Thanks to all A2 Film students for their hard work, effort and support this year. It has been most appreciated. I hope the results in August are what you expected.
I look forward to hearing of your continued success in the future.

The pastiche of the names of places in the title, like the pastiche of the two unrelated stories in the film, helps us to blur geographical divisions and discredit referentiality.

Also useful for Film Noir and French New Wave.
