I joined Zip.ca on the One-DVD-a-month-plan, which ends up being cheaper than Rogers...AND most importantly, I can get obscure titles which are not available elsewhere. The DVD's are delivered in the mail and returned the same way. So far the process has been wonderful.
I love foreign films and sub-titled movies and this program really fills the bill. I had read "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" by Muriel Barbery and was delighted to know that there is a french film "Le Hérisson". The musical score is by Gabriel Yared who is also a movie music guru of sorts, having done the scores to many popular releases.
I found the movie adorable, for it's quirkiness and wonderful character study. I think my artsy friends who enjoy journaling, photography, and drawing will all find something intriguing in this one.
