I’m not sure what it is but there’s something about summer that makes me think about French films. It might be because growing up in the Berkshires the local movie theater always carried the newest French movie. Over the years I’ve written about other movies that I loved (check out the list below for other recommendations!) but tonight I want to share a new trailer for My King (or Mon Roi en français) that premiers tomorrow in NYC. I haven’t seen the movie (yet!) but this trailer got me so good. According to a Brooklyn Magazine article the movie is tragic (of course it’s French) and romantic (again, duh) which is great because those are two of my favorite things.
Right!?!? I want to see it so badly and I don’t even really know what it’s about other than a tragic love story. The movie comes out tomorrow at Lincoln Center in the city.. Can’t wait for it to come closer to mr in Brooklyn.
Other French movies I’ve loved over the years: Blue is the Warmest Color, Tell No One, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Elles, and one other about a French vineyard and an escaped convict that I can’t for the life of me remember but if you know what I’m talking about please put it in the comments -___-
