My Dinner With Andre, good article on a brilliant film, that does come along at the right time, and is unforgettable. Time to watch it again Pistachioville Take note!
Films have a funny way of entering one’s life at just the right time. Take Louis Malle’s 1981 gem, My Dinner with Andre, for example.
