I saw No Songs of Love at a German film festival the other day. It was much better than I expected. Though somewhat sad and depressing, it had some very funny moments and was very well acted, produced and directed. See it if you ever have the chance. :)

Those who enjoyed the Three Colours Trilogy should also check out Kieslowski's earlier film, La Double vie de Veronique, which has just been released on DVD in France and the UK.
Yes, I enjoyed that, though it must have been over 10 years ago when I saw it at the cinema. It's a shame films like this take an age for a DVD release, if at all.

Yep, it is frustrating. I think there were some licensing issues with Veronique that didn't affect Kieslowski's other films.

For another great dose of Kieslowski, check out The Decalogue. Greatness!

I can't wait to see Art School Confidential myself. Even in some of his more "throwaway" comic ideas, Daniel Clowes came up with enough fertile ideas to make films for years and years. Come on, pointillist clown!
