Annie and Elyse love a great assortment of cookies, but they also love a great assortment of French movies, which is what we bring you on today's episode! One of our listeners asked a thought-provoking question: what French movies portrait France well? And while we were thinking about that, several people pipped in with the name of their favorite French movies. The thing is, a French person's idea of a great French movie is not the same as what English speakers consider good French movies. The most popular movies in France are mostly silly. French people love nothing more than a good slap-stick comedy! My American friends love movies like The Hundred-Foot Journey. A feel-good movie that takes place in a mythical version of France. I went to Saint Antonin Noble Val to see where the movie was shot. I recognized nothing that looks like the movie at all. Having said that, Saint Antonin is still a nice place to visit.
