Dinner and a (French) Movie

Travel to Paris this January without leaving the D.C. neighbourhood of Bloomingdale! It’s French films month at Rustik Tavern, starting January 3rd, 2012 with the 8:30PM screening of Amelie, followed by Luc Besson’s Nikita on January 10th and one of the funniest French movie ever, Le Diner de Cons, on 1/17. All three are excellent French movie picks (so good two of them have even been remade by Hollywood). French film month at Rustik will wrap up with some classics: Luis Buñuel’s oscar winning surrealist masterpiece The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1/24) and The Professional (the 1981 film starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, not the one with Jean Reno…) on January 31st. I would have gone with some fluffier films to warp up the month, like The Closet or My Life in Pink maybe. I think they would be perfect while snacking on a Christina pizza (goat cheese, pears, prosciutto and rosemary. Miam miam) and with a glass of light red wine…
