This year's Berlinale is certainly woman-centric. There are exceptional leading ladies commanding the red carpet as Juliette Binoche did on opening night, in her tuxedo-inspired white gown and fresh make up.

I'm all for films, as Jafar Panahi says in his latest Taxi, showing here in Berlinale: "All films are worth watching; it just depends on your taste." But perhaps I wish, deep down inside, as a human being, that our collective taste was just more about peace and love. Without so much blood, so many guns.

If you're keeping score at home, of the three Marvel comic-book movies so far this summer (a term I use advisedly for a season that technically doesn't start for another month), X-Men: Days of Future Past outranks Amazing Spider-Man 2 and is about on a par with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Camille Claudel 1915 is a testimony to Binoche's enormous talent, much as was the film that put Binoche in the international spotlight: Kieslowski's Blue, a similarly emotionally raw story about a woman going through extreme bereavement.

Before moving to the New York City area, I lived in London for seven years. During that period, I traveled more than two dozen times to France, a place where five- or six-week vacations are the norm and many people retire comfortably at 60 or younger.
