The Girl On The Bridge

Girl on the Bridge

Circus tricks…everyone wants to learn them! When I was little I used to watch Circus of the Stars and dream of being on the trapeze like my childhood hero, Mr. Balki Bartokomous. Like many other things, you get older and change your mind. I’d still like to fly through the air like a spider monkey, but these days I’d rather learn how to throw some knives like my other hero, Mr. Jack Burton.

La fille sur le pont (The Girl on the Bridge) is a movie about a woman, played by Vanessa Paradis, who is about to end her life by jumping off a bridge. A man who is a knife thrower, convinces her not to and she becomes the target in his act. Sounds hot right? And it was, ONLY because of Vanessa Paradis, but it was a bore! It actually reminded us of a perfume commercial so we would whisper-shout “OBSESSION! by Calvin Klein” at every scene. Might make a good drinking game somehow. Screencaps are sexy though.

How about you? Any circus tricks you’ve always wanted to learn? Or maybe you know some already! PS. If you’re a knife thrower and want to teach a feisty Filitaliana girl some tricks, please let me know.

I’ve always wanted to be a trapeze artist, or a girl who wears the big headdresses while doing acrobatics on a pony.

This really was a great movie, except for the knife throwing on the train scene, which was completely retarded.

Did you know Balki (aka Bronson Pinchot) lives in Scranton, PA? When I lived out there, I used to see him at the local Borders all the time. Nice guy! :)
