    The answers to my two questions were :-

    19 – Novocento / (101 Dalmatians – Let the right One In)
    20 – √ Les Quatre Cent Coups

    Don’t know what I am going to do now – had this to look forward to every day for the last month.

    Thanks for all your efforts

    Must have missed your clues Mike (and had been trying to work out ways of putting old Antoine Doinel in there somehow) so sorry for not rising to the bait there. Maybe you should join in with our Rutland pub quiz idea…OR, wait for the next one, which won’t be long, heh heh heh…

    To be honest I was only trying to second guess the next day. Trying so hard I didn’t get the title of 18 right. Alison got the Novocento etc. films and I was always looking at 400 blows. Always liked Truffaut especially a school film club viewing of Fahrenheit 451 and later seeing Day for Night and its french title explaining a film technique. Smoke and mirrors or magic as in the lantern. You trump me with the character name and I am sure you didn’t have to look it up (IMDB – never leave home without it!). What ‘s involved in the Rutland Pub Quiz?
