Le 'blogosphere des echecs'

Le monde français throws up some interesting sites in the chess blogosphere. The latest site I've discovered there is "Echecs, cinéma, TV et DVD... léger", which translated (I had to look up léger!) means "chess, cinema, TV and DVD... lighthearted".

Anyway, it's a fun site that spots chess scenes / references on the big and little screen, and welcomes 'spots' from its readers.

Everytime I try to speak french, I'm reminded of the Fawlty Towers episode where Basil is getting increasingly 'hot under the collar' as he's teased suggestively by a french guest:

Basil: Et maintenant un peu café?
Mrs Peignoir: Ah, oui, s'il vous plait. Café au lait.
Basil: Café what?
Mrs Peignoir: Au lait.
Basil: Ah! Café... Olé!
