Mon Meilleur Ami

I've been slacking slightly in my post frequency and I apologize for that. It seems as though my current job wants to get the most out of me before I depart. They thought it was a good idea to assign me some new projects and overload me with things to do. But more on that in a subsequent post.

Last night I went to go see Mon Meilleur Ami with a friend and I really enjoyed it. The film was light, fun and even poignant at times. Check out the preview for yourself but be warned you may feel compelled to go out and see the movie after viewing the trailer.

I must say that prior to watching Mon Meilleur Ami I was pretty disappointed with many of the French films that I have seen recently. For a majority of the French films that I've seen recently it's as if I started out watching one movie and about 75 minutes into the film there was a drastic plot twist. It's as if I got up to go to the restroom and mistakenly returned the the wrong theater. Has anyone seen this hot mess or this one? 'Nuff said.

I still want to see Paris Je T'aime but I think I missed the boat on that one as it's not playing at any theaters near me.

That's disappointing to hear about Je T'aime Paris. I haven't seen Ratatouille because none of my friends wanted to see it with me.
I'm game to go next week. Email me and let's make plans.
