Book: 'My Father' by Jean Renoir. An amazing book about Renoir, the painter. It's one of those fabulous first hand accounts that really makes you feel like you've lived with the original impressionists. The stories about the peasant life in Montmartre are fabulous. I share Renoir's feelings about things - architecture - women - the simple good things in life. A treasure of a book. Hard to put down.
Movies: The Well Digger's Daughter & Romantics Anonymous - fabulous french movies.
