We saw a terrific film (Netflix DVD) called "Trois couleurs: Bleu" ("Blue" in English). It's French with English subtitles. It stars Juliette Binoche as the widow of a famous composer. Her husband and daughter died in an automobile accident. She runs from her pain, lives alone in a not-first-class little apartment. She swims! And, there is music. The music is almost like a character in the story, popping into her consciousness when she would rather avoid it.
Blue is the first of three movies in a trilogy (Blue, White, Red). The other two are also on order from Netflix, and I'm looking forward to them.
I give this one an A. The NY Times liked it too.
