Enjoying ignorance

Last night my wife rented Amélie, last year's popular French-language film. Unlike with most films, I knew pretty much nothing about it -- I hadn't read any reviews, noticed much about its advertising, or heard about its plot. All I'd seen was a brief clip from last year's Academy Awards, where it had been nominated.

Watching a movie without any foreknowledge was an unusual treat. I should do it more often. And since you should too, I won't tell you anything else about Amélie, except that it's quite good.
