Watched this French film with Stella tonight.
Have been looking forward to watching this after hearing so much about it from Ef (who is obssessed about it). It was pretty good movie. Very fast paced. Very typical French movie with loads of ironies, extremely dramatic and avec some French humour. You just don't know to hate the characters or to love them.
Now I want to read the book because I have a feeling the book would be much much better than the movie. Movies can never really potray good books because that is not possible. Movies are almost always a disappointment if you have read the book.
Looking back at my day, it has been a very crazy day. Starting with the fire drill at 7am! Which gave me a headache afterwards.
Had an hour of very stimulating lecture on International Financial Reporting Standards in accounting followed by 2 hours of very good presentations and debate on Sexual Harrassment in the workplace.
Went to tescos with Stella. Then she made us diner of Rougaile or something. Sorry can't remember it even though she spelt it to me several times in French and also English.
It was yummy.. Merci beaucoups chere Stella!! Tu es tres gentil !!!
Nous sommes alle au cinema.
After that we had ice cream. Then we took a walk for some fresh air and ended up in tesco again. We tried not to buy anything but I spent even more than my first trip. This is bad !
On a happier note, I got my very first iron!! All my clothes are badly crumpled from storage and desperately in need of ironing.
Excusez moi, I have to go do some ironing now…
