Three Good Reasons To Become a Cinéma Vérité Member Today

1. To see an educational French cartoon, "The Art of The Kiss", with English subtitles. (Ooh là là... not to be missed!)

2. To view a dozen photos of "La Provence Florentine"... some with choice photo captions such as "If these flowers were an all-girl 50s rock band, they might be called Les Grimpettes."

3. To witness the answer to the following question: "How Many Clothespins Does It Take To Hang A French Kitchen Towel?"
