Movie - The Lord of

Movie - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of
the King
(Gaumont Grand Écran Italie, Paris, 9:10pm)

Movie on DVD - Charade

Movie on DVD - Charade A delightful movie,

Movie - Pas sur la

Movie - Pas sur la Bouche (Ciné Cité les
Halles, Paris, 7:40pm) A first-rate adaptation of the operetta by André Barde
and Maurice Yvain, directed by Alain Resnais.


Play / Comedy - Stones

Play / Comedy - Stones in his Pockets (New

but that gimmick does nothing to hide the shallowness of the characters and the
thinness of the plot.
