    I watched this movie last night. It was good, and a nice change from many these days. It has a mystical theme, and is a love story. One thing I particularly liked was the scenery. Since it took place in two states, the landscape was diverse, and although I found the girl a bit annoying at times, overall, I liked the movie. When I saw that Joss Whedon was the writer, I knew I'd probably enjoy it, and I was right about that. Here's a link to some information about the film and a short trailer: In Your Eyes and here's additional information on Joss Whedon, in case anyone's interested. Joss Whedon

    Yes Diane I watched that a few months ago and liked it a lot, as you say something a bit different. It reminded me of another similar movie I saw some years ago, but can't recall the title at the moment.

    Terry, If you remember the name of the other movie, let me know. I like the concept. For some reason, I've always loved the idea of communicating mentally, so the movie was just my style. I also loved seeing the New England landscape, assuming that's where those scenes were actually filmed.

    Yes I will Diane, I am pretty sure it was a foreign, (European) movie.

    As long as it's got subtitles, I'm fine with watching a foreign movie. I can understand a little French and Spanish, but subtitles definitely help. Occasionally in the past, when I had more energy and was more mentally alert, I would watch a foreign language show and see how much information I could derive from context, rather than language. That was always fun. These days, the chronic pain and fatigue tax me mentally so that I don't have much left over for things of that nature.

    The Double Life of Veronique

    Diane this isn't the movie I was thinking of but I love this one, it explores metaphysical ideas and more, it is a complex movie and I have a copy on DVD which I have watched several times, and gain something extra each time I see it. It's Polish and by my favourite director Kieslowski.

    I am not sure about US copyrights but Hulu say they have it for US ip addresses only. http://www.hulu.com/watch/510290

    Trailer



    Krzysztof Kieślowski’s international breakthrough remains one of his most beloved films, a ravishing, mysterious rumination on identity, love, and human intuition. Irène Jacob is incandescent as both Weronika, a Polish choir soprano, and her double, Véronique, a French music teacher. Though unknown to each other, the two women share an enigmatic, emotional bond, which Kieślowski details in gorgeous reflections, colors, and movements. Aided by Slawomir Idziak’s shimmering cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner’s haunting, operatic score, Kieślowski creates one of cinema’s most purely metaphysical works. The Double Life of Véronique is an unforgettable symphony of feeling.

    Thanks @Terry Page, that looks interesting. I still need to set up Hulu on the blu-ray downstairs, which is probably where I'd watch that. This cord cutting is a definite process. I'm currently attempting to clear off my DVR and watch a few live shows before I make the cut, and once I do, I'll be almost exclusively watching Netflix and Hulu, so will try to look for this. Artsy films aren't shown in the area where I live, since people seem to prefer more mainstream ones, but they were quite prevalent back home, so I still watch them occasionally.

    No I don't think I ever gave you Veronique, Three Colours I think you saw all three, you may be thinking of Julie Delpy who lives in the US now and starred in the three Before Sunrise..... ..........series. ?

    Yes before sunrise was great!

    In Veronique is there a scene where she's on a bus and sees someone that looks like her?

    Gosh I forget movies I've watched so quickly...but once I start watching again I'll remember it.

    Yes it is
    I find I have to watch a movie a second time before it lodges in my mind, after three or more takes I can remember most of the scenes and back stories.
