francophonie film fest


a while ago was my last chance to see at least a film included in the francophonie film fest hosted by alliance. hence even if i have to go by myself, it didn’t bother me at all. anyway, it’s nothing new to me, seeing a movie alone. i normally date myself in movies and fine restos:p


before i hit the auditorium, i went to le coude rouge resto inside afm to have a badly missed french cuisine. whilst feasting on my chosen entrée, flan au roquefort, i realized how I miss afm’s campus, my cheeky classmates and cool profs in french course. i even thought of reenrolling next term. waaah! i’m back to my age-old question, why we only have 24 hours a day?!


film starts at 830, so I skipped dessert to rush inside.

it’s a comedy film by jean-françois pouliot – la grande séduction.






i was at first intrigued by its numerous accolades under its belt e.g. cannes, sundance and toronto film fest. but i easily got hooked to its wry tackling of truth and hoax. it successfully developed its character and humour to its audience. i find the ragtag community’s persuasion to dr.lewisto stay to their fishing town pretty amusing :p




after the film, i went home yes, alone. but happier and again connected to myself :p

i just dont know if it’s the film…or the dinner…or the date i had with myself :-)
