Again, I love watching French movies and as part of my French 2 class we are asked to watch a film once this semester in order to write a short compostion about it. This semester’s choice for us was Le Papillon. It is a shorter film that kept me smiling the whole time! If you need a cute film as a pick-me-up, watch this one! Luckily, it is instant streaming on netflix as well!
The story follows the stories of two characters Elsa,
a small 8 year old girl who longs for her young single mother’s attention and Julien, an older gentleman on a quest to fulfill a promise. Their paths collide and you’ll have to watch to see what happens. I promise, you will not regret watching this movie! I have to be honest, one of the reasons I liked it so much is that I think that small children speaking French is absolutely adorable!!! My BF makes fun of me for that, but I can’t help but smile when little French children would be on the metro beside me, chatting away with their parents. 🙂
