2. Exactly-- when I think Brazil
I think the movie first, Pele second, samba next, and Commie Pinko Dirtbag after that.

3. Great movie ! And the song is very catchy:
Brazil...
Where hearts were entertaining June
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly murmured someday soon...
We kissed...
And clung together
Then...
Tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away *
With still a million things to say
Now...
When twilight dims the skies above **
Recalling thrills of our love
There's one thing I'm certain of
Return...
I will...
to old...
BRAZIL.

4. Do you have Blacks, too?
Washington (Der Spiegel) It was Condoleezza Rice, national security advisor, who helped her boss out of the embarassing situation. During a conversation between the presidents of the U.S. and Brazil, George W. Bush, 55, and Fernando Henrique Cardoso, 71, Bush bewildered his colleague with the question, Do you have blacks, too?

Rice, 47, noticing how astonished the Brazilian was, saved the day by telling Bush, Mr. President, Brazil probably has more blacks than the USA. Some say its the country with the most blacks outside Africa. Later, Brazilian President Cardoso said, regarding Latin America, Bush was still in his learning phase.

8. Must be the Director's Cut!
Although there is no way I could choose just one movie.

15. To this day
I cannot look at Saran Wrap without getting a feeling of vague suffocation and the urge to avoid plastic surgery. :P
