Guilty Pleasure: Tatie Danielle

I fell in love with this dark French comedy back in the early 90s. It's the story of an elderly woman who manages to kill her caregiver, and moves in with her nephew's family in Paris. The more people try to make her happy, the meaner she is to them.

Loose translation:

Nephew: I don't think you'll be capable of keeping Tatie in July. You will come with me to Greece.

Niece: But what about Tatie?

Nephew: I'll make arrangements for her. I think I made a mistake taking her in. I want to tell you something, but you have to keep it a secret.

Niece: Of course.

Nephew: I think she's mean.

Niece: (gasps) You're right. She is mean.

N&Ns, as an aunt of 7 and great aunt to 2, they can come in all flavors, but some can be too sour. LOL

Hi Diane -

"Sour Auntie"... what a great name for a candy! Right up there with "Smarties".

I cannot see that movie without thinking of you, Steve. So glad to hear that the steroids are having a positive impact on BR's appetite. That is some good news!
