SOME OTHER PARIS – A totally different look at the City of Lights (Streaming on YouTube)

An unconventional look at current life in the City of Light, Some Other Parisexamines everything from the Yellow Vest protests to the Parisian art scene through the eyes of expats, immigrants and French citizens. The documentary takes viewers far beyond the Eiffel Tower, past the fancy fashion houses and the haute cuisine.

BBI Boulogne-Billancourt Information talks about Bill & Rosa’s Book Room

There's great shopping on the vibra…

Belinda's sister has also invited Clive Morris, a charismatic young writer and his arrival upsets what is already a very delicately-balanced atmosphere. As the spirit of Christmas takes more and more turns for the worse, tensions mount – as does the comedy. There is a painfully chaotic and s…
