Jean de Florette
Manon des Sources
La Gloire de mon Pere
Le Chateau de ma mere

The first two films are by Marcel Pagnol, and the second two are based on autobiographical novels by him. The films are beautifully shot and just wonderful.
If you want something more gritty then I suggest Spiral, whch has just been on TV but can be found on iPlayer.

Les Intouchables is one of my favourite films of all time - I think you can rent it on Youtube with English subs

I like watching news items in French, on France24 for instance.

Re films, you might like an old film called Les Vacances de M. Hulot.

At which level are you studying French, Alexa?

La Mante (depending on what you enjoy and how o;d you are, of course! It's a crime drama on the edge of horrific)
Call My Agent
Lupin
C'est de Gateau (great for beginners, I find!)
Peppa Pig (and other kid's shows - the vocab is simple enough to understand and they repeat it loads, so you can tune your ear in relatively easily even if you really struggle)
La Famille Belier

Hey Alexa6315

How's your revision going?

Les Choristes is one of my favourite French films! I also found it useful setting the language to French in any movie I watched then popped on the English subtitles if I found it too difficult to understand! This generally helped improve my French vocabulary.

Hope this helps
