French Movies 

If you want to learn more about the dynamics of human interaction, philosophy and love, I recommend you watch French movies. Most likely you won’t see any Superheroes, amazing plot twists, invading aliens, doomsday scenarios, explosions or fast cars, nor a perfect ending. I find that French movies endeavour to capture life in all its blandness glory and failings. The conclusion matters less, the human experience and life journey comes to the fore. The themes can sometimes be raw, close to home and a little uncomfortable… love, joy, sex, black humour, death, betrayal, commitment, obsession and divorce notwithstanding. French motion picture artists help me find meaning in this crazy mixed up world.
