Time Goes By

DAVE.32.1-26. Who doesn't remember the scene above from the most famous of all movies? It doesn't hurt that the Marseillaise is unquestionably the most stirring of all national anthems, but the real heart-catching moment is the closeup of the female collaborator at the bar reawakened to courageous patriotism. For that instant, everyone watching is also a Frenchman.

Now: how many of you have seen this clip from the Sarkozy victory rally the other night? Pay close attention at 38 seconds in.

A trick of drama and cinema? Or is there hope, after all, for this long troubled nation? I don't know, but I know which I'd like it to be.
