November DVD Spotlight: French Cinema

This month, come along on a cinematic journey to France, the land of wine, cheese, and some of the best films of all time.  If comedy is your thing, check out the playful visual humor of Jacques Tati in Playtime (1967).  If you enjoy gangster films, you'll like incomparable tough guy Jean Gabin in Touchez Pas au Grisbi (1954).  Looking for a love story?  Everything sounds more romantic in French.
