It was love at the first sight

Why "ça a été le coup de foudre" and not "c'était le coup de foudre"

HI Nanis,

The expression

'Ça a été le coup de foudre'

describes something like being hit by a bolt of lightning. So you couldn't use the imparfait, for a sudden instant reaction.

Bonne Continuation!
