Un Film Francais
There I was on Højbro Square and a fashionable woman on a bicycle rode past. That's hardly unusual in this city, I know, but this particular Copenhagener gave me, for a brief moment, the feeling of being in the cinema or, better yet, being a character in a film. Not just any film. A French film. She rode past like a character in a classic film francais and transported me along with her for a moment.
"A French film" speaks volumes but I've been trying to figure out what kind of French film she is a character in. We're not talking Godard here, not at all. I've considered Truffaut, but nah. Rohmer is getting closer, Tati is a vague bet, but I think I've settled on a film by Patrice Leconte.
All these reads like inside thoughts that maybe shouldn't have become outside thoughts... but hey, it's my blog. :-)
