PASSION OF DODIN BOUFFANT
NEW IMAGES WITH JULIETTE BINOCHE & BENOIT MAGIMEL
Straight from last night's world premiere over at scandalous Cannes Film Festival where it is in the official competition are new images from historical drama THE PASSION OF DODIN BOUFFANT (La Passion de Dodin Bouffant) previously known as La Pot Au Feu, which is out in domestic cinemas November this year.
THE STORY FOLLOWS
Eugénie (Juliette Binoche), an outstanding cook, who has worked for the famous gastronome Dodin (Benoit Magimel who in real life has a daughter with Binoche) for 20 years. By dint of spending time together in the kitchen, a loving passion has been built between them where love is closely linked to the practice of gastronomy. From this union are born dishes all more tasty and delicate than the others which go so far as to amaze the greatest of this world. However, Eugénie, eager for freedom, never wanted to marry Dodin. The latter then decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.
SURVIVAL OF THE THICKEST
NETFLIX COMEDY TRAILER
If you are in the mood for some comedy, Netflix has announced July 13th as the streaming start date for SURVIVAL OF THE THICKEST sitcom based on Michelle Buteau's book and with her also leading the comedy series with our boy Tone Bell. It follows Mavis Beaumont, who is plus-size and newly single (but not by her choice). Mavis unexpectedly finds herself having to rebuild her life as a struggling stylist. She’s determined to not only survive but thrive with the support of her chosen family, a body positive attitude, and a cute v-neck with some lip gloss.
The nice aspect of French cinema is tat they don't cancell actresses over 40 asthey do in Hollywood. You still have Grande Dames like Binoche playing lead rolesReplyDelete
I hear that this one was done old school, just warmth, positivity and beautiful visuals, they got one of the best marks at Cannes from all the critics. Binoche gets roles because she is international and has world fame, but they do forget their domestic stars, for example Emanuelle Beart or even Adjani, who does not act so often. Where is Sophie Marceau? They have more male stars than the female ones which is fine with me LOLDelete
Talking about the art of seduction from your previous post, cooking is at the top of seduction for me. I think that if I ever had to date again, potential mates wouldn't win me over with a fancy restaurant dinner, but put effort into cooking me a meal? The clothes are coming off.ReplyDelete
Would be nice to have someone cook for us, I am tired of cooking every day for twenty years now....Delete
That is my wish for you, deary. To find someone to cook for you and pamper you like you deserve ♥Delete
Thanks, deary, twould be very unusual to experience something like that.Delete
That's a beautiful and fit (at least looks like that) plus-size lady!ReplyDelete
She does have lots of energy it seems. A bit too aggressive for my taste, but will watch it for my boy Tone Bell whom I adore mucho.Delete
