Description

You have heard of the film, you've seen the film, you would like to see the film. You would like to understand why it is a major film of the French Nouvelle Vague ( 1959-1968) Well, screen it again and come to enjoy explanations and discussion with people who are as eager as you are to know more about it in a fun atmosphere with...French wine and cheese.

I love what is called in France Cinéma d'auteur, Art cinema and want to share that passion. I'm just an amateur, not a professional but it is really for me one of my major enjoyment to watch films from an era in which profit was not the only reason why films were made.

Teaching French is a passion and a hobby. But, my world would not be complete without my family, my friends, my garden, literature, music, knitting, movies and exercise!!!

Born and raised near Paris, I am a French chef in Ann Arbor. I love sharing my heritage and the joys of a traditional French dinner experience. Looking forward to learning from other people's passion.

Suzanne Murray spent 32 years working at the Earle. It was there that her interest in all things culinarily Italian and French were nurtured. A year in Paris solidified her leanings. Twenty years of teaching high school opened the door to Spanish and she now dwells on the three languages and is obsessed with etymologies. To keep her hands busy, she and her partner bake and sell baguettes, brioche and madeleines.

Cat, thank you so much for the class on Goddard. I am going to watch the movie with a different eye and approach. I would not have been able to "decortiquer" the whole thing without your help. Great class. I loved the whole history about the cinema and its chronology, that was a great idea.

Merci Brigitte. It was great to introduce it and I'm very happy you liked the little 'out of topic' history of French cinema.
