Night at Pigalle






My December

December has always been my favorite month of the year not only because it’s holiday season but for many other things. That’s why for this very last month of 2012, I will put up my favorite things in pictures and yes I am kinda inspired by Julie Andrews’ “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music which become one of most popular non-christmas related song but often included in christmas albums. So, even though I’m two-three days late, I welcome my December!

Oh so Populaire

I always say to myself thay I must explore and take advantages from this city of lights as long as I can. Living in Paris is almost like living a dream. Nope, it wasn’t the Eiffel tower that made my heart beats a lil bit faster. It’s those lil things in daily life of being parisian (or banlieusard in this matter) and one of those lil things is to be able to take a closer look on big actors and actresses without paying a dime.

Last night, I was in the mood for random photo-hunting in Paris. I had no plan or such until I saw this 50ish person in line in front of a movie theater. After taking few shots of this beeline, I saw a red carpet and tv crews and security guy everywhere. So, I decided to wait in the cold november night and quite excited to be there when I saw Bérénice Bejo (The Artist, 2011) arrived with Shaun Benson thanks to Google), a canadian actor. Then, Romain Duris (L’Auberge Espagnol/Spanish apartment, 2001) and Déborah François came along.

It was apparently the première of Populaire, a french film by Régis Roinsard about a secretary, her boss and some typing competitions in the late 50’s and rumour has it, the movie will become another succes story for François who won her César on 2009.
