I can't actually remember if it is Three Colours: Blue or The Double Life of Veronique. I remember it is a Krzysztof Kieslowski film where either Irene Jacob or Juliette Binoche pours coffee over her ice cream in a cafe. I remember it struck me as a stunning moment in the film and a very good idea for dessert, yet somehow, whenever it strikes me to do the same, I have a moment of reflection, a remembered sadness that probably stems from the mood of the film at that moment. It struck me that I could probably never eat that particular combination of bitter and sweet without wracking my brains as to which of the two films I had seen it in and then experience that half remembered moment of sadness. Try it. It's got to be very strong coffee, a ristretto or an espresso and the ice-cream should be just out of the freezer or you'll have a bowl of coffee and vanilla soup. Better still, do it in a cafe and watch the world go by. It seems almost the perfect accompaniment to spending some time by your self.
