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!
You old romantic!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you don't like films that contain violence. I am the same. Peace and Love Man!ReplyDelete
Right on bro. We were worried when thought Paddington was going to die and when the Gamekeeper caught Peter Rabbit. Peace and love.Delete
Killing people just ain't cool dude! Give me Mary Poppins every time. I wonder what she was poppin' man?Delete
A spoon full of sugar perhaps Mr Pudding.Delete
I am going to look for this film, a bit of escapism is always nice.ReplyDelete
Absolutely JayCee. Anything daft or moving. That's the perfect film for me!ReplyDelete
Escapism is wonderful Terra. If it only takes you away for an hour or two.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
They sound good choices Sol. Totally agree there is no need for violence in fictional programmes. Slow and sedate sounds perfect .ReplyDelete
Sangria and a film set in a French vineyard. Sounds fine to me. Im another one who cant stand violence eitherReplyDelete
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.🍾ReplyDelete
It's an oldie, but have you ever seen "A Walk In the Clouds?" *sigh* So romaaaaaaaaantic...ReplyDelete
Tim watched it with me and when it was done, he said, "Yeah, it was okay..."
I normally cough when my eyes well up. Tim is a cool character Debby.ReplyDelete
