What Land Are You From?

With today's simultaneous release of DVD sets of films of both Sophia Loren and Catherine Deneuve, Dave Kehr had this interesting description of these two sovereign nations in his review in today's Times:

Lorenland is a proletarian world of workers and peasants, defined by spontaneity and sensuality, a world of broad comedy and even broader melodrama. The petit principality of Deneuve is the Monaco of movies: a primarily urban environment of designer boutiques and chic restaurants, in which emotions are muffled and sex discreet (and frequently unhappy).

Can you guess which one is Junk Thief's patron saint? On the topic of ice queens, the ever eloquent Dunlap offers this perspective.

I think I'm living in an Deneuve enclave (gated) in a Loren State.

Jason - I live in a Deneuve pied-à-terre in the Republic of Rosie Perez.
