    But I fear ‘68-related French films are just costume dramas for people who think themselves too intellectual for costume dramas. (Bonjour!)

    Really enjoyed ‘Something in the Air’ at cinema yesterday. Both admired the ‘68 idealism and found them endearingly naive. A good balance.

    @paulpod I assume that refers to the article I read the headline of and rolled eyes at before moving on. Amazing what ppl get paid to write.
