"It's a Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes."

We can only hope that the Charleston International Film Festival will strive to bring us lines as memorable as that classic. (I'm also partial to "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.)

In a nod to our very own Frenchman, Nico Romo, I shall plug one of the film fest's Saturday evening features,"Black Night is Falling." It's a French drama directed by Kook Ewo. Here's the synopsis from the website, which I have to stay made me giggle. Marie, sitting on the windowsill, is reading a magazine. The scene is soothed by the atmosphere of the city: noise from cars, shouts from children who are playing upstairs, the life of the neighborhood... Suddenly, a telephone rings. Gripping, right? Anywho, may I suggest a Saturday night out on the town: say, dinner and movie? Movie then dinner? You decide.

P.S. Don't forget to visit our pals at the Charleston Farmer's Market this weekend. And, SCENE!
