Mark Mayerson , on his blog, was wondering why Mr Borge Ring hasn't been more influential in terms of his design style, his subject matter and his direction. I must say he was extremely influential to me .When I saw "Anna et Bella" in Annecy I was dum-struck. I didn't know such animation still existed!. A mix between Santa Claus, Orson Wells and a real Viking was my impression of him when we first worked together in 1985 on "The Big Bang", one of Picha's movies. I also worked with him on"Mr T.V", a tv show from Mr Vivian Miessen and then later on Asterix "The Big Fight" and finally at Amblin on "We're Back".
I'm a huge fan of his animation. His short movies are just wonderful, and his musical compositions are unforgettable.
I'm sure Oscar and Mirabelle agree with me.

Harold & Maude. My favorite movies often have an unconventional storyline with some unconventional actors.Ruth Gordon (Maude) was such a fantastic actress, I miss her.Once again the casting was terrific and the perfomances of all the actors truly wonderful.
