Eight of us went to see this film last night at the Cine Lumiere in South Kensington and we all came out thinking what an amazing film. It was I think for all of us beautiful and stunning. The French certainly know how to tell a story. In the time of films consisting of loud bangs and flashes and where in the Cineworld we go to the sound permeates through from the screen next door this film is just a good story. The visual equivalent of a good book. It is a beautiful tale of life, love and loss. The actors and actresses don’t appear to have had fortunes spent on plastic and teeth but instead look like you and I. And of course there is the eccentricity of Parisian neighbours and what a city to have as a backdrop. Maybe more people want to come to London but Paris is a far more beautiful city and long may it remain so.
This evening we went to the Cine Lumiere situated in the Institut Francais in the heart of South Kensington. It is an action packed film but a little light on the plot with even a fairly large hole in it but still a good romp of a police buddy movie. It is a story about Simon and Franck a close pair but as we join the film in the present with flashbacks Simon is working as a security guard and has left the force. We are fed snippets of information between various chase and fight scenes. All in all well worth seeing. Especially at the Cine Lumiere.
I think we have been to this great little restaurant in Glendower Place three times after seeing films at the Cine Lumiere just round the corner. The food is nice and very tasty, the staff very pleasant and the prices very reasonable. We will definitely be going again. http://www.papparoma.com.
