The story I heard (from a grad student of mine) is that Tarantino used
to work at a video store and that one of his favorite films was
AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS, but he had trouble remembering the title and
used to recommend it to patrons as "that reservoir movie."

          conscience, and the prudence never to practice
