Rarely have text and image united to form such cinematic perfection as in Alain Resnais' 1959 classic Hiroshima Mon Amour. A poetic duet of sight and sound, this remarkably intelligent film remains a heartfelt ode to love and loss and to the triumph of memory over forgetting.
Do those who are debating in Paris about the length of Sarah's skirt realize the kind of message they are sending to the Muslim community? Do they realize that forcing people to choose between two sets of values could lead to pushing them away from the national community?
By now, we have all heard of the "legendary" new Apple Watch. But will it really be that legendary? Ingenious marketing and even more groundbreaking products have allowed Apple to build a brand that carries an aura that consumers trust.
We had been transported into another gastronomical zone.
I am a big fan of Norwegian filmmaker Bent Hamer. The Norwegian films of his that have made it to American screens -- Kitchen Stories, O'Horten and now 1001 Grams (currently in limited release) reveal a miniaturist dealing in microcosms that reveal the world.
The Mediterranean island of Corsica has always been a special destination for me. Rich in history, culture, and natural beauty, it offers an amazing mix of activities for the off-the-beaten-path vacationer.

Unlike the scientific marvel of steel and hard lines it's housed in, the pied à terre is cozy and romantic -- think paisley wallpaper, wood furniture and oil paintings. All in all, not a shabby place to view Paris from the best vantage point in town.
Shifting gears in life can be both a tricky and rewarding thing -- just ask Caroline Chabert Graeff, former pro athlete who reinvented herself as the creator of Deckopedia Publishing, a clever new concept (think Wikipedia as a deck of fun activity cards), specially designed for time-crunched people.
This American War Cemetery is unusual, perhaps unique, inasmuch as it unites soldiers from different battles and theaters of war who were brought to Paris to receive treatment in one of her many hospitals. They are lying here, side by side, on a hillside above Paris, in some corner of a foreign field that will forever be America.
No matter where you look, the French countryside is spectacular come springtime, and at these idyllic retreats, the magic is on full display.
