La vie quotidienne

With the Oscar buzz about The Artist, maybe its time for some other French actors and actresses to get well-deserved recognition. Sandrine Kiberlain was born on February 25, 1968. She’s made almost 40 films since 1986. I really enjoyed her performance in Alias Betty,  a psychological thriller. I first came across her as a singer, however; her 2005 album Manquait plu qu’ça was a critical success in France with some great songs. My favorite is “Le Quotidien”; I just can’t resist singing along to this one. Another album, Coupés bien net et bien carré, followed in 2007.

Today’s expression, la vie quotidienne (lah vee ko-ti-dyen) means “daily life.” It often has the implication of banal routine, the theme of Kiberlain’s song. I don’t think I would mind the daily life of a rising star of French song and film.

  1. Bonjour,
    Pardonnez-moi de vous corriger mais ce devrait être “La vie quotidienne” ou alors “La vie au quotidien”.
    Encore merci pour votre blogue très enrichissant. Moi qui suis Français je découvre des lieux que je ne connaissait pas!
