"Isn't it romantic"

Our versions of place and space are more often than not fuelled by filmic representations.

Billy Wilder’s Sabrina

The official tagline from the 1954 film was

. . the chauffeur's daughter who learned her stuff in Paris!


Chauffeur's daughter, Audrey Hepburn goes to cooking school to learn to make souffle before falling in love with Humphrey Bogart by mistake and correcting his chapeau on the boat back to Paris.

Voila. A (longer) tagline.

Nowadays 'my Paris’ is intermingled with macaroons, Marais meandering and Julie Delpy’s frentic version of the city.

But this Paris weekend will be about E & B’s wedding.

Happy early weekend.
