Watching A Film Set In France On A Boring Irish Bank Holiday Weekend.

We stayed at home yesterday after our carbooting jaunt on Saturday.  We made some Sangria and I decided to flick through Netflix films and documentaries.  Sometimes I look in the British films and we won't watch anything with violence and it's  a struggle sometimes to find anything to watch.

Then somehow I found Under The Eiffel Tower:


It's  a wonderful film set in the French countryside full of vineyards and a female lead that would make anyone instantly fall in love with.  Yes the story is your typical strangers meeting on a train, sharing a bottle of wine made on a French vineyard where coincidentally the heroine works and jointly owns.

The storylines got some interesting subplots and a bit predictable ending.  But if you want sheer escapism and to gaze at an amazing French actress, beautiful food, wines, vineyards and rural gobsmacking countryside.  Give it a whirl!

Judith Godreche is amazing!

    1. Right on bro. We were worried when thought Paddington was going to die and when the Gamekeeper caught Peter Rabbit. Peace and love.

  4. Escapism is wonderful Terra. If it only takes you away for an hour or two.

  5. I have just bought Butterflies on DVD. My mind cant take violence and all the murder police programmes at present. Larkrise to Candleford for me. These are my speeds at present. Slow and sedate.

  6. They sound good choices Sol. Totally agree there is no need for violence in fictional programmes. Slow and sedate sounds perfect .

  8. Hi Linda. Netflix films and reading blogs are good ways to relax on a boring weekend when there's not a lot going on. The Sangria helps make you relax even more. Cheers.🍾
