Oh Canada!

Back from Toronto and some fabulous meetings for our next movie (‘Despite the Falling Snow’ since you ask…) And no, we never even got to see any movies! A few movie stars though, in hotel bars and lobbies…I am working super fast in at my desk in EP HQ today specifically so I can BLOG (remember when I used to blog 🙂 on the weekend. Have a good Friday and see you tomorrow…

    In The World Unseen, I was extremely moved by the scene between Myriam and Amina in which Lisa Ray says to Amina “Every time I see you, I wish you could stay………..Forever”. I have seen very many touching and moving scenes in many films, but I can tell you that Never, Never was I so moved. And the deliverance of those lines, the emotion in Lisa’s voice deserved an Oscar. I was so moved that I wrote these humble verses that I dedicate to you and Lisa and Sheetal. Please accept:           Forever
                                               Love is sacrifice and glory,
                                               Love is saying you are sorry,
                                               Love is caring, more than ever,
                                               For you now and then …….Forever

    You are a fantastic writer but how did you become such a great film Director. I know talent is talent, but did you improve it by studying or it was all self taught.? I have some suggestions for films that could be made on the theme of love frustration in women , are you interested.  Je vous remerci, en avance, Cher Madame
