Miracle on 34th Street
Kris Kringle: “Oh Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind… and that’s what’s been changing. That’s why I’m glad I’m here, maybe I can do something about it.”
Fred Gailey: “Is it true that you’re the owner of one of the biggest department stores in New York City?” Mr. R. H. Macy: “THE biggest!”
[Doris is trying to convince Susan there is no Santa Claus]
Susan Walker: “But when he spoke Dutch to that girl…”
Doris Walker: “Susan, I speak French, but that doesn’t make me Joan of Arc.”
Doris: “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don’t you see? It’s not just Kris that’s on trial, it’s everything he stands for. It’s kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles.”
Susan Walker: “You mean it’s like, ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.’”
Doris Walker: “Yes.”
Susan Walker: “I thought so.”
Fred: “That baseball player sure looks like a giant to me.”
Susan: “Sometimes people grow very large, but that’s abnormal.”
Fred: “I’ll bet your mother told you that, too.”
Kris Kringle: “Now wait a minute, Susie. Just because every child can’t get his wish that doesn’t mean there isn’t a Santa Claus.”
Kris Kringle: “If that’s normal, I don’t want it!”
Kris Kringle: “You know what the imagination is?”
Susan Walker: “Oh, sure. That’s when you see things, but they’re not really there.”
Kris Kringle: “Well, that can be caused by other things, too.”
Doris Walker: “I was wrong when I told you that, Susie. You must believe in Mr. Kringle and keep right on doing it. You must have faith in him.”
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Schroeder: This is the music I’ve selected for the Christmas play. [Schroeder plays Fur Elise]
Lucy Van Pelt: What kind of Christmas music is ‘that’?
Schroeder: Beethoven Christmas music.
Lucy Van Pelt: What has Beethoven got to do with Christmas? Everyone talks about how “great” Beethoven was. Beethoven wasn’t so great.
[Schroeder stops playing]
Schroeder: What do you mean Beethoven wasn’t so great?
Lucy Van Pelt: He never got his picture on bubble gum cards, did he? Have you ever seen his picture on a bubble gum card? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who’s never had his picture on bubble gum cards?
Schroeder: Good grief.

One of the best films I’ve watched this year are ‘Reconstruction’ and ‘Allegro’ by Christoffer Boe. “It is a film, it is all a construction. But even so, it hurts.” “It is very important that you understand the movie is actually playful. It likes being a movie, it’s playing with how you can tell a story, and it doesn’t really take itself too seriously.”
The movie about how people do not take seriously the things that may happen every day. Perhaps it’s nor right, perhaps it’s so. The film looks like reconstruction a dream – you sleep and you don’t. You make a choice and you cant do that.
Love is like a dream but it’s not in our power to change the way it goes. After graduating from the Danish Film School in 2001, Christoffer Boe’s student film Anxiety played at the 2002 festival, where it won a prize from French critics, and then Boe returned to the Croisette the following year with his debut feature, Reconstruction. A dazzlingly inventive and playful film, Reconstruction’s tale of love and parallel universes in Copenhagen beguiled critics and was awarded both the Camera D’Or and the Prix Regards Jeune. Boe was celebrated as international cinema’s most precocious wunderkind, and his film played all around the world, plundering prizes – including the prestigious FIPRESCI Director of the Year award at San Sebastian Film Festival – wherever it went.
Next his film ‘Allegro” is also coming the way of love but with a lot more melancholy. Ansering on the question – Were those films a reflection on what was going on in director’s life at the time, Christoffer Boe said: ‘My movies have gone in the exact opposite direction of my own life. I’ve become more and more happy, and my movies have become more and more depressive. Offscreen is off the charts in depression and hatred. I don’t know how the relationship works between that, but it seems like there is an outlet in my cinema for some feelings that I don’t have in my personal life.’
If you could travel back in time are you sure you can ewmind all those you loved and all thoose who loved you.
- ‘What’s the meaning of this?… Do you remember this woman?…You remember something?
- I forgot it.
FM: Are you ever totally satisfied with your films? Reconstruction was such a huge success and seemed to be universally loved, but how did you feel about it?
Boe: I really don’t look back. When I make a movie, it’s a closure on something I want to deal with, but I don’t look back on when I was very successful. Obviously I tend to look at what people don’t like. There was a lot of stuff that people said about Reconstruction and even more so about Allegro. Obviously I try to listen to that because there might be something wrong with the way that I work with some of the ideas, but I don’t look back in the sense that it’s never Le Mépris. It’s never Godard.
Une femme douce / A Gentle Creature / 1969 / is the first color Robert Bresson’s film sees a marked change in the director’s style from the cold austerity and intensity of his earlier works, such as Au hasard Balthazar (1966) and Mouchette (1967). Although the film deals with familiar Bresson themes of suicide and domestic repression, his approach in this film is far more accessible, making the film attractive to a mainstream cinema audience (for perhaps for the last time in Bresson’s film-making career). Bresson cast a successful model Dominique Sanda in the role of the ill-fated heroine of the film, allegedly for the sound of her voice rather than her more obvious attributes. Sanda’s celebrity may have been another important factor which contributed to the film’s popularity.
