Re: A cautionary tale re ALDs

Wow, that's tough. I had a very similar experience 5 years ago with an ALD contract, then an op in a semi-private clinic. I recall that my Mutuelle were excellent, but the system/surgeon stung with a...

Re: Video: Making of Scale model of Old Trafford

This reminds me of the superb French film Le Diner de Cons (The Dinner Game). The film's 'dumbell' Francois Pignon makes models from matchsticks and gets invited to a special piss-taking...

Re: Builder Moving to Toulouse

Re: Views on Molise please.

Did you not try Google?
From what I just read in a 60sec search, the plans to promote the area to tourists would have me running a mile, but everyone to his own.

Re: Naturalisation

Well done! That sounds like quite an accomplishment, especially in a language that would have many expats screaming in frustration. Bravo!

Re: Living in Hungary - why?

Your comment about the French pronunciation of ParEE made me smile. A few years ago we were living in Chantilly, north of Paris.
We'd invited a work colleague to an evening meal...

An interesting thread.
Having just popped in from the French forum, having read and re-read the above comment, I'm having difficulty in understanding it.

Re: Prices of homes sold in France

Thank you Graham! Just booted into Safari on MacOS 10.13 and site loads correctly.

Re: Just moved to Cherbourg-en-Cotentin

Welcome to the France forum!
You may find something in the following link. For something other than short stay holiday properties, sounds like you'd have to search for 'long duree'.
Good luck....

Re: Where to watch french movies

From the apparent list of French films available, I note that La Mante is listed. Watched it on French tv here. Brilliant imho. Carol Bouquet is cold and fearsome in the role. Check out the trailer...

Re: Where to watch french movies

I agree with you.
Incidently the 2019 film you mention 'Qu'est-ce qu'on a encore fait au bon dieu' - as I'm sure you know - was the follow-up to the even more brilliant, 'Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait au...
