Weekly Honey Jam ~ 'Laisse tomber les filles'


Laisse tomber les filles
Laisse tomber les filles
Un jour see'est toi qu'on laissera
Laisse tomber les filles
Laisse tomber les filles
Un jour see'est toi qui pleureras
Oui j'ai pleuré mais ce jour-là
Non je ne pleurerai pas
Non je ne pleurerai pas
Je dirai see'est bien fait pour toi


Francesca Gregorini's The Truth About Emanuel (aka Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes) is not a film for everyone. The story is slightly melodramatic, and elevated above a Lifetime film only by the exceptional performances from Jessica Biel, Alfred Molina, and Kaya Scodelario. However, there is no denying that the visuals within the film are hypnotic, and Gregorini's use of European style and music are what truly make it memorable. Specifically, the use of France Gall's "Laisse tomber les filles" on the soundtrack sets a moment apart as out of the ordinary, and as such, many similar scenes will linger long after the credits roll. ~RH
