In my current French class, our instructor has been showing us little bits of the film Paris, Je T’aime, which is actually made up of 18 short films all directed and acted by different (and very talented) people. We watch one, then discuss some of the idiomatic language and what’s grammatically correct and not. We watched these two in class, and I loved both so much I just had to tell you about them. I’ve spent some time on You Tube watching others, and while there are good ones (this one is sweet and this one is so funny), the one below in particular is my favorite. I’ve watched it so many times, and am just so humored and charmed by it. If you’ve ever traveled abroad — and especially to Paris — you will understand exactly the feeling she is referring to at the end.
Ooh, two quick notes — some of these just because of language (spoken and written in subtitles) may not be safe for work, so listen with headphones. Also, if you want to watch the whole thing, check Netflix streaming…it might be available on there. Enjoy!
