Bon Ton

This video manages to be wickedly clever, visually interesting and utterly hilarious (some music, and narrated in French with English subtitles):

  1. Really good, and the cliches were great. Also watched the Bloopers and laughed out loud at a few scenes. Thanks for the humor on a dreary Friday morning... ;D

    1. Glad you enjoyed it, Terlee. I giggled so hard I nearly gave myself hiccups. I was also kind of in awe of how many cliches there were -- in one sense it's like a tutorial. :)

  2. I haven't watched many French films, but this certainly captures how Americans romanticize life in France.

    1. The only thing missing was the beret-wearing bucolic peasant sipping rosé and gnoshing on snails al fresco at the village cafe. With his truffle-hunting pig tied to his chair, of course.
