Although Lost in Frenchlation sounds like the title of my first 3 years in Paris, it’s actually something much more interesting!
So what is Lost in Frenchlation?
“The concept was born out of the frustration experienced by Lost in Frenchlation’s Co-Founders, Matt and Manon, when they couldn’t go to the cinema together due to Matt’s lack of French language skills. There wasn’t a single cinema in Paris regularly screening French films with English subtitles, meaning that the international community – Paris’ many expatriates, international students and tourists – couldn’t access French cinema, one of the country’s greatest arts and an important part of French culture.”
Thanks to Matt and Manon you can now can enjoy the same French films that the locals are watching, in the same beautiful and iconic cinemas. They currently run 3-4 screening a month at Cinema Studio 28, Paris’ oldest room located in the heart of Montmartre, and the charming and typically Parisian cinema Le Brady on Boulevard de Strasbourg.
Lost in Frenchlation is perfect for anyone who would like to improve their French level or see more French movies in general. It’s a fantastic concept that really gives Expatriates the chance to experience French films, regardless of their French level!
