Simple Pleasure Sunday: Kindle Movie Rental

I realize that one of my previous Simple Pleasure Sundays was about French films (which you may read about it here), and I rented yet another one last night. I didn't intend for it to have subtitles. As part of my Saturday night, I perused movie rentals on my Kindle and simply chose one to view. It was under a category, "If you liked Romantics Anonymous, then you'll love ___." My selection was The Women on the 6th Floor.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's set in 1960s Paris. This guy and his wife simply go through the motions with life. Then, they hire a new Spanish maid. She and the other neighborhood Spanish maids reside on the top floor of the building and are truly lively. He mixes with them and learns a lot. The message reflects my desire to lead an intentional and passionate life. It's a fun, sweet movie and I recommend it. I don't often watch a lot of TV and movies, so it was something different to do.

Happy Father's Day to my dad and all the other amazing fathers out there! I hope you enjoy your day! I'm off in less than an hour to spend my Sunday-Monday weekend with my family.


  1. I saw this movie at the theatre when it first came out and can still remember it - it made a big impact on me for a fun, feel-good movie. I loved seeing into their apartments and how they lived their lives too.

    1. I agree that this comedy has an important message, to lead a passionate life.
