L’Auberge Espagnole

with 2 comments

I wrote a synopsis of Auberge Espagnole for Been Seen last week, I am still wanting to book a ticket to Barcelona. Actually, it’s not that I want to book a ticket to Barcelona, it’s just that I want to recapture that moment of living somewhere else and experience those feelings of being confused and ecstatic all at the same time.

To be honest, it’s the movie that I watch when I feel things have become too routine; it’s a good reminder of why we travel and all the emotions we go through when we leave and when we return home again. Plus Romain Duris pulls off being a slightly awkward, confused, 20-something oh so well, and he looks good doing it.

  1. Hello Anna!
    I like your website! I too am fluent in French and Swedish. I lived in Sweden a total of four years (Goteborg and Norrkoping) and Paris for five years. Currently I live in Seoul, South Korea as a photographer and writer. I loved this movie the first time that I saw it. Have you seen the so-called sequel: Russian Dolls?

    Another movie, among many, starring Roman Duris is just gorgeous: Gadjo Dilo or in English: Crazy (non Gypsy:Gadjo) A wonderful film by Tony Gatlif which explores the lives of a group of Romani in Romania also starring songstress, Rona Hartner. A must see

  2. I LOVE this movie! The sequel “Les Poupees Russe” (Russian Dolls) is pretty good too.
