Tais-toi ! (French pronunciation: [tɛ twa]Shut up!) is a 2003 French comedy-crime caper film, directed by Francis Veber.  The film is also known as Ruby & Quentin.

After hiding his loot and getting thrown in jail, Ruby, a brooding outlaw encounters Quentin, a dim-witted and garrulous giant who befriends him. After Quentin botches a solo escape attempt, they make a break together. Unable to shake the clumsy Quentin, Ruby is forced to take him along as he pursues his former partners in crime to avenge the death of the woman he loved and get to the money before they do.

AUGUST MOVIE NIGHT - L'ILLUSIONISTE

At our August movie event we enjoyed L'Illusioniste by director Sylvain Chomet.  

If you missed the movie or would like to see other movies in the EWC movie collection, you can now access a blu-ray/ dvd from Elfi at The Nest @ Eumundi.  Just drop in and show your 2015 membership badge. 

Our magic celebrity chef Max Porter from Native Sun Foods conjured up a delightful supper. In Max's own words: August we find ourselves with magic and disillusion. A French/Scottish mash up so we embark with this thought in mind. 

The supper dish Magic mushrooms with minger mash and toast of love apples - French forest mushrooms are braised with button and field mushies..juice strained, a bottle or two of red wine is added and reduced to a syrupy fumé. This elixir is returned to the mushroom pot..lightly thickened and handfuls of chopped flat leaf parsley are stirred through. The Scotts thought to the dish is minger mash - sweet potatoes are baked whole until tender…cooled slightly and skin removed, placed in a pot seasoned with apple cider vinegar, nutmeg and  olive oil and shredded green shallots. To crown our dish we have added a oven dried toast of love apples - tomatoes from ancient times have been referred to as love apples..conjuring up thoughts and emotions of desire of longing and passion.

They are simply..a slice of baguette moistened with olive oil and tomato paste and layered with a slice of vine tomato..seasoned and slowly baked until we have a crunchy crust..about 20 mins at 160c

The sweets - Strawberry fool with crunchy french meringue. Local jam berries are sliced and moistened with strawberry puree, orange marmalade  and whipped cream..gently folded and served with morsels of our meringue. Something with our café -Magic hats are mini banana bread muffins….the result of this process are prefect little hats that give tribute to our magic act, they are doused in a strawberry syrup and topped with coconut ….watch these hats disappear. The standard fair of lemon barley water is served as a refreshment

Thanks once again to Trent and Katie Harvison of Starry Night's Outdoor Cinemas (screen and equipment), Lisa and Bruce Williment from Parti Events (fabulous theming),  and Elfi Fairchild from the Nest@Eumundi (delicious coffee).  And the event would not be possible if it were not for our fabulous volunteers Paula, Dave, Viv and Sharon. Thank you for taking us around the world one movie at a time!
