French Weekend With The French!

This weekend I have been out around Nantes together with Vincent. I took him to Le Reflex to get a coffee and we have been looking at all the different French food products. Sunday we went to the marked and got marguez for our dinner and something sweet for the afternoon tea and we meet a beautiful new friend who was very hard to leave behind.

Sunday Is... no. 6!

Going to an exhibition and finding everything about the house much more interesting than the art.

Sunny Sunny Sunny!

This week the weather has been great. Sunshine every day and no rain. Tuesday and Wednesday it was near 15 degrees and my winter jacket felt way to warm. Even though it has gotten colder I wish that the sun would continue as I am getting a visit from tonight and the next two weeks.
I like to take the coffee outside in the sun and sit watching people passing buy. Besides the flowers already starting to bloom the sun is what really makes it feel like spring. I know many other places it is snowing right now but I hope you will still have a nice weekend. I know I will, no matter how the weather will be.

Yesterday I went to the cinema to see the latest Tarantino film "Django" before it would only be available on DVD. To be honest I always had a bit of an issue with Tarantino, mostly because I think his films contains to much meaningless violence and lack of plot. But I have to admit that lately I have become a bit of a fan and "Inglorious Bastards" definitely made me want to go and see what "Django" was about despite my previous hesitations regarding him. The violence is no doubt still there but in his last two films he gives it a purpose in his mix of historical fact and fiction, so instead of violence just for the sake of violence it somehow becomes productive.
I don't really know too much about the American Civil war or what was before, and I ask myself if all slave owners were as unsympathetic as portrayed, if there were people who dared to say that they didn't agree with this system of treating people as goods and if there were slaves who rebelled. I can't know what could be true and what is merely schemed in Tarantino's mind but in the end I don't care what is true or not cause I am very entertained. 
It ends up being the ultimate feel good film, because the villains get what they deserve and I left the cinema feeling that justice has been served. On top of that I had a nice reunion with Samuel L. Jackson, who I haven't seen for a while and Christopher Waltz played every bit as brilliant as in Inglorious Bastards.
