Walter Salles: Loin du 16ème


Loin du 16ème is a wonderful vignette, of elegant, discreet poignancy, created by Walter Salles for Paris, je t'aime: a young immigrant in Paris, waking up every morning in her room some place in the outskirts of Paris; leaving her baby in a daycare; the baby is crying, the mother comes back for a minute to sing a lullaby, the baby is charmed; the mother goes on with her commute to the work place, a family in downtown where she takes care of their baby; the baby is crying, the servant sings him the lullaby, the baby is charmed; and the servant thinks it should have been different.


Qué linda manito que tengo yo,
qué linda y blanquita que Dios me dio
Qué lindos ojitos que tengo yo,
qué lindos y negritos que Dios me dio
Qué linda boquita que tengo yo,
qué linda y rojita que Dios me dio
Qué lindas patitas que tengo yo,
qué lindas y gorditas que Dios me dio
