Travel Tuesday... a la Provence...

To visit... "Le fils de l'épicier"... The Grocer's Son...
Antoine Sforza, a thirty-year-old young man, left his village ten years before in order to start a new life in the big city, but now that his father, a traveling grocer, is in hospital after a stroke, he more or less reluctantly accepts to come back to replace him in his daily rounds. Back in the village, accompanied by Claire, a young woman he loves but who hesitates to commit herself, he does the job half-satisfactorily. Too blunt, not in harmony with the locals, he offends them more than he serves them. Fortunately Claire, who has more business acumen, helps him to improve his skills. On the other hand, the relationships are tense with his brother François and even worse with his father, who despises him. So when the latter is back in the village, the situation deteriorates...

Yessss... there is more to this synopsis... but that would ruin the movie... instead watch it and ENJOY its beautiful scenery and characters...


You must watch this trailer... then you must rent this movie or you can watch it on your computer via Netflix.com "watch instantly"...



C'est adorable! Andddddd... the lead actor, Nicolas Cazalé, is not hard on the eyes either... isn't that true, Jane? Plus it inspired moi to do this painting (available to be purchased)...
Not only is Fifi inspired by France... clients are inspired and ask moi to incorporate a French atmosphere to their photos I paint... I absolutely LOVE to paint with a French flare... and the best thing is the SMILES it brings to my clients' faces!!! Oooooh BRING it on! Commission moi!!! You will NOT be sorry... I guarantee!

How do you do it? All your lovely paintings have that French feel. Is it the shutters? The iron work?
The flick of #accent# on your brush????
Bien fait!

Your paintings always bring a smile to my face :-)

I know it isn't France, but I bet you'd find lots of painting inspiration in Lunenburg. It has to be the most colourful place I've ever been!!

I definitely need to watch that movie! As long as it has the english on the bottom as I do not know any French. That won't matter though just seeing the beautiful countryside will be enough!! Your new paintings are wonderful!

Atticmag said...

Oh my goodness~!! He looks and acts just like someone I know ;) I must watch the movie now.

You have an uncanny ability to sniff out the most handsome foreign men Ms. Fifi. Perhaps one day I shall commission a painting of the *real* foreign man in my life *swoooon*

Deborah said...

Your paintings are absolutely wonderful. I can see myself in all of them. Right up my ally. Thank you for the info on the movie. I hope it is at Blockbuster. I have been trying to see Coco Chanel since it came out but it is never there.

Kristin said...

Ohhhhhh, I just adore that second one. And who doesn't want a little french flair in their life?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Ah! I will have to see if Net Fliks has this!

Your French flair is definitely an artistic plus!
