    The daily newspaper Le Monde wrote: "To affirm ... that it was crowned (in Cannes) for its cinemagraphic qualities is either proof of incompetence, a pure lie or a cynical joke."

    Le Monde said the film more closely resembles propaganda, and it carried a separate article to separate "truths" from "errors" in the film.

    Moore, in an interview with Liberation, said the movie "presents my own version of the facts."

    Even less kind was France's superstar philosopher, Bernard-Henri Levy, who dismissed "Fahrenheit 9/11" as dishonest.

    "When Michael Moore describes Iraq, before the American intervention, as a sort of oasis of peace and happiness, where people flew kites .... there wasn't only that," Levy said on RTL radio.

    Levy noted that he opposed the war and considers Bush a "catastrophe for America." But, he added: "Saddam Hussein was also a horrible dictator. And that is not in the film of Michael Moore."

    An American walks up to a frenchman and asks, "do you know how to speak german?"

    The frog responds, "no"

    The American then tells the frenchman "You&#39;re welcome&#33;"

    First of all F The French.

    Second of all, bman, unless you&#39;re European, I&#39;d stop characterizing Europe&#39;s Group thoughts on America.


    But i&#39;m sure Michael Moore told you that too. :lol:

    I dont think my remarks were racial. I like people of all races. My remarks were an international slur. As far as racial background, I am white. My best friend is black. There is a big difference between racism and not liking a country.

    How many times has the US bailed out France?? I believe they were once completely conquered by Hitler. When it comes time for them to help us, they run and hide.

    France is a nation of cowards that first tries to appease their enemies....

    If that doesn&#39;t work, they depend on others...ie.... US and Britain to defeat their enemies for them....

    Ha...I was going to post the same thing. The symbol mostly used by America to display their "freedom" was given to them by the people they like to slag the most. <_<
