    Yes me too! Did you do the film?

    For 'la vie penible' I got 'la galere' meaning chore/pain/hell.
    The first listening I found so hard. All the questions were on really specific topic areas (cloning dogs/electronic bracelets etc) I thought this year!? The translations were a bit mean I thought.

    Did anyone else do the metteur en scene question which was something like
    "Analysez les principales influences... A votre avis, est-ce que ces influences sont plus fortes sur les techniques ou les themes?"
    Yes! I got 'la galere' as well and I did the metteur en scene question! I've done Les Choristes, and I loved the question but I feel like I could have answered it a lot better if I had time to structure it a bit better than I did (e.g. influence, how it manifests as a theme, how it manifests as a technique, what I think is stronger)

    I put la galère! I did that question too, I did it for La Haine by Kassovitz I hated how many environment questions it had as its my least favourite topic
    Yay!! We've both got one mark in the bag already haha Ah I did Amelie by Jeunet! I said that the influences were stronger on the techniques he used, what about you?

    I'm a bit worried I didnt really mention themes as much but I did justify why techniques were more strongly influenced so hopefully it will be okay!?

    YES that was the question I did!!! I did it on Louis Malle and basically just wrote about his influences, themes and techniques without linking them together because I wasn't sure what the question meant! Somebody please translate it for me and tell me what it was asking??
    (Also yay I wrote la galere)

    I think it means

    "Analyse the main influences on the director you have studied. In your opinion, are these influences stronger on the techniques or the themes" - I think?

    i thought it was medicines because soigner was used in the infinitive wasn't it? as opposed to synonym 'des traitments' but i put all the others so fingers crossed

    That's what I had! I'm hoping my listening/reading marks will make up for what I lost in the French to English translation :/
    I mistook 'cuivre' as meaning leather instead of copper (I was thinking 'cuir') and wasn't sure how to phrase the last sentence (something about how anyone could have been in Jamel's position if fate had decided it)

    I'm sure it will be okay I found that paper so much harder than all of the past papers, was a bit stunned when I listened to the first listening track
