La Joueuse ( Queen to Play)

A chat today in my  group notes about kevin klein brought me back 3 years. It will be 3 years ago I watched this french film  La joueuse. English translation "Queen To Play". 

Up until that time my only experience with chess was being around people obsessed with the game which i found unhealthy and boring. I formed an opinion that chess players are socially inept and emotionally empty... lolol ( yes ignorant and judgemental on my part. Long story)  I played  very little and did not know the game. My belief system about chess people prevented me from really getting into the game and learning it. I watched this movie on netflix Thanksgiving weekend 3 years ago and that weekend on the saturday night i went onto face book and typed in chess. and was directed here and the rest is history. Upon searching youtube, i am noticing that they have the full version in there. I am posting it here for your viewing pleasure.
