  1. Loved this movie, thanks for posting the quotes, had forgotten about them, except for the bird, the seed and the shit. For some reason that would pop into my head periodically. 🙂


    • That movie was filmed in the parts of Romania from where my folks are: beautiful places, with good people. I’m happy you found that worthy. I watch the movie from time to time, with respect and profound sadness regarding the state of human civilization.


      • I remember hearing it was filmed in part of Romania. I also remember there being a bit of an uproar about it being filmed there. 🙂 People can be so funny at times.

        I love the movie! I don’t know how many times I have watched it! I would watch it again but my brother borrowed my dvd player and hasn’t brought it back yet. 😦


      • Get your player back, play it on the computer, and check out the interviews at location, and the Bran Castle.


      • Well, I have to get my player back. Right now all I have to use is my little netbook, no player included and my normal laptop quit working a few weeks ago, so I can’t use the player in that one. 😦 I am gonna have to remind my brother, I will watch the extras too! 🙂 Which I haven’t done yet.
