Did You Know?
A February 2020 "The New Yorker" piece reported that this movie is set in a fictional French town called "Ennui-sur-Blasé". "Ennui" and "blasé" are both English words (albeit both words that originate from the French) that mean roughly the same thing: a world-weary boredom, apathy, and sophistication. It is fairly common for French place names to contain the word "sur" ("on") between two other words as a geographic descriptor; for example, the French Riviera village name "Beaulieu-sur-Mer" translates as "beautiful place on the sea". So if it were a real place name, "Ennui-sur-Blasé" would mean, more or less, "Boredom-on-Apathy". See more
