Okay does anyone have any good recommendation for films in French that i could watch over the holidays?? or perhaps tv shows or sitcoms??

I've watched Amélie and loved it, and I've just started to watch Le Huitième jour... a fantastic film, in my French class as an end of term treat.

But yeh... what anyone got any ideas?! or suggestions?! I could watch friends dvds with French soundtrack, but it gets a big boring after a while, i want something genuine, French, quirky... just a good watch really.

cheers

If you have Sky, you could also try watching TV5Monde (Channel 799) which shows random TV shows and films, as well as the news and documentaries.

best french movie ever in my opinion is delicatessen. And it will really suit you if you liked amelie. Other good ones are au revoir les enfants, les choristes, and un affair pornographic. I forget how to spell that last one, It's late and i'm tired

I saw that. It was a good, fun comedy.

I'd also recommend, for something a little less comic, A Bout De Souffle by Jean-Luc Goddard. EDIT: I was beaten to it with that one too. Ah well...

amelie is really good, another one like that also has audrey tatou in is called 'a la folie pas du tous'. or 'he loves me he loves me not' as its called in english,( still in french but with subtitles).
belleville rendezvous is a cartoon and silent but i still like it!
paris je t'aime was on sky movies recently and that was quite good. and if you want a really poweful film then la haine is good.
oh and la cage aux folles is hilarious!

i like french films
