July 14 … time to share some of my favorite french movies!

La Belle et La Bête – Jean Cocteau – 1946
The beauty of this classic lies in its calmness and wonderful melancholy.

Delicatessen – Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Marc Caro – 1991
A strange, poetic and slightly bloody boy-meets-girl story.

Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain – Jean-Pierre Jeunet – 2001
Amélie is one of my all time favorite love stories. Plus you really get eargasms from Yann Tiersen’s soundtrack.

2 Days in Paris – Julie Delpy – 2007
This one tells you a lot about “real” Paris & “real” relationships.

The Artist – Michel Hazanavicius – 2011
One of those rare movies when you get out and want to go straight back in and watch it again.
