May 1 is a public holiday.  This means that most things will be closed so I headed out to Monoprix to stock up as if a storm were coming.  I also took a quick walk around the nearby mall.  The shopping center is filled with many interesting and high end stores.  I am sure that I will be returning there soon to explore some more, especially the Marks & Spencer store.

That evening I headed to the movie theater in the mall.  I bought a 5 movie pass so tonight's outing was 1/5.  The movie was called "Pas son genre"/"Not His Type".  It was a romance about a high school philosophy teacher from Paris who is unwillingly transferred to a school in the much less cosmopolitan North.  He starts dating his hairdresser in his new town, but love is not easy because they are culturally so different from each other.  Of course, the end had a twist to it.  No happily-ever-after American wrap up.  I enjoyed watching it and even days later, I am still pondering the ending.
