Perhaps just my imagination, nevertheless I have noticed over the last some years, that I haven´t had the opportunity to watch many comedies. The good ones when you roll with laughter all through and just admire the originality of the gags. And then recently I thought of a few French films.
Our Recommendations: French Movies for the Weekend
Weekend, you and french movies
Un peu, beaucoup, aveuglément (The Blind Date)
French are masters at situational humor. An example of which is The Blind Date.
A silence loving eccentric man living on the top floor of a Paris apartment gets disturbed the arrival of a new neighbour who is a pianist.
Since the two apartments are divided by a very thin wall makes them hear everything resulting in a great romantic comedy that follows.
Le Jeu (Nothing to hide)
Digital times bring troubles of a different kind. Really, how many of you would allow another person to see or hear all your incoming messages, emails or phone calls?
This in a nutshell is a plot of this film.
A group of long time friends meet over the dinner during the lunar eclipse.
Certain tension is already felt when they come up with the idea of keeping all their phones in the middle of the table and decide to share their personal messages and emails when chaos begins.
