April, A little holiday rolling during the spring in Paris and how are we? Traveling on the sofa and dying to see the City of Light again, toasting to the sunny days with a beautiful glass of champagne, feeling the smell of croissants coming out of the oven, sitting in a good cafe to watch life happen without haste. But, until this happens in practice, we will see Paris on the small screen, from home.
For starters, I suggest the French series Dix pour Cent which is already in its fourth season and shows behind the scenes of an agency in charge of taking care of the career of great talents, some of Paris’ most beloved postcards, iconic hotels and the delicious movement in the streets. It’s a great way to get inside the screen.
Those who have not yet seen the film Midnight in Paris directed by Woody Allen have the chance to immerse themselves during quarantine in the romantic and nostalgic Paris where the writer Gil (Owen Wilson) takes night trips. Surprisingly at the bells ringing at midnight he is transported to 1920, the golden age of France, where he experiences great moments.
Also watch Amélie which received several Oscar nominations and had a surreal box office during its release. Arriving in Paris from a country town, Amélie moves to Montmartre, where she works as a waitress. She starred in many scenes in the beautiful Parisian landscape as she discovered that helping others can change her world. It’s worth the popcorn session!
And this way we can reminisce this city full of personality, which is sewn by art, history, gastronomy and fashion. Soon Paris will receive us resplendent and with open arms.
For now it’s time to protect yourself and stay home.
XoXo and see you next Tuesday.
