Ceci n'est pas une guerre (c'est l'amour)

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 15, 2003

Seeing U.S. President George Bush and French President Jacques Chirac get all buddy-buddy at the recent G8 Summit inspired me to make a silent film about the sometimes-tender / sometimes-turbulent relationship of these two powerful men. Witness the giddy highs and depressing lows of a very public love. The film is called Ceci n'est pas une guerre (c'est l'amour), or This is not a war (it's love), and I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks to Andre, Matt, Meg, Leonard, Mouser, and Caterina for their help with this. :)
