Okay, so I had just finished watching Humanité, unfortunately the only free stream I could find online was one that didn't come with English subtitles. So I had to download them separately and read them as the movie was rolling on my screen, thank goodness for at least that. If I hadn't found the subtitles this film would have been even more art housey than it already was, I would have had to use my imagination as to the dialogue because I don't speak a lick of French.Yes the Rathbone versions were good probably the best. I did like the Peter Cushing Hound of The Baskerviles with Christopher Lee playing Lord Baskerville from about 1959 I think. Flatliners was so bad that I didn't bother with the recent remake !
Watched an odd Euro movie from 1999 called Humanite directed by Bruno Dumont, arthouse stuff, very long but watchable about a provincial policeman trying to solve a crime, lots of staring into space and long pauses etc..........had to hit the fast forward a few times but it was interesting enough to encourage me to check out some of his other movies in the future but definitely not one for mainstream tastes.
You were right, there was a lot of staring into space going on (at one point there were 5 minutes straight of no talking at all - mon Dieu!), but this allowed me to keep up with reading.
I liked that there was no background music and the scenery was lovely, it looked like a nice place to ride a bike. The ending was a bit of a twist, all throughout the film the killer was merely being an immature, obnoxious brat, it's not clear to me why he would have killed the little girl. But, all in all I thought it was good, but definitely not for people who aren't fans of art house.
