Wish I had time to see everything.

Voir du pays (2016)

So I’ve realized that I tend to watch French films when I’m on a plane leaving Paris. This one is a war film that deals with the consequences of war set against a backdrop of French soldiers undergoing a decompression program in Cyprus. Even the title (“See the world”) makes an ironic reference to what people say when they join the army. It isn’t for everyone though as it explores topics most people would rather not talk about: PTSD, French soldiers in Afghanistan, women in combat and everyday sexism. Nothing that is easy to digest nor does it make you feel good after watching but I’m glad I’d watched it.

Was glad I managed to spend a few hours at this museum last week. It’s rather well-curated with easily-digestible bite-sized information as compared to the mega fashion exhibitions at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs that can be overwhelming for those without a background in fashion. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the short film about Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé as well as the interviews with those who had worked at the haute couture house. Didn’t know he was such a big fan of Proust whose Du côté de chez Swann is next up on my reading list.
