New Ozon (II)

Ozon's Ricky now has its (his?) own site, though only "en francais" for the time being.
Looks very good. I just finished reading “Moth,” the Rose Tremain story the film's based on. An enigmatic, intriguing piece, and in fact the whole Darkness of Wallis Simpson collection is very briliant. It's exciting that Ozon continues to choose non-obvious adaptation projects such as this one, a contrast to the endless round of Austens that Britain serves up. The Dardennes-and-Cronenberg-hybrid comparisons seem right for Ricky and it'll be exciting to see what he does with this superbly weird story on screen.
