Caro and Jeunet – Their Art of Creative Movies Exhibit

Poster for Caro/Jeunet exhibit at Halle Saint Pierre Montmartre until July 31, 2018Caro/Jeunet is a Paris/Montmartre exhibit (until July 31) for cinema lovers of the out of the ordinary. Some recognizable film examples are Amélie Poulain, Delicatessen, Alien Resurrection, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, The City of Lost Children. Their film music, special effects, costumes, props are always out of the ordinary. Marc Caro is a graphic arts novelist and illustrator. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is a director. After the “Alien” success, Jeunet left Hollywood. He wanted to go back to his neighborhood and make a little film with some friends in Montmartre. Voilà! The little film became the global success, “The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain”. I can recommend the exhibit and the tea salon for a very tasty lunch.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
