Hey HoPers!

I'm making a profile of musical arrangements so far from the film Amlie and fancy working on a choral piece. So I thought I could take the first lines of the film and put it together with the music, not too sure which piece yet though.
Anyway, Ive looked everywhere but can only find these lines in English . . . . (but would like them in French)

On September 3rd 1973, at 6:28pm and 32 seconds, a bluebottle fly capable of 14,670 wing beats a minute landed on Rue St Vincent, Montmartre. At the same moment, on a restaurant terrace nearby, the wind magically made two glasses dance unseen on a tablecloth. Meanwhile, in a 5th-floor flat, 28 Avenue Trudaine, Paris 9, returning from his best friend's funeral, Eugne Colre erased his name from his address book. At the same moment, a sperm with one X chromosome, belonging to Raphal Poulain, made a dash for an egg in his wife Amandine. Nine months later, Amlie Poulain was born.

So if anyone has a hand in french . . . . ? hug

Cheers! biggrin

Get the DVD and transcribe the subtitles is all I can think of... (It WILL have a French Subtitles Option)



Good luck with the piece! hug

You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

Green peppers, lime pickle and whole-grain mustard = best sandwich filling.

Le 3 septembre 1973, 18 heures minutes et 32 secondes, une mouche bleue de la famille des Califorid, capable de produire 14670 battements d'aile la minute, se posait rue Saint-Vincent Montmartre.... A la mme seconde, la terrasse d'un restaurant, deux pas du moulin de la galette, le vent s'engouffrait comme par magie sous une nappe, faisant danser les verres, sans que personne ne s'en aperoive... au mme instant, au 5 tage du 28 de l'avenue Trudaine dans le IXe arrondissement, Eugne colre, de retour de l'enterrement de son meilleur ami Emilie Maginau, en effaant le nom de son carnet d'adresses.. toujours la mme seconde, un spermatozode pourvu d'un chromosome X, appartenant M. Raphal Poulain, se dtachait du peloton pour attendre un ovule, neuf mois plus tard, naissait Amlie Poulain.....



Too easy. Should have thought of it before.

Googled amelie "septembre 1973" biggrin
