French Cinema


The Babylangues French Cinema Evening returns this month with a classic French film. This is a wonderful opportunity for our instructors and their friends to embrace French culture of which cinema plays a big part!

Come and join us for this free event.

Drinks and snacks are on Babylangues!


Join us at Babylangues HQ this month to watch one of our favourite French films, ‘L’auberge espagnole’, which follow the protagonist, Xavier, on his journey to Spain. This 2002 comedy-drama is an amusingly accurate representation of life as an Erasmus student, which we’re sure many of you can relate to.

Played by French actor, Romain Duris, Xavier moves to Barcelona in an effort to learn Spanish before starting a job at the Ministry of Finance. Upon his arrival, Xavier is thrust into a cultural melting pot by sharing a large student house with a cast of diverse students from all over Europe. An Italian, an English girl, a Dane, a Belgian, a German, and a Spaniard all join him in a series of adventures that serve as an initiation to life.

A range of stereotypes and accurate truths come together in this film that touches upon a range of important themes, such as the evolution from student to adult life. The film is trilingual with the students in the flat speaking Spanish or English, whilst Xavier speaks French with his mother and girlfriend.

‘L’auberge espagnole’ was very popular when it was released in 2002 and won a series of prizes at the Cannes Film Festival, the Lumière Awards, and the César Awards.

Be sure to come and watch this brillant film with English subtitles!
