We found the ultimate French film addict – My French Life™ x Alliance Française French Film Festival Melbourne
Winners announced! Scroll to the base of this article for more.
For some people, there’s nothing worse than a French film. It’s in another language, it’s generally convoluted, too artsy, or incredibly depressing.
If you are seething in disagreement right now, then you’re just the person we’re looking for…
You’re the sort of French film lover who hasn’t just seen every Jean-Pierre Jeunet film, you devoured them. 10 times. Each.
You’re DYING to see Cédric Klapisch’s new film, and to you, François Truffaut is more than just a nice French name.
You call yourself a French film aficionado, amoureux du cinéma français, obsessed with the cinematic triumphs (and perhaps failures) de l’hexagone.
Don’t we have a treat for you…
