La déclaration d’amour

As I take the metro so often to travel to and from work and the like, I picked up one of those handy free metro newspapers. Inside, I read about a guy who made a video about his love for Lille, his homeplace; the video is about his having left Lille, but taking with him all those special memories, places and people.

Read the article here (in French): http://www.lavoixdunord.fr/region/a-lille-plus-de-32000-internautes-ont-deja-succombe-a-ia19b0n2401414

And here’s a link to the video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOm0Ps2Ydcc

If you understand/are learning French, I recommend a watch! 🙂

 “Il n’en revient pas lui-même. De retour dans sa Lille natale après avoir passé dix années à Paris, Alexandre Contart, 36 ans, a mis en ligne, le 18 septembre, un court-métrage de cinq minutes, dans lequel il déclare son amour pour la capitale des Flandres. Une semaine après, la vidéo a déjà été vue par plus de 32 000 internautes. Le début d’une jolie romance”
