No. 184: Laughing in French
I have to share this happy news with someone.
Last night I was able to watch the entire French film le Prénom in French (ok, avec sous-titres français) and understand almost everything that was going on. I actually laughed out loud at all the right times and cringed at the cringe-worthy moments, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
The whole time I kept thinking, “Look at me understanding French!”
After 2½ years of struggling with this difficult language, being able to laugh in French seems like nothing short of a miracle.
avec sous-titres français: with French subtitles
le Prénom: the first name / given name; a rapid fire, rich and funny dinner party comedy turned dinner disaster, starring the lovely Patrick Bruel. It was a huge hit in the French theatre before being made into a film.
