Hey Leonard - you have to find and rent "The Moving Man" - you will see wonderful German comedy (farce) which we never see here - but it's great! (Berveckte Man?) It's wonderful, from teh 90s - I saw it in a wonderful little screening room that used to be in Carnegie Hall

I'm told the Germans have a busy film industry and lots of good movies we never see.
