'If you say baseball one more time, Zéro is going to shoot you.'

A cinematic masterpiece has been born! Renata, Jennifer and I finished off our Traditional Easter Sunday with a kebab and a movie. We went to see Wanted, wherein a band of French braqueurs including Gérard Depardieu, Johnny Hallyday, and an adorable gun-toting Renaud, set off for Chicago for a heist. They wind up with the FBI, the Chicago Mafia, and a Latino gang all after them, and hijinks and gunfights ensue. It is wonderful and perfect, and yet not really a good movie. Nonetheless, I suggest it highly.

The weird thing about the movie is that it seems to have been made especially for us. I don't know who had the idea to make a movie with Johnny and Renaud speaking English, but we giggled and sighed and laughed at both the French in-jokes (Renaud and Johnny fighting over the radio, for example) and the purely American things like the take-off on Judge Judy. De toutes les façons, we really appreciate that someone made this movie just for us and I hope that others will enjoy it too.
