Hors de Prix

I first time went to France when I was 10 years old where we visited Nice, Cannes and Monaco. Eventhough it was a long time ago, it has stayed in my mind as a special vacation. Actually it was at the time of the Cannes film festival but of course I didn't understand the meaning of it then, I was just happy eating still so rare white chocolate and candied apples while my mother was trying to spot celebrities.

At least half of my favourite movies are French and one of them is 'Hors de Prix' where adorable Audrey Tautou and Gad Elmaleh make such a funny couple together. In addition to the beautiful landscapes of Riviera, luxury hotels and restaurants, I was really intrigued about the spending parts when she hits the stores to buy gorgeous underwear, dresses and accessories. But the thing I like the most was the attitude to enjoy the life to its fullest with a little glamour! Eventhough in the end it turned out to be something more than just things you can buy with lots of money..
