French Film Festival

Ah, one of my favourite times of the year - the French Film Festival. The streets of the city are lined with red white and blue banners. This year has a very good line-up and I've had to have a lot of restraint (thanks to time and budget) to not see everything.

The line-up for me will be:
Tonight: Lemming
Saturday: Je prefere qu'on reste amis/Just Friends
Sunday: Le Temps Qui Reste/Time To Leave, then L'Enfer/Hell
Next Sunday: Anthony Zimmer

Reviews to come.

excellent, can't wait for your reviews ! will refrain from comments/ possible spoilers until you've seen the films... must just say though, my 2 favorite Charlottes are in Lemming and it's well worth seeing it if only for the actresses.

Chez nous aussi c'est le festival du film francais et je vais voir 4 films aussi (PS. Hell ne se traduit pas "L'Enfer", c'est le nom de l'heroine...)

Hey, I've been reading your blog for a few months now, but this is the first time I've posted -- I enjoy catching up with what's going on Down Under, as I often wonder how my Australian friend from college is doing... We both studied in Paris together for a semester. I've been in love with French culture for more than half my life, and now I actually live in France, just outside of Paris... Long story! In any case, your life sounds so very glamorous, and I live a bit vicariously through your posts! You have really good taste, and a lot of what you have to say really intrigues me... And the restaurants there in Sydney sound so wonderful, sometimes what you had to eat makes my mouth water!

I think Miss Pink is actually referring to a new movie which just came out here in France called "Hell" about the drug scene among rich teenagers in the well-off Western side of Paris... But "L'Enfer" with Emmanuelle Béart and Karen Viard actually did come out here just a few months ago, and I don't think it's showing any longer in theaters -- I remember that I wanted to see it but never made it to the cinema... drat! I also wanted to see Caché, but didn't make it either...

Anyhoo, just thought I would mention it! Enjoy the Film Festival, sounds fab!
