Je miss la Suisse

Yes, mon French c'est tres bon.

Two is megl che one.

Anyway, I made my way to Alliance Française this past weekend, for their annual film festival. On a well-chosen night when they were screening a Swiss film: La vrai vie est ailleurs.

The film was quite good, I enjoyed how it was filmed and how the story was told. I also enjoyed the choice of music in many of the scenes. It wasn't orchestral but nor was it pop music. Actually the sounds in general. In the Düsseldorf sequence, the music chosen sounded almost industrial, matching the setting of a huge train station late at night. In the Naples train vignette the continuous train sounds creating their own soundtrack to the various scenes.

The film started as a short, called Genève-Marseille, and three years later was turned in to a feature-length.

As a side note: I did not catch his name but there is a great bartender at Tap, right near Colony Square. Ask him to recommend a beer.
