    I like comedies, romances, war, action films...bit of anything really! So far I've enjoyed:

    - Belle de Jour (absolute favourite so far!)
    - Amélie
    - Au Revoir Les Enfants
    - Dans Paris
    - Paris, Je T'aime
    - La Vie En Rose
    - La Haine

    I've also seen a couple of others but wasn't that keen (A L'aventure, which was basically this creepy guy trying to hypnotize women into having orgasms :lolwut: and a couple of others I can't remember off hand).

    I'm looking to hit up HMV this weekend, so I was wondering if anyone could recommend anything?

    Edit: Forgot to mention I have also seen (and greatly enjoyed!) Les Choristes, Moliere and Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis.

    Hmm!

    Trop Belle Pour Toi - has Gerard Depardieu in it, and is a really abstract sort of love story. I've only seen bits, but it was captivating and intriguing.

    I also really liked Il Y A Longtemps Que Je T'Aime. It's a modern one, and it has Kristen Scott Thomas in, and the story line is unbelievably powerful.

    Taxi 1-4, Wasabi, L'empire des loups are all easy going comedies.
    Tontons flingueurs is a classic of the 90's, seems to get into the psyche of how french perceived film during that decade... interesting

    Betty Blue (37.2* Le Matin) would be an obvious one to watch. The cinematography and soundtrack are great. Quite a sad story though.

    Also, The Science of Sleep is rather interesting, full of ambiguity and weirdness.

    Moliere is absolutely brilliant, and so are Les Choristes and Faubourg 36.

    Those are my favourite three French films.

    Les Choistes :love:

    I watched this strange film in class once called 'Les chansons d'amour'. I found it a bit creepy, but thought I'd mention it anyway.

    The Diving Bell and The Butterfly!! It's absolutely amazing and is a true story I don't speak French so had to watch it with subtitles but I imagine it's even more breathtaking if you understand the language!!
    COMPLETELY agree, it's my favourite film of all time and it is definitely so beautiful when you understand the french as the subtitles aren't always correct.
    I also like "l'auberge espagnol" (called "Pot Luck" in english) and it's sequel "les poupees russes" ("the russian dolls") is just as good. Hilarious depiction of a bunch of students from all over the world who come together in one house on a year's ERASMUS placement in spain.

    L'auberge espangnol these two are about people essentially on their year abroad :p:
    Les poupees russes
    Entre les murs (it's quite new - 'the class' in english)
    Erm, Etre et avoir is this adorable documentary type film about a rural school
    I also like this film called La Tournuese de page, but it's a bit odd..
