This Saturday night's PBS indie wasn't super-indie, i.e. as
low budget as films from the recent past, but it was very French, and more
importantly it met two very relevant criteria to my needs.
First, the use of retarded. At least in the translation. I
didn't catch the actual French, but obviously it's not a cognate.
Because then you get into this situation.
There was also some emotional barfing, but I won't say why
in case you ever decide to watch The Day I Saw Your Heart (Et soudain tout le
monde me manque).
