Girl, I can't tell you how much I LOVE Claudine also. What a love story. And the soundtrack? Everytime I hear it I just get a glow. There's a song on there that's one of my alltime favorite SONGS -- "The Makings of You" which was written by Curtis Mayfield. He actually sang it on another recording, but nobody sings that like Gladys Knight.

As for Birth -- you've got to go into it with an open mind. It's kind of out there.
