Mental backdating
Jacques COULARDEAU | OLLIERGUES France | 10/27/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Take a stroll in New York and you will dream of it forever and ever. That's what this video is all about, to make you dream of the city, its streets, its museums, its parks, its buildings, old and new, and of course its people in their daily being and existence. Cafés, restaurants, stores, theaters, and all kinds of activities including many museums of course. It insists on diversity and the cultivated and even required differences between and among the people. Ethnic differences with the Chinese of Chinatown, or the Jews and the Blacks, the Irish and the Italians, and so many other Russians or French people. You will not be surprised that the Grenouille is French since all Frenchies are also a froggies jumping and hopping in some pond. The most surprising though is that all the skyscrapers are there standing tall and high, including the ghosts of the Twin Towers. It is impressive to see this skyline dominated by these two massive towers standing out against the smaller buildings more or less gathering around them. That sure is also amazing when we remember what happened to them and how empty the sky looks today without these two giant colossuses watching ,over the herd of all the multifarious New Yorkers. Take a dip in Central park dreaming of Hair, dry up in Washington Square fantasizing about Fritz the Cat, and then just take a plane and go visit Broadway hoping to meet King Kong or to spend a night at the museum.
