    Agreed - I think Becker is sorely underrated.

    A funny thing happened, I thought Casque D’Or translated as Golden Barrel or Golden Cask, the subtitle translation was Golden Marie. Later I found out Casque D’Or meant The Golden Helmet, which is an infinitely better title! When I found out what it really meant everything snapped into focus! The whole movie is about the fascination for Marie by all the men and her golden helmet of blonde hair is the beacon that attracts men onto the rocky reefs of reality. An incredible film, favorite of Truffaut and many others.

    I am a strange character.. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my erotic and godlike trombone playing and I cook Thirty Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru. Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single handedly defended a small village in the Amazon from a horny and ferocious army of ants. I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries.If it wasnt for me we’d still be fighting world war one. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.I shovel snow in the summer.I’ve been known to outdrink numerous camels. I am a ruthless bookie. deaf people can hear me. I don’t perspire. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer, I toured New Jersey. I bat 400. Children trust me. I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy.I was actually the first man on the moon. I once read Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week and when I do sleep I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me. I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends to let off steam I participate in full contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a toaster oven. I breed prize winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff diving competitions in montevideo, and spelling bees in bulgaria. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open heart surgery and I have spoken with Elvis. I am strange but definetly not a stranger to you.
