This is an absolutely delightful little romantic drama set in a remote French village. A village so set on their privacy, they could easily kill to maintain their notoriety. Some interesting situations develop in this award-winning short film of 13 minutes long. Although it is in French and includes sub-titles, at no point does it leave the viewer in the proverbial dark regarding what lengths this community will go to, to remain obscure.
Do you sometimes feel the same way about tourists?
We have more and more tourists in our country. I treat tourists like any human being.
Really love the photo, and thank you for sharing it.
You are so very welcome; The textures and tones of the building in the picture reminded me of the colors of the bread and croissants in the film clip, Jenna. Thank you for commenting.
We have many tourists downtown, the city continues to grow so quickly.
Is it a good thing, this phenomenon called progress, I wonder? Sometimes, it loses so much of the quaint character, don’t you think, Carol?
tourists often clog DC. It is funny Andre, we dread the summer when the tourists flock to the city! But only because it makes the traffic even worse!
I can readily identify with how tightly wound, one’s patience can get in gridlocked traffic. And, naturally, every tourist, the world over, is under the impression that everyone else in the city is on holiday too.
Therein lies the rub. Everyone else is a tourist, also!
I as a tourist, often dress up in a suit on a 90 degree day and holding a brief case rush from building to building!
Tourist mentality is as clear as this message to me: “Si, senor, dere da ygo, fortilor iesin arow. Demaint lories demaret rucks fu llof hensen geesea nducks.”
Si senor, der day go, fortie lories in a row. Dem aint lories, dem are trucks, full of hens and geese an ducks. Lol.
I just fell out of my chair laughing.
that is hilarious.
True, and so perfect
They’re trying to treat tourists like they were in Sodom and Gomorroh, cities historically known to be two of the worst cities ever in regards to hospitality.
I agree with Indexer , thanks for the article
It depends on what the tourists are like, Here in Florida I am living in a resort city and that means tourists all the time in larger and smaller numbers. they don’t really bother me but they sure stand out from the rest running about the main avenue with bare feet having come up from the beach rushing into the fast food places to buy up some food and return to the sand and some of them even come up to the main avenue in the skimpiest bathing suite ever and that just makes me uncomfortable to see them.
Hello Sandra, I’m in full agreement with you, and no country can disregard tourism it is a vital component of capital growth. I can also see those villagers wanting peace in their lives and maybe a few Euro’s less and a few bowls of soup and bread more, than huge slabs of Rump steak and truffles, etc. and the ensuing noise.
I answered Yes, although I don’t agree with killing under any circumstances! I am always surprised when there is a TV item about “an unspoilt place that you really must visit” because that seems to guarantee that it won’t stay unspoilt for much longer.
Never was a truer word spoken. Thank you, John, for your insightful comments as always.
The title is interesting but I am not comfortable in watching something that has subtitles.
Alex, Just like you, I don’t speak a word of French and deplore sub-titles, per se. But that’s the thing about this video, you DON’T need words, the images are self-explanatory. Respectfully, Alex, just watch it again Alex, you’ll get it. I don’t know what your home language is, if it’s English, that’s great for you but mine is 100%, not English, but to master the English vernacular if I wanted to know what was going on in the world.
