Voila! Ici the French trailer for Me Before You starring Emilia Clarke & Sam Claflin


I like to take it easy on Sunday, so much so I tend to call it #SlackerSunday, letting some sort of video do the talking for me. Today's SlackerSunday post is about as slackery as you can get. It's a repeat.

I really do love seeing trailers for American and English films in French. While the notion of one actor dubbing the voice of another is a trifle bizarre, it’s quite the art in France. We talked a bit about the art of dubbing films in French in my post The Hunger Games: The Lowdown on Dubbing.


I read and loved this book in English but I gather it has a whole host of international fans. Me Before You starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, directed by Thea Sharrock and based on the book by Jojo Moyes is set for release on June 3rd. So is Avant Toi. 

And especially for those of you stopping by from Paulita Kincer’s Dreaming of France meme, ici la bande annonce en français for Avant Toi. Has anyone read the French translation of Moyes’ book?

  1. Superbe! Is it just me or do they speak super-fast in that trailer?

  2. This movie looks so good, in English or French, but I know it's going to break my heart. Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

    1. It's good, a definite tear jerker IF you can ignore Emilia Clarke's mugging (I say that with love, I happen to be a fan) and the hard facts of the life of a paraplegic.

  3. I wish my French was good enough to read real books in French! I can read, write and speak it, but I get so frustrated with myself for reading so slowly and it takes so much effort, I give up when I should carry on!

    1. I took French for a few years in secondary school when we lived in Canada. Still my French is limited to the primitive 'fantastique' and 'Mon dieu!' level. Kudos to you! Me Before You is a pretty simple read in English, perhaps Avant Toi is as well?
