Last time I wrote about the US Election, it was about the 2016 US Presidential Election and it was focused more on the presidential election process. And it looks like I stopped writing / updating it on Oct 23rd. Wonder why I didn’t continue thru the end . . . .
Anyway, this time around I am writing, or at least I am starting to write, on the over all Election.

That is what I think I heard on the radio this morning. Which cannot be a good thing, I thought to myself. And then I reminded myself that I am one of the 6. I have a friend who’s political views are polar opposite of mine and I can honestly say that I consider him one of my very close friend.
But that brought up some other interesting thoughts.
After both sign an agreement with a company that offers to end their lives when they least expect it, a dejected millionaire and a disheartened young woman fall in love and have to find a way to get out of their binding contracts.
With a tag line like above, how was I supposed to start watching it. As I did, I realized that it was a foreign film and not the usual French or Italian or German or East European but Dutch. I don’t recall another Dutch movie that I have watched before.
