Hello, my name is Virginie Pronovost and I am your blogger at The Wonderful World of Cinema. 🙂 I was born in 1995.
I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and I completed a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts (Specialization Film Studies with Distinction) at Concordia University (apparently one of the Best universities in Canada for cinema). I previously did a screenwriting certificate at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQÀM). I might like to be a screenwriter later. I love everything about cinema, particularly classics films. Because of that, I fairly enjoyed my classes of cinema history (or any other courses where we watched some classics). I watch a lot of films and I have a great collection of DVDs and books about cinema. Let’s say that I have an interest for classic cinema since I was about 15. My favourite movie director is Alfred Hitchcock, my favourite actor is James Stewart, my favourite actresses are Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Ingrid Bergman, my favourite character actor is Arthur Kennedy, and my favourite movie is Some Like it Hot.

I’ve decided to start a blog simply because it looked nice. I know some people who are running one and I really admire their work, so I wanted to do the same. It became an addictive activity, and it’s a way for me to express my love for films on an other place than Facebook. As you can see, this blog mainly presents movie reviews, top list and tributes. You’ll rarely see a review of a movie that I don’t like. Why? Because I don’t like writing about stuff I don’t like. It’s not motivating, and I already have to do that at school (sometimes), because I obviously don’t always watch movies I like. This blog has for main objective to honour films, not to destroy them. Anyway, I normally know how to choose well the films I watch, so I don’t see a lot of movies that I don’t like.
I now invite you to read my various articles, hoping you will like them. Please, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts. You can also write directly to me (see contact section).
