Playing the 1940 Nazi occupation of Paris for laughs is a risky proposition that director and co-writer Jean-Paul Rappeneau pulls off in high style. Taking refuge in a hotel in Bordeaux are a movie diva (Isabelle Adjani), a politico (Gerard Depardieu), a spy (Peter Coyote), a babe student (Virginie Ledoyan) and a young writer (Gregori Derangere is a newcomer to watch) — all thrown together by crisis and unexpected romance. It's sexy, suspenseful fun, and gorgeous-looking to boot.

    “Road to Nowhere”

    Talking Heads | 1985

    A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
