Mum on arte.tv

Finally! Stefan Golaszewski's British sitcom is available in France. Arte.tv has put all three seasons of the series online. We discover Cathy, a young widow in her sixties around whom gravitates a merry band of lost people. Hilarious, sweet, and caring, the heroine and the series itself are remedies for the grim atmosphere of the moment. It also allows us to hold out while waiting for season 3 of the other great British series on mourning, After Life.

Visit the ruins of Saint Symeon

Located on the limestone plateau of northern Syria, Saint Symeon is an archaeological site today impossible to access. The Grands site collection of the Ministry of Culture devotes its new web-documentary to it: an interactive and scholarly dive into these walls which, in their splendor time, from the 10th century onwards, welcomed pilgrims by the thousands. They came to receive the oracles, then to honor the memory of the stylite Saint Symeon. The hermit ( or the notorious cracker, depending on whether you believe it or not ) spent 39 years at the top of a column several meters high (without access to streaming).

The Claude Sautet collection on Netflix

Do you miss the atmosphere of cafes? We have the beginning of a solution for you… Netflix has uploaded five films by Claude Sautet, known, in particular, for having been able to capture and use the unique atmosphere of Parisian cafes in his films. This is where his characters reveal the best, and the worst, of themselves, between sincerity and pretense. Great intimate cinema… We particularly recommend The Things of Life with Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider, and Nelly and Mr. Arnaud, with Emmanuelle Béart and Michel Serrault.

A sound walk through forests around the world

The smell of humus, the spongy and crisp soils, the play of lights through the foliage, the fresh air that caresses your face… If you too like walks in the forest, know that a site has identified dozens of soundtracks recorded in forests around the world. You can then, from one click to another, leap from the forests of Sichuan to the island of Baranof, in Alaska, through the woods of Piégut-Pluviers, in the Dordogne.
