Ok, so I was watching Godfather of Harlem and noticed something particularly sweet and brilliant for which I wanted to say thank you. There's a scene between Forest Whitaker and Isaach de Bankolé; Bankolé and Whitaker's characters both speak French and English, and they are Not Friends. It reminded me of something but what was it?

It drove me crazy until I remembered that in one of my all-time favorite movies, Ghost Dog, these same two actors played two best friends, but Whitaker's character didn't speak French and Bankolé's didn't speak English. I can't imagine that the scene from Godfather of Harlem wasn't an intentional homage and to whomever was responsible for that: thank you, I loved it and it was beautiful! [2/2]
