Oh, that was SO good!

It's Victoria Day in Canada today, it's cold and rainy and perfect for curling up on the couch with hot chocolate and a movie. And so I've just finished watching Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet for the very first time and loved every nanosecond of it. Absolutely wonderful! And I mean that in its original meaning of full of wonder. Another Jeunet piece of filmed perfection. :-)

And so glad that, even though it's an English-language movie, Dominique Pinon was in it ... it's not a proper Jeunet film if Pinon isn't in it somewhere.

P.S. Knew much of the movie was filmed in southern Alberta; just took a peek at the locations list and yes! that WAS the High Level Bridge, longest and highest trestle bridge in the world, near the beginning of the film (I lived quite close to this bridge when I was in Lethbridge and the sound and vibration sensations of being under it when a train is crossing are something that one never forgets.
