In order to achieve true cinephile status you must spend some
time watching the classic Italian World War II-era neorealist films
of the great Vittorio De Sica. If you've already seen his
devastating masterpiece The Bicycle Thief, then move on to one of
one of his lesser known but equally excellent dramas, The Children
Are Watching Us.
The title alone is a serious guilt trip, De Sica's
condemnation of immoral adult behavior that ends up damaging the
innocent children who inevitably suffer the consequences of Mom and
Dad's bad decisions. In this case, the adorable victim is
five-year-old Prico (Luciano De Ambosis), a wide-eyed only child
who revels in the adoration of his parents (Emilio Cigoli and Isa
Pola) and his nanny. Though it's wartime, Prico is insulated from
the world outside until one day, on a walk in the park, his mother
slips behind a tree and chats with a strange man (Adriano Rimoldi).
Prico has no idea who this man is, but he immediately intuits
that the stranger is a disruptive force in his tidy little
universe. Sure enough, Mom flies the coop with her lover the next
day, leaving Dad, who is not a particularly secure or forceful
person, devastated not only by his cuckoldry but also by the
insidious gossip that sweeps instantly through his apartment block.
Meanwhile, Prico just wants to know where Mama went.
Eventually she returns, but a reconciliatory seaside family
vacation goes horribly wrong when Dad has to return to the city
early, leaving Mom and Prico alone. Her lover shows up, and it all
starts over again. This time, her betrayal of her son is even

Le sigle DVD signifiait à l'origine Digital Video
Disc, soit « disque vidéo numérique ».
Par la suite, des fabricants ont essayé de populariser la
dénomination Digital Versatile Disc, soit filmbay «
disque numérique polyvalent ». Finalement, le Forum
DVD a décidé en 1999 que le standard se compose de
ces trois simples lettres. We cannot guarantee the shipping speed,
since all our items are mailed with Canada Post. As seller we
cannot influence the speed of the mail. Customer service (also
known as Client Service) is the provision of service to customers
before, during and after a purchase. Its importance varies by
product, industry and customer. As an example, an expert customer
might require less pre-purchase service (i.e., advice) than a
novice. In many cases, customer service is important if the
purchase relates to a “service” as opposed to a
“product". Customer service may be provided by a person
(e.g., sales and service representative), or by automated means
called self-service. Examples of self service are Internet sites.
Customer service is normally an integral part of a company’s
customer value proposition. We do not offer CS in the traditional
sense, nor as outlined here. Thus you must read and agree to all
provisions set forth in this auction. Shipping costs are always
included in the final sales price.
We usually use drop ship services. Some drop shipping
retailers may keep "show" items on display in stores, so that
customers can inspect an item similar to those that they can
purchase. Other retailers may provide only a catalogue or website.
A customized packing slip may also be included by the wholesaler,
indicating the retailer's company name, logo, and/or contact
information. Drop shipping can occur when a small retailer who
typically sells in small quantities to the general public receives
a single large order for a product. Rather than route the shipment
through the retail store, the retailer may arrange for the goods to
be shipped directly to the customer. Many sellers on online auction
sites, such as eBay, also drop ship. Often, a seller will list an
item as new and ship the item directly from the wholesaler to the
highest bidder. The seller profits from the difference between the
winning bid and the wholesale price, minus any selling and merchant
fees from the auction site. We may sell an item that even though it
has been tested, may not work. Thus, all items are sold as is, no
warranties. Item sanscas, non procès, non chose -

otherwise. This has costed us a lot of money to date, so we have
the following provisdion: Under no circumstabces can or will we

dispute either. If an item has not arrived after a month or longer,

Information Francais pour France et Quebec: Détails de
la mise en vente et du paiement: Tous droits

mentionnées appartiennent à leurs
propriétaires respectifs. En droit public français,
le domaine public est l'ensemble des biens (immeubles ou meubles,
la domanialité publique des meubles étant
controversée) appartenant à l'État, à
des collectivités locales et à des
établissements publics et affectés à une
utilité publique. Cette utilité publique peut
résulter d'une affectation à l'usage direct du public
(comme les routes ou les jardins publics) ou à un service
public, pourvu, dans ce dernier cas, que le bien ait
été spécialement affecté à cette
fin (comme une université ou un tribunal). Le code
général de la propriété des personnes
publiques a repris cette notion mais en précisant que
l'aménagement doit être « indispensable »
à la mission de service public : il s'agit de freiner
l'évolution de la jurisprudence qui avait tendance à
trop étendre le domaine public. Cela amène même
certains à s'interroger sur l'utilité de conserver le
principe d'inaliénablilité du domaine public. Ces
interrogations résultent d'une variation d'approches de la
notion de domaine public: autrefois, zone à protéger
contre les dilapidations royales, aujourd'hui, il apparaît
comme une richesse à exploiter.Livraison et
