Indie tips for Bastille Day

user
The Champs-Elysees shakes with the pounding of hundreds of hooves as French soldiers march their horses past the Arc de Triomph. The strumming of guitars and pounding of drums flows through every street of Paris and the sky above the Eiffel Tower sparkles with red fireworks. Bastille Day commemorates the storming of Bastille prison and the paradigm shift in French society. Known as La Fête Nationale in France, the fourteenth of July is a symbol of the great revolution that forever changed g...

HEARTBREAKER: Chemistry In The House (Tribeca 2010)

user
"It took much longer to get him (Romain Duris) than any woman I've ever known," says HeartBreaker director Pascal Chaumeil, only half-conscious of his double entendre in English, as he speaks of his lead actor's initial reluctance to attempt this romantic comedy with Vanessa Paradis in a post-screening Q & A session. "It was essential to find the right couple. Chemistry is everything." Lucky for Chaumeil, the magic potion is there between Juliette, a former w...

Le Ballon Rouge

user
Le Ballon Rouge, Albert Lamorisse, 1956 by Josie Ainscough Le Ballon Rouge is a short, beautifully made film shot in colour, which tells the story of a little boy who finds a bright red balloon tied to a lamppost. He unties it, and finds out that it has a mind of its own. The balloon follows him around, bobbling along behind him, on the bus to school, even getting him into trouble with his head teacher. A group of bullies, jealous of the boy and his friendly balloon, chase them thr...

PARIS CINECITY

user
by Robert BerryFor all Paris residents who are also lovers of cinema – a Venn diagram with a broad intersection if ever there was one - watching Woody Allen’s recent Midnight in Paris must have provoked a series of uncanny recognitions: the steps at the top of Rue de la Montagne Ste-Genevieve without the overspill crowds of drinkers from the Bombardier pub, entrance to Polidor on Rue Monsieur le Prince, but with the tables arranged slightly differently. Allen’s film presents an impossib...

Our Paris Series Part VII: Return to the Latin Quarter

user
    By Sophie Nellis   Is it a yo yo? Is it a thermometer? No, it’s the…Pantheon   If you visit the Pantheon, you will undoubtedly marvel at its enormity but you may also ask yourself, “What is it?” This is a good question, and one that has long puzzled both tourists and the French. Built under Louis XV in the 17th century, it was intended to be a church dedicated to one of Paris’ patron saints, S...

Our Paris Series Part IV: Canal Saint Martin

user
  By Sophie Nellis   The best place to go if you’re looking for atmosphere… In addition to the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l’Est, one of the key landmarks in the 10th arrondissement is the Canal St-Martin. Although the northern part of the canal has a slightly industrial feel to it, the southern part is very picturesque and it’s a great place to go if you fancy a leisurely stroll.

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 5

user
I awoke to the smell of fresh croissants baking in the oven. Xin and Uli were so kind to offer such a yummy breakfast! Soon, we were off for the day, taking the Metro to Montmartre, where artists like Pierre-Auguste Renoir used to live and create. Artists of today still flood the area. Unfortunately, the Metro goes straight through the hill of Montmartre, so the two closest stations are on either side, necessitating a steep walk. I have found that a steady pace works best for me, and with ti...

Paris Hilton Mania Hits Toronto

 Wednesday, September 10-------The question lingered.....would Paris Hilton show up or not show up for the red carpet premiere of the film PARIS, NOT FRANCE. Hilton has been vocally critical of the documentary and even tried to shut down public showings of the film. But even Paris Hilton could not resist the celebrity draw of Paris Hilton, so the blond babe (who is famous for being famous, and not for any particular talent) basked in the glow of the attention that the film stirred among the To...
