What is most enjoyable in the movie is the Americana kitsch and the setting, filmed from a foreigner's perspective: the Corkscrew Saloon where the couple speak together, the bright supermarket, the hotel pool area and -- especially -- the landscapes of Death Valley.

I'm very happy about this film, despite the rumpus which hit before the Cannes Film Festival last May, when at the last moment it was not accepted into the official competition due to endless talk of a sex-filled beginning.

Today's economic doldrums do not have to last forever, and President Hollande has an opportunity to reverse this situation. But he has to move quickly and in a way that puts pragmatic, growth-oriented reforms first -- and Socialist ideology second.

Fiscal Cliffs, Depardieu and Us

On a train from Paris over the holiday, I received a 25% discount because of my age. The only way the French government can afford to give me that 25% discount is to tax. And as Depardieu's departure to the other side of the old Iron Curtain signifies, this tax can be unbearably high.

Whether in France, the UK or Hollywood, top actors and politicians have much in common. They are both performers by trade who are put under intense public scrutiny. Their careers require a huge amount of guts and stamina, and can disappear into thin air overnight for seemingly minor offenses.

Taxe à 75% retoquée, la démolition d'un symbole

Guy Carcassonne | Posted 02.28.2013 | France
Guy Carcassonne

TAXE 75% - Les Sages avaient l'embarras du choix du moyen à retenir pour justifier l'annulation. Ils ont adopté le plus simple: les impositions sur le revenu ne peuvent frapper que les foyers fiscaux; celle-ci visait non les foyers mais les individus; elle est inconstitutionnelle à ce titre, faute d'appréhender la capacité contributive réelle: un couple dont les deux membres perçoivent chacun 900.000 euros n'aurait pas été touché, alors qu'un autre couple, dans lequel l'un gagne 300.000 euros et l'autre 1,5 million, soit un total moindre, aurait dû acquitter 75% de 500.000 euros. La rupture d'égalité entre ces deux couples est manifeste et manifestement inconstitutionnelle. Est-ce à dire qu'il suffit de reprendre le dispositif en le faisant porter sur le foyer et non plus sur la personne? Ce n'est pas si simple.
