chien de taudis

We went to see Slumdog Millionaire at Le Rex cinema in St Jean de Luz this evening. A fabulous film and most deserved of its eight Oscars. Given their highly discerning reputation even the French audience remained rooted to their seats until the final credits had rolled. No dancing though. The one challenge was trying to explain what a slumdog is. They are so posh down here that they don't have slums or even seem to have a direct translation for the word.
