Vive La Difference

Here's French hit J'en ai marre ('I'm bored') by Alizée. The singer, melody and dance, with its hint of flamenco, are different from standard fare. The song hasn't been covered much, perhaps because it has become synonymous with the singer and her dance, a rare distinction.

Film Fests
Speaking of FR, MyFrenchFilmFestival is happening online from Jan 15 to Feb 15, 2021. Sundance is happening this weekend. Despite bugzilla, it received a record 15,100 submissions, with passes sold out. Event website navigation is a maze and some pages don't render, catch glimpses here and here.
