French Speaking Music Lover Filter - Help me identify this french song o great hive mind?

Ok, so my french isn't just bad -- it's nonexistant. Can anyone identify the singer and/or title of the song of which there is a snippet inside? If not the singer, can you give me the proper title, or spelling of some of the lyrics so I can google them and perhaps find the singer that way? I love the smooth sound of this clip and would love to find more. It's a great rumba! :) [more inside]

Looking for a French wedding reading

Getting married next week and need a French reading. We're bilingual but our ceremony is all in English. As acknowledgment of the French side of our culture (an as a concession to the French side of the family) we'd like to have a French reading as part of our ceremony. The only problem is that we don't know any appropriate French poetry or other nice words that could be read. The wedding's in a week and I'm starting to freak out a bit, although the worst thing that could happen is we skip the reading (deep breaths....) [more inside]

French Films about Americans in France Filter

I'm looking for French films featuring American characters in France. The years I'm most interested in are between 1945 and around 1970, but if there's something more contemporary I'd be glad to know about it too. I've already looked at a bunch of Jean-Luc Godard's films; now I'm looking to branch out.

Is there a Field Guide to French Pastries?

I want to try every French pastry, over time, and be systematic about it. Walking into a big patisserie, we’re overwhelmed by choice, so before our next trip to France, I’d like to make up a life list. But I haven’t been able to find a complete list of pastries on the web nor in cookbooks. What resources am I overlooking? Let me know your own favorites, including regional specialties. Also, if you know any outstanding patisseries/boulangeries in Normandy or the Loire Valley, please share. My sweet tooth thanks you.

name that SNES game

I am trying to remember the of a SNES game I used to play that had been redone and was made available for PC. There was a post about it on me-fi about a year ago but I can't find it. The premise was that your character was transproted to an alien word and you have to escape their prison and find out how to get home. I have searched the following tags on me-fi: alien, game, games, videogames, and Nintendo. I remember the post mentioning that the creator was French so I even searched that and got nothing. I have searched other places with no luck. All I need is the name of the game and I will be set.

French movie about WWII

When I was in college, I watched a French movie for one of my classes. The premise, as I remember it, was that a French Jew is separated from his wife and child during World War II. He starts paying a old farming couple to hide him, giving them some of the gold and valuables he is carrying. Eventually, the old couple decide that hiding him is rather lucrative, and manage to fool him into remaining in hiding after the war is over so that they can squeeze him dry. [more inside]

S'il vous plait - what's the deal with accented characters in Firefox?

I'm reading through some instructional material regarding the French language from, and am running up against some inconsistencies in the way accented characters are being rendered in Firefox. Some pages render correctly, and others do not - the accented characters are replaced by question mark characters (these pages render correctly in Safari). Why would there be a difference between pages like this?

Mac OS X only knows English

Mac OS X 10.4 has a wonderful little feature associated with : if press crtl + apple + D, it gives you the definition of the word under the cursor. Clearly this is only of limited use to a native english speaker, but I can imagine it being very helpful to non-native speakers, and I've very much love to have dictionaries in other languages (firsly French). However, it appears Apple never bothered to make any. Any idea what the file format is? Or how to make your own dictionary? [more inside]
