Un long dimanche de fiançailles [A Very Long Engagement] (2004) *** (dvd) : A film from the Amelie crew about a woman searching for answers after her fiance is declared dead at the western front during WWI. Okay, but curiously uninvolving.

The Fugitive (1993) **** (cable) : Excellent taunt thriller as Harrison Ford attempts to keep away from Tommy Lee Jones while trying to find the real killer of his wife. Great performances by the two leads.
A Fistful of Dollars (1964) *** (dvd) : The first of Sergio Leone's "Man With No Name" trilogy, Clint is in fine form here, but the story is a little weak.
Treasure Planet (2002) **** (dvd) : Solid Disney animation, couple with a good adaptation of a classic story, made for a fun watch with the girls.
Prime Cut (1972) *** (dvd) : slice of 70s gangster film, with Lee Marvin trying to take out Gene Hackman. Suspect motivations all around.
