Spotlight/Shoutout: French People

So I think I just bombed a french exam, but whatevs...since my mind is on French today, here are some French actors that have gained some fame. ;)

Gerard Depardieu

The King of French Cinema


Daniel Auteuil
Possibly the greatest man to come from French Algeria, Screw you Camus! Daniel stars in great films like "Le Placard," awesome flick!



Julie Delpy
Talented young individual, but I will forgive her for "Two Days in Paris." B O Ring


And!!!!

This random French comedian who messes around with with stereotypes, and is moderately funny. C'est tres amusant (pas vraiment).



QATFYG:
Do you have a favorite French or Belgian actor?

  1. You completely skipped Gregoire Colin, which probably means you're not too familiar with Claire Denis' work. Although I am not a super huge fan of him, he is a good actor and has been in some pretty important films. Like I've already mentioned he is associated with Claire Denis. He has been in at least half of her films, which shows his versatility, since her films are constantly changing, but nevertheless important and influential. This may sound a bit more about the director Denis, but the two go hand in hand. He has the ability to do some many different roles. I have seen him twice in two different films and could not tell it was him till after the fact. He's not my favorite. I also don't have a favorite, but he is a noteworthy french actor.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
