I have been brooding about my French course. It was written by Jacques Prévert, of all people, so in theory there should be something about it out there even now, but I can't find it as easily as I expect from an internet search. It was a story about Mireille, a Frenchwoman, and Robert, an American who'd taken a year off to go to Europe to find himself. They of course hit it off, and in their wanderings about the place often found themselves being observed by a mysterious middle-aged man -- most of the class worked out at an early stage that this would turn out to be Prévert himself. Does this ring a bell with anyone?
