Ok, I've been wanting to post this for a while. I finally do.
My mum's been to New York, and i asked her if she could get me Life After Tomorrow, and she found it! that was back a month or two ago (by the time i was posting with Ron, when i was in Israel, anyway)

So, I was very excited of course, and I watched it, and I thought it was amazing!

Fisrt the DVD itself looks very attracting (sp), the picture is great, the design, and that's important cause it's basicly the first thing you see.

Then the big amount of bonus, it's cool that there are so many, and all very interesting! i especially enjoyed to see the former orphans perform together as adults
and the "Annie museum thing" too, when i saw the name of the man (wait, i have a doubt now.. it was Jon Merill, wasn't it ? oops :/ ) i was like, "hey, he's on the forum! (apologizes if that's not him, i just suddenly have a big doubt). What an amazing collection anyway!

And, of course, the documentary, was really amazing! i was suposed to watch just the beggining because it was late, but I watched everything because i couldn't stop! you don't get bored a single moment, realy. and it's very interesting. the only thing, it would have been easier for me to understand with english subtitles, but i guess it's not necessary to add some when you release it in the US and in english, obviously. but i got the most of it

i just wish it was longer, which might mean that it's the perfect lenght (sp). (not too much, you could still see more, if i make sense :/)

so anyway, i loved it obviously, and thought i might tell Julie

Yes, that's me. Since then I have moved out of state 1,000 km away, so I have sold off a lot of my Annie collection and put the rest in storage, but at the time LAT was filmed, I still had my whole collection displayed. Glad you enjoyed LAT; I too enjoyed seeing the women performing the songs they had enjoyed so much as kids in Annie. I bet there aren't too many Broadway shows that still have such an enthusiastic following by fans 25 years after closing!

Wow, thank you so much for your enthusiastic review. I am so happy that you enjoyed the film and were able to get a copy from the U.S. Sorry I have not been able to find a French distributor, which is why it is not available with subtitles. In France, do you know of a particular arts channel on TV or pay movie channel that might air documentaries?

The most famous one is called Planète, it's a group of 3 or 4 different documentary channels: http://www.lachaineplanete.ca/
We also have a French version of Discovery: http://www.discoverychannel.fr/emea/homepage.htm
of Real Time: http://www.realtime.fr/emea/homepage.htm
and of National Geographic: http://www.nationalgeographic.fr/
There's also one called Odyssée: http://www.odyssee.com/
and probably the least famous one: http://www.encyclopedia.fr/
We also have a channel called Mezzo where you can see lots of ballets and concerts and the occasional documentary: http://www.mezzo.tv/?language=en
There are other documentary channels but they only deal with travelling.
All these channels are only available through satellite or cable.

you're welcome

the only channel i can think of is Arte, but I know only 4 channels (the ones everyone have, you don't have to pay for them)
so i guess Cecile knows better
I did see a documantary about Annie about 10 years ago on a french channel, by the time Brittny (sp sorry) Kissinger
became Annie just after Johana Paciti (sp again sorry).

btw, while searching about Annie in the Israeli version of google, I saw that Life After Tomorrow was broadcast in the Israeilen TV as well! dunno if it was an israeli channel, or if they got it through another channel, but i know it was on the tv programm

Yes, "Life After Tomorrow" has aired on TV in Israel. It's one of the countries that has bought the film.

Canada and South Africa, that I know of. I'm supposed to have a meeting with my foreign distributor this week to get an update.
