French Toast Movie Review



It’s a typical Afrikaans romantic comedy about a young photographer Lisa (Lika Berning) who discovers that she has a sibling in France. She decides to travel to France to go and find him/her. Along the way she meets French chef Jean-Pierre (Thierry Ballarin) who agrees to help her to find her sibling if she takes photographs for his new cookbook. The movie was shot in South Africa and France. The international setting definitely sells the movie. I am a romantic by nature and enjoyed the beautiful scenes that were shot in Paris. Well done to the editing and photography team it brought out the beauty of Paris and I am sure that a lot of people were inspired to save so that they can see the City of Love after watching the movie. I must admit that the storyline was not developed and conveyed  properly and I felt left hanging with now clear idea about what really happened in  Lisa’s family history. When I walk out of a movie I want to feel that I understand the story but I was left feeling stupid with this nagging question ” Did I miss an important dialog that clarified the story?”. Overall it wasn’t a bad movie and still very enjoyable. Lika ‘s performance was very natural. Sometimes it was only difficult to understand the character Jean-Pierre due to him being French and trying to talk Afrikaans but it can all be part of the charm in this movie. You won’t feel that you waisted money if you go and watch It. This movie isn’t a Christian movie per se,
 but it made me think that all of us have something out of our past that needs healing and we will never know what God planned for your future until it happens!

From me Showhopper!
Enjoy and Blessings!

1. What inspires you?
Firstly, Jesus is a big inspiration for me. I met Him when I was 18. He changed my life. Reality shifted when that happened. We each carry a unique aspect of God, we are His expression. So I want to help people release who He is as them. He's locked up in each one of us and I have declared war on conformity, pretending, manipulation, self-hatred, rejections, fear, ignorance and deception because these keep the light hidden.

My other answer would be pain. The pain I've experienced in my life, I have a strong desire to help other people heal from and overcome the things that have stolen from them and kept them small. I hope my journey can lift their eyes and help them find the way out of their own darkness.

THE ROAR

Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

1.Wanneer het jy jou passie om met klei/keramiek as medium te werk ontdek?
Ek is die jaar na matriek as Rotariër uitruilstudent na Australië. Dit was in 1984. Die skool in Australië het geweier om op daardie stadium ’n “wit” Suid Afrikaner in die skool in te neem. Die enigste tersiëre instansie wat bereid was om my te onderrig was die plaaslike technikon en ook net die kunsdepartement! So ek was baie gelukkig om heeltemal toevallig vir ’n jaar lank ’n diploma in keramiek te kon doen. Die medium het my perfek gepas. Ek het teruggekom en kunsonderwys op Stellenbosch studeer. Op Stellenbosch was ’n wonderlike dosent in keramiek, David Steele, wat my liefde vir klei verder aangemoedig en ontwikkel het.

2. Wat inspireer meeste van jou werk?

Die klei self is die sterkste inspirasie. Klei is ’n wonderlike medium. Wanneer ek met die klei werk is ek baie bewus van die proses. Hie…
