The Movie "Etre and Avoir"

I just watched the French movie "Etre and Avoir." I strongly recommend it to all French learners. It was a little slow at the beginning, so don't give up on it too soon. It is a G-rated documentary (great for any age) about a one room school house in rural France. I wasn't able to find it on Netflix, but my local library subscribes to a streaming service called hoopla, which is where I found it. It was well worth the time.

Oui, j'aime beaucoup la petite fille qui dit, "As-tu mon copin (ma copine)?" à les autres élèves.

I loved that movie, the kids are so sweet! And it was nice to hear some different French, that wasn't what you normally hear in movies. Also nice to see parts of France that isn't Paris ;-)

Most of the kids in the movie got traumatized after it opened.
