Harold & Maude / Tatie Danielle : Two films to see...

Saw a couple of wonderful films over Easter - Harold and Maude, which is a kind of precurser and surely an influence on the films of Wes Anderson (Rushmore and, particularly, The Royal Tenenbaums) and which has a gorgeous soundtrack by (ahem) Cat Stevens. The other film, Tatie Danielle, concerns an elderly French woman who goes to live with her nephew and his family and wreaks havoc. Imagine Principal Skinner's mother in The Simpsons and multiply by ten; a hilarious portrait of horridness. And enough cruelty to dogs in an hour and a half to traumatise even the most half-hearted of animal-lovers.
