Yelle

Yelle really isn’t that obscure, as far as foreign music goes. Plenty of people familiar with EDM have probably heard Madeon’s remix of the song above. What makes Yelle stand out from the crowd are the band’s quirky electro pop beats and unique lyrics.

diving bell and the butterfly

Le scaphandre et le papillon

This film is based on the memoir of the same name by Jean-Dominique Bauby. The film and the book both show how the life of a man is changed after he suffers a stroke and is left completely paralyzed nearly everywhere except in his left eye. The film has been nominated for several awards and is highly praised by critics.

les-emotifs-anonymesLes émotifs anonymes

This film almost epitomizes French culture by tying chocolate and romance into one. In the film, a shy and emotional chocolatier and her equally shy and emotional boss fall in love, though it doesn’t happen quite easily. Awkward hilarity ensues, and the ending will touch your heart.
