Really happy to find this resource. I am an independent filmmaker in Canada, a bilingual country. I am trying to learn French and become better at catering to the many Francophone individuals here in Canada.
I am currently creating a small film completely done in French and I have some questions about the title of the film. I keep getting conflicting opinions from people I ask.
To give some background: it is a short 16mm black and white film that pays homage to the works of Jean-Luc Godard and the French New Wave style of cinema. A female protagonist goes on a bicycle ride across town and along the way has an important, yet subtle shift in attitude [basically from being upset to enlightened]. We're working with a fabulous translator for the narration and there is no dialogue. It's a fun, light-spirited film.
The titles options are:
Véronique en vélo
Véronique à vélo
I would love some opinions on these options. Thank you.
Keep in mind this is a film title. We went through many different renditions, including the use of "bicyclette", but found that the above options were easy, short, and used alliteration. I do like bicyclette, because it sounds classy, and Anglophones would understand the title a bit more, but ah well...
