Charade, “the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made”

Enjoy “Charade”, starring Audrey, Cary, and … Paris, among other great actors and beautiful places of the Sixties, with music by Henry Mancini … perfect backscreen Youtube for a boring summer day at the office …

By the way, thanks to a copyright mistake by Universal Pictures, the film was public domain from scratch, in 1963.

The French are … “fonctionnaires”, et alors ?

“C’est une vieille habitude que j’ai …”

Happy New Year 2014, from Paris, with Love

Renaud Favier – December 31st, 2013 – Facebook Café du matin à Paris

Let's Go

Enjoy yourself, car parking is free in Paris now, and it’s summer holiday time in France

Café du matin à Paris 5 août 2013 3 c Renaud Favier

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, and your favourite shops in town may close while you work too much for too little, walk too fast for those you love, talk too much about unsignificant things, try to teach to deaf deads, or just look elsewhere …

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, the good, nice, sunny days go faster than the clouds with the wind …

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think, your hair gets grey faster than it ever did, these days …

Enjoy the spices of life, tourists in Paris and free parking in August in town, as long as they are around …

Enjoy life, love, whatever as long as there is beauty in and under your eyes

When it’s Tea Time in Europe, it may be Brunch Time East Coast, and Breakfast Time on Pacific Coast. But it’s Always “Café du Matin à Paris” Time

Of course, not everybody everywhere wants to drinks tea, when it’s “tea time” in Paris, France … And of course, the people who love  “Café du matin à Paris” are not just “anybody”. But the good news is, it’s free to like it anywhere, everywhere, anytime.

Frenchonomics      Compétitivité 2012 couverture

Some more readings about France, present, and other more important issues.

               
               
         
           
          

Some more “West Coast” (and free) readings about future.

Bad in France Couverture         

And some rather “East Coast”, “business” readings (free, of course).

My goodness ! France at war against talent, now ?

la-une-choc-des-inrocksIs France killing art and passion ? Fighting against its own artists and talented people ? Read more about it here : http://renaudfavier.com/2013/01/16/si-armstrong-balance-a-la-tv-faudra-til-delocaliser-le-tour-de-france-comme-depardieu-renault-ou-le-dakar/

Bonus : but it looks like it, doesn’t it ?

 

Germany and France will celebrate the Golden Jubilee of their “Entente Cordiale” in Paris

Of course, it’s not as glamorous as a Queen’s Jubilee, and The Economist, French citizens from French speaking  London and other France, Germany, and/or Euroland bashers may smile at “la souris accouchée par la montagne franco-germanique”.

Annee-franco-allemande-Cinquantenaire-du-traite-de-l-Elysee_largeLet’s read a bit more about it anyway :  http://renaudfavier.com/2013/01/20/la-cinquantaine-cest-un-bel-age-en-tout-cas-cest-de-circonstance-pour-celebrer-le-traite-de-lelysee/

Bonus : some may like more glamorous (and British) Jubilees.

Wouldn’t the world be nicer if somebody gave a Green Card to Gérard #Depardieu ?

Green Card

Of course, our world will survive if Depardieu escapes to grey Belgium, white Russia or anywhere else where people from France can get a red carpet welcome, if they can afford a palace and a few glasses of Champagne. But 2013 could be nicer.

Renaud Favier – January 9th, 2013 – http://bonneannee2013.wordpress.com/

 

Don’t (ever) believe the French (media & politicians) : Gerard Depardieu is not the (only) French Bad Boy

Gerard Depardieu - Fidel Castro - Gerard Bourgouin

Or just watch the good guy (in some kind of English from Ireland) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agy4VJcAxDU

Or, better, watch his good movies (in good English) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFXO0giXDoY

Or better still, listen to some bad (not the worst) guy (in French, too bad) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WywjQG3jxY

That’s all, folks.

Some additional e-reading may be needed about artists, politicians, our common world, Europe, Euro-nomics, France, Frenchonomics, the options for future Competitiveness in France in spite of all reports, elections, airports, funerals and funerals of reports, airports or elections …
… about French Politics, French Wine, French Climate, French Changes and other sad issues that may be of interest even if of little importance for the real XXIst century in the world.
Please click on hereafter pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on Fox TV and let others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times or the Economist.

            

Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).
