French TV

Today I am looking at the tv guide that comes with the weekly paper. This tv film caught my eye. Quite a lot of Brits will not or do not watch French tv, it has a bit of a bad reputation, however there are some really excellent programmes and films if you only look hard enough.
TF2 have made a tele film about Louise Michel, there is a huge amount in Wikipedia about her here. She was in and out of prison but kept her mind very active read this about a prison visit I found it very interesting. I think Louise icône révolutionnaire was a bit of a character!. The actress playing the role of Louise is Sylvie Testud. The French use the word comédienne which is very misleading. Don't sit down expecting to watch a comedy!
