If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

Les petites mouchoirs (“Little White Lies”) (2010) – When a movie is directed by an actor who was the lead male in my absolute favourite film (Guillaume canet, Jeux d’enfants) and features the female lead of said favourite movie (who just so happens to be his partner, the ever so beautiful Marion Cotillard), I knew I needed to watch it. It did not disappoint. There are a few movies out there with the same sort of concept – one member of a group of friends dies or is nearing death, leaving the others to band together (and possibly reunite) as a result. However, Les petites mouchoirs isn’t as conventional as the others. It features a random and not so random story of unrequited love, the struggles of moving on from past loves, owning up to past mistakes and facing the repercussions of current mistakes. Yes, I cried. But, to be fair I cry in most movies. – R.
