Busy Avenue of Life

After an exhausting week in New York, there is nothing I love more than staying in on a Friday night and watching a movie, especially one like Avenue Montaigne (Fauteuils d'Orchestre). The New York Times calls it "a film about love and art, about passing time and time passing, Avenue Montaigne is a humble pleasure" and I couldn't agree more. I laughed. I cried. It was a wonderfully sweet and funny movie. It's like Amelie but without the hocus pocus. Rent it today and you won't be disappointed. C'est Manifique!

thanks! love amelie more than words, i don't even need the subtitles anymore, i've watched it so many times. adore french flicks, always looking for new indulgences. just watched "the queen" this morning, with Hellen Mirren...i never got around to watching it. it was excellent, (and beautifully made), god, i miss london.

Lissa, I love Amelie too. It's such a great feel good movie! Belle du Jour is an interesting French movie that is worth watching but it's definitely a different kind of film.

The Queen was great too. Helen Mirren is such an amazing actress. I am in awe of her.

Amelie is so gorgeous. I just want to curl up and live in that movie.
