French Scattergories Quiz

I had fun with the Color Scattergories Quiz last month and thought we could try a different version today.  Next month I’m headed to France!  We are going to visit friends in Lyon and then to spend some time in Paris.  So, this is French Scattergories. 

List up to 10 titles or movies that are set in France.  The title only counts if you are the only one who lists it.  If there are repeats no one gets points.

So, you may come up with 10 titles and get 0 points or give me one title and get 10 points.   Tricky, huh? 

Feel free to browse your own blogs or bestseller lists for ideas.  You have until Thursday night to submit your answers.

10 points per title.  New Leaderboard.

      20 points. All of these wonderful titles, except Phantom and Ratatouille, were guessed by others. Just saw Ratatouille a few days ago and liked it.

    For the record, when I started my post, Kay’s wasn’t displayed. So I did not intentionally duplicate Suite Francaise. But the more it is mentioned the better – what a wonderful piece of writing that is.

    • Kay says:

      Bumbles, I laughed at your comment. I did my list without looking at Stephanie’s above mine and as I was waiting for mine to post I thought, I hope half of mine aren’t duplicates and everyone thinks I copied! LOL

      You are very right about Suite Francaise. A wonderful book.

      • Bumbles says:

        Oh Stacy you would really like it. The author’s literary hero was Tolstoy. This was her attempt at writing a glorious epic a la War & Peace, except she wrote it about WW2 as it was unfolding in front of her, waiting for things to play out as she plotted the fate of her characters. She did not manage to finish her work because she was murdered in a concentration camp. Her book went undiscovered in her daughter’s care for decades before it was discovered and published just in the last few years. The parts she did write were absolutely beautiful writing – with the same deep character development Tolstoy used – so I would say that she would have certainly reached her goal had she survived. There are notes from her journal published at the end which give you a sense of the directions she was thinking to take each character, so there is some closure – but the parts stand well enough alone regardless.
