Les Enfants S'ennuient Le Dimanche

As the days are growing shorter and colder Elliott and I, finding ourselves increasingly indoors, have been indulging in french cinema marathons. Our favorites are as follows:
L'argent de Poche which we have watched nearly a dozen times in the past 2 weeks...

It is beautiful, funny, sad and arguably the best film ever made about childhood.

We have also been enjoying that Le Ballon Rouge and Crin Blanc stream instant on netflix.

And last but not least although I've been unable to find a full version of this little gem we enjoy watching the smattering of offerings youtube has of Zazie dans le Metro, which I was introduced to by a friend who grew up in Paris.

All of these fantastic french films just further confirm that I want to be a french child from the 50's, 60's or 70's when I grow up.
