After the deflation of Zhang Zimou‘s The Flowers of War (and writing the review) I saw portions of two more films — Ole Christian Madsen‘s Superclasico and Jannicke Systad Jacobsen‘s Turn Me On, Dammit!. And then I attended a party in honor of French-language cinema at “the Lucy house” — i.e., the Spanish adobe home once owned by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
