Zazie dans le metro

A 21st century "Zazie dans le metro" as seen in the St. Lazare metro stop on September 20, 2007. This Zazie is a French songwriter born shortly after the book was written. (Her original name is Isabelle.)

The original "Zazie dans le metro", a movie based on the story by Raymond Queneau about a girl, Zazie, who explores Paris in a nonconventional way, despite the fact that the metro is shut down due to a strike (does anything change?) Despite its cute poster, the movie is definitely not for kids. But check out the youtube trailer of the film based on the book. Some hilarious scenes and some good footage of Paris, including an actor riding on the top of the elevator of the Eiffel Tower. (you need to cut and paste- it's worth it!)
