Les Poupées Russes

with one comment

Another one of my multilingual favorites, Les Poupées Russes (that’s Russian Dolls to all you anglophones) is the sequel to l’Auberge Espagnole. Being a little older, a little fresher and a taking place in a different scene make the movie, in my opinion, even better than the first. Considering a good friend of mine that lives in Paris just ran into Romain Duris in a bar the other night, it is fitting that I give a little tribute to one of my favorite movies.

Here’s an excerpt from my review over at Been Seen: “If L’Auberge Espagnole is a coming of age movie, Les Poupées Russes is about searching for and finding one’s path in life. Five years have passed since Xavier and his friends lived together in their small Barcelona apartment, but now they are all re-united in St. Petersburg for the wedding of Wendy’s brother William.”

If you weren’t tempted to move to London before, now might be the time…

  1. I have added both these movies to my Netflix because of you! Loved them both the first go around – just so timely to where I’m at. And if you figure out how to get to London, please send me some tips to get back to Paris!!!

    Cheers!
