Last week in Bon Mots, we taught you how to pay a compliment in French.
This week, inspired by both the Golden Globes and some very obvious Oscar snubs, we’ll suggest a person you should compliment: Your favorite film director – in French, that’s la cinéaste preferée.
So whether yours is Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, Jean Luc Godard, or Ben Affleck (who’s definitely our favorite something…) you can start flattering their work… en français!
PS: The only thing we like as much as movies is shoes. The ones above are Elizabeth and James, available on Shopbop!
