I completely agree. The soundtrack for "Ascenseur pour lechafaud" is a great work of art. I discovered it when I lived in Brussels. It always makes me long for a cigarette and a glass of Calvados. For years now I skip the cigarette but I can still enjoy the brandy. I must listen to it again tomorrow. Thanks for reminding me of it.
