The Casino Scene in France

We often think of cities outside the French capital as the places to find casinos. The classic French film Bob Le Flambeur focuses on a glamorous casino in Deauville, north of Paris, while Jacques Demu’s 1963 film La Baie des Angels (Bay of Angels) takes place in Nice. So notable are the French Riviera casinos […]

“Sundance” on the Seine

Think of it as Sundance for Europe. Ecu, the European Independent Film Festival, brings cinema from all over the world to Paris from April 8 – 10. Think of these films as the antidote to Batman vs. Superman nonsense. And, just like its Park City spiritual forebear, this festival counts parties as an integral part […]

French Films That Hit the Jackpot

Living in France is so incredible that it makes you feel like you’ve just won the lottery. After all, is there anything more luxurious than taking a stroll to buy freshly-baked brioche from your local boulangerie? This association isn’t too far-fetched in reality. French history has been changed dramatically due to the lottery – it […]

Multi-Media Arc de Triomphe

An American in Paris…on Stage

It was a tall order to take one of the most beloved musical films of all time and turn it into a stage production but Christopher Wheeldon, the director and choreographer, has remarkably pulled it off with astounding success. From beginning to end, “An American in Paris” was perfection. The cast is marvelously talented and […]

An English-Language Theatre Festival

Despite its hard-to-remember name – Dionysia (Die-oh-nice-ee-a) – the English-language theatre competition and festival has done nothing but grow. I asked Chris Newens to fill us in on The Montmartre Dionysia III. He writes The third year of this biannual event takes place December 1-6, bringing 4 plays – chosen from 30 entrants – to […]

7th Annual Fashion Film Fest

A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival is the first film festival dedicated to fashion, style, and beauty. For the 7th edition of the worldwide festival, Diane Pernet has curated a much more versatile program of the fashion film genre, stating, “The worlds of fashion and film both work around the notion of dream and […]

The A**Hole and His Sh***y Beard

With apologies for all the cuss words…I love this attack on the Hipster.
