better than the movies / by jen geigley

If you haven't seen this yet, you must watch part one and part two (well, part three) of this amazing story.

A Brooklyn man (Todd Bieber) found a lost roll of film in 2010, developed the photos, and then vowed to find their owner. His search ultimately led him to a European adventure and a reunion with the photographer in Paris.

"We sat and drank tea and awkwardly talked," Todd says in the video. "I threw her in this situation and posted photos of her family that ended up all over the internet." She joked with him that her family had started calling him the "boy Amelie," after the character in the French movie who decides to change the lives of strangers around her. You've just gotta see this.

This made me so happy today. I want to have an adventure like that.
