I try to check in most Mondays by sharing something related to French films based on books. Not always an easy task but I'm a giver. Today I found a trailer for Bird People, a French language film screening at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie starring Josh Charles (The Good Wife) and Anais Demoustier made a huge impact at Cannes last May.
The trailer, below, is really intriguing; it's not everyday you see a bird riding an escalator.
Bird People, however, is NOT based on a book. It's an original film written by Guillaume Breaud and Pascale Ferran, who also directed.
In an airport hotel on the outskirts of Paris, a Silicon Valley engineer abruptly chucks his job, breaks things off with his wife, and holes up in his room. Soon, fate draws him and a young French maid together.It doesn't sound like the characters or the audience gets to see much of Paris. Quel domage! Still, the trailer looks intriguing.
So where's my book to movie connection?
That's my contribution to this week's Dreaming of France, hosted by Paulita at An Accidental Blog. Scroll down to see the trailers and visit Paulita's An Accidental Blog for more.
