A brief encounter with greatness
Last night, after an emotional screening of Rodrigue Jean's moving Lost Song there was a party held at one of the local festival hotspots.  There, Rodrigue, one of this country's best filmmakers, introduced me to two cinematic geniuses, thus causing this supposed experienced broadcast professional to lose his ability to form a coherent sentence.  The Dardenne brothers, who are here with their latest piece of awesome Le Silence de Lorna (pictured), were gracious and polite in meeting this starry eyed programmer.  It's in these moments that I wish life was scripted, because I'm pretty sure I would have said something better than - "I love your movies" - I mean c'mon, who doesn't?  Hopefully I'll have something better to say next time I meet heroes of mine.

See you in the theatre.
