Make sure you have a glass of wine for this. Today, I’m not able to blog, so this blog post was created ahead of time, when I DID have time to blog. So, today, I’m going to leave you in the hands of Henri, le Chat Noir.
Henri le Chat Noir
Meet Henri – William Braden’s “Henri 9” means that there are a lot more Henri episodes to watch, along with having a book. I like this one specifically, and think if you have a passion for wine, and a passion for cats – or maybe even dogs, they all seem to have similar thoughts in varying degrees, don’t they? The book about Henri is called, “Henri, le Chat Noir: The Existential Musings of an Angst-Filled Cat”. It should be in the wine library of cat lovers. When you feel like having a glass of wine, a few good chuckles, and something worth reading, pull out those existential musings. I can’t see who any of it would get old. It’s like going back to Seinfeld episodes. They’re always funny.
The author of this video brilliant. From a Wiki page:
The first short film Henri was a film project by William Braden who was studying at the Seattle Film Institute. Braden was inspired by the American perception on French films viewing them as “very pretentious and self-involved. […] And what could be more self-absorbed and pampered than a house cat?”
Braden wrote the scripts while his mother, who is fluent in French, helped with pronunciations and proper usage. Henri was written, filmed and edited in eleven days.
It’s no so much about a cat, as it is the attitude. Very funny and very short, and – again – get a sip of wine to go with it.
