You may not realise it, but we owe much of modern enjoyments in life to the nation of France. As the birthplace of cinema, the French gave rise to several important cinematic movements including La Nouvelle Vague and too many great movies to count; they also revolutionised dressmaking, were the originators of haute couture, and therefore brought us the giant fashion houses which now influence global styles such as Chanel, Dior, Lanvin, Yves Saint Laurent, and Balenciaga. On a more down-to-earth level, we also wouldn’t be enjoying goods such as cheeses and wines, were it not for the gastronomically-inclined French people!
