Les Coups de coeur Monthly Picks



Nuit étoilée

A lonely little girl feels estranged from her parents, both busy with work. One day, she meets a boy who is very shy too. Together, they decide to leave the city, in order to spot the stars at night... This is the latest work by renowned Taiwanese illustrator Jimmy Liao. Its beautiful artwork (with references to Magritte and Van Gogh), poetic storyline, and subtle feelings make it suitable for all publics and ages.


La lettre du Père Noël

This is Christmas Eve, and the forest is covered with a thick layer of snow. Postman mouse has many letters to deliver to the other animals. But because he is in such a hurry, he slips and drops all the letters in the snow… One of them is so smudged that he cannot tell whom it is for. Fortunately, the other animals help postman mouse decipher who Santa Claus is writing to! A beautiful and delicate Christmas tale by Japanese authors Yukiko Tanno and Mako Taruishi, which has been a classic in France.



Chroniques d'une station-service

In Alexandre Labruffe's first novel, he imagines the everyday life and thoughts of the sole employee of a gas station in the East side of Paris. Waiting for customers, the character contemplates his own position and (ir)relevance within globalization’s networks and flows. Meaningless events, absurd yet realistic situations, and fragments of overheard conversations follow one another in a series of non-sense micro-chapters.


L'auberge espagnole

Xavier (Romain Duris) is a French student who has dreams about becoming a writer. When he goes to Barcelona as an Erasmus student, he shares a flat with roommates from different European countries. Together, they cope with cultural differences and misunderstandings, love, and life-changing choices. Directed by Cédric Klapisch, L’Auberge espagnole is a joyful coming-of-age movie about student life, as well as a reflection on the European identity(-ies).
