I’m back again! Even though I haven’t written it doesn’t mean that my French obsession has seized. I just started to read, Paris My Sweet, by Amy Thomas. She also has a blog called, God, I Love Paris. What French inspired book are you reading? Or have enjoyed reading?
As I was Surfing the Net at work I came across this article about not sounding dumb or pretentious while ordering at a French Restaurant. If you’re at work with nothing to do or a bunch of work but really bored, click here for the article.
THE WOMEN ON THE 6TH FLOOR…Paris, 1960. Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini, Potiche) lives a bourgeois existence absorbed in his work, cohabitating peacefully with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne (Sandrine Kiberlain, Mademoiselle Chambon) while their children are away at boarding school. The couple’s world is turned upside-down when they hire a Spanish maid María (Natalia Verbeke). Through María, Jean-Louis is introduced to an alternative reality just a few floors up on the building’s sixth floor, the servants’ quarters. He befriends a group of sassy Spanish maids (Pedro Almodóvar regular Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Berta Ojea, Nuria Solé, Concha Galán), refugees of the Franco regime, who teach him there’s more to life than stocks and bonds, and whose influence on the house will ultimately transform everyone’s life. In French and Spanish, with English subtitles.
