Hi,
Does anyone have any recommendations of some good French films? I'm doing GCSE French at the minute, so nothing too difficult!
Thanks! x

Intouchables, a film about an unlikely friendship between a young Black man from the banlieu and a wealthy, older recently disabled White man is a feelgood modern French classic (warning: the French is quite slangy, but it should be very accessible with subtitles)
If you like that, there’s a nice list of big-hit modern French comedies here: https://french-iceberg.com/french-comedy-movies/ - most recent comedyish films should be fairly comprehensible with subtitles!

Hope that was helpful

The English title of it is Private Fears in Public Spaces, its French title is Coeurs. It's quite good.

La Haine's my favourite. Don't know if it's good for study though

i'd second that.

la haine is so dramatic - it's about 3 teenagers in the 'ghetto' of paris, where you see a day in their life and all the violence and nothingness that it entails.

Le Mepris is on YouTube - that's one from the Sixties if you wanna watch a film by the god himself, Jean-Luc Godard.
I'm pretty sure you can also find Amelie on YouTube.

Les diner des cons. Really funny.


They tried to do an American re-make but sh*t flopped and was nowhere as good as the French version.
