Sometimes it's really strange what cinema can do. It can transport us to another place and time, give us adventures beyond our comprehension, or it can make us voyeurs into the everyday life of average people. And that is exactly what My Dinner With Andre does. It sits us down at a table with two men at very different stages in their lives. We spend an hour and a half with them eating dinner, catching up. There is no grand external plot or action to the film, only internal and emotional character development. The film is mesmerizing in it's dialogue and the actors use great subtleties to reveal a second layer of context. It's strange how minimal a movie can be and at the same time leave you with a great fulfillment.

Worst. Movie. Ever. Basically a really really REALLY bad version of Godfather.
