Here are two of my favourite films, which I’ve seen dozens of times!

The Big Blue is poetic and almost hypnotic. The diving, the ocean, the anxieties, the taste of risk… it’s intense and heavy but also a wonderful ode to freedom. Without forgetting the landscapes and the music. If you like this director, Luc Besson, don’t miss the movies The Professional andThe Fifth Element.

In a completely different genre, my second favoyrite movie is Hey Good Looking! A comedy that makes me smile, my anti-depression film or just to have a good time. The scenario is simple but effective, we laugh, we cry, we sing. These 4 Parisian women are endearing and funny. A beautiful image of the modern woman who does what she can despite the obstacles of everyday life.


The Big Blue

The Big Blue (1988)

Comme T'y Es Belle

Hey Good Looking! (2006)

Four fun-seeking Jewish women in Paris share their lives between love affairs, a beauty institute under fiscal control, children to raise, an undocumented Moroccan nanny to marry, repeated diets, family and religious holidays to honour, but before being beautiful, their biggest challenge is to be themselves.





Bon film!
