'd never get bored of seeing.
And how did you find Drive? I really loved it and particularly the soundtrack. I love The Mask; one of the first films I saw in french; long time ago .
Thank you . I wouldn't get bored of seeing any of the movies I listed earlier, but if I have to give rise to five of those, then it would be :Quote:
_ A Scene at the Sea by Takeshi Kitano. Probably the most soothing of the lot, not only did Joe Hisaishi orchestrate the Soundtrack, but there is also my favourite japanese actor playing (Susumu Terajima), and the sea...
_ Made in Britain by David Leland & Alan Clarke. Tim Roth. And the theme is both powerful and inspiring to me.
_ The Sunset Limited adapted by Tommy Lee Jones. McCarthy's book was brilliant, and TLJ adapted it almost perfectly imho. Another great theme, and two stunning actors (TLJ and Samuel L. Jackson) giving Life and Soul to it.
_ Green Snake by Tsui Hark. Because of Joey Wong mainly, and because of the whole dreamy realm created.
_ 2046 by Wong Kar Wai. Exactly like Green Snake, except 'Joey' becomes 'Faye'.
I found it really, really good. Enough to go watch it a second time at the theater, and I almost never go to the theater. I learned about it at the end of 2010, and I was eager to watch it. Not only because of Ryan Gosling & Nicolas Winding Refn, whom are imho always good news for an incoming movie, but also and above all because of the soundtrack. Nightcall & A Real Hero are songs I knew beforehand (following the Valérie Collective since 2005~2006), so I expected a lot from Drive. It did not disappoint one bit.Quote:
Love The Mask too
And french dubbing wasn't too shabby in the 90s.

I'll be sure to check out those films' synopsis and find a liking to any of them.Quote:
Ryan Gosling was really good in that film; one of his best roles imo. Those 2 songs are also my favourites and I need to get the album. I really liked the way the film was directed and the 80s feel to it. The Pace of the film was handled really well too, with the increase violence and the the music went well with it.Quote:
French dubbing for movies has never been a problem for me, the problem I found was in Anime that later when I learnt more about Japanese culture and a teeny bit about the language most of the stuff didn't make sense. Prime example is Fist of the Northern Star with the whole "Haut Couteau" businessQuote:
What do you mean by "I need to get the album" ? Buying or dling ? Should it be the later, it shouldn't be too hard to find a working link (I'll check on mikkisays if some are still active).
Refn did a great job indeed. And the violent scenes are something, he didn't compromise on it (heck, he never does, the Pusher trilogy is good example) which added a lot of intensity to the movie, given that most of the time it is kinda quiet (or should I say subtle). The 'quietness' of the soundtrack gave birth to a few awkward situations in the theater, both times
Ahahah, yeah the dubbing for Ken le Survivant was completely nonsensical at timesQuote:
You know, this video makes me laugh and feel shame at the same time I saw this is the first time a few years back cos my brother lives in Belgium and he's always sending me links to stupid videos like this.Quote:
