Serial killer booze party
The French Music Bureau's Christmas party at the French Institute was a very civilised way to spend a thursday evening. It kicked off with a showing of Buffet Froid, Bertrand Blier's very black 1979 cult comedy of lovable serial killers (Gerard Depardieu, Bernard Blier and Jean Carmet) with a live musical accompaniment by Olivier Mellano ( it was really good but an occasional break would have been nice for him as he played constantly for the duration of the movie).
There was nothing cold about the ensuing reception where the champagne flowed, the nibbles were forthcoming and the highly amusing company got even more drunk than us..
