French Movies? :DD

Hey, all my owl family :D So I thought, "Hmm....I don't hear French that often.....then I was like, "I should watch a movie to get used to the language!" The problem is, is that there doesn't seem to be that many movies for amateur French learner that I could find. I'm pretty sure a post like this was made before, but I don't think I saw it....so if you have an French movies that are good for learners, please don't think twice to tell me, because I really wanna watch a nice, interesting French movie. Please keep the movies appropriate (no bad language or stuff) because I don't wanna say those words thinking they're something else. That could ruin my whole career someday.Thank you! :D

DISNEY MOVIES!!! I watch disney movies in different languages all the time!

The Aristocats is amazing in Hungarian, except for Marie's voice. (Marie's hungarian voice is really annoying)

It's called Macskarisztokraták also, which is really hard to read xD

but yes, I would watch disney movies in French. On youtube you can subscribe to DisneyFR. they upload a bunch of trailers and shorts in french :)

Ernest Et Celestine. Animation movie, But great tho

There's a great French comedy movie called "Le Placard". Just for a small synopsis but not spoiling much: the movie is about a man named François who works at a rubber factory and is about to lose his job but learns of an interesting way to keep it. It does have some bad language and is somewhat of an adult movie but I figured I'd put this here in case anyone else was also looking for some French movies as well.

La Famille Bellier. It isn't exactly beginner friendly, its full on French but its a very enjoyable movie.

Since this post is about French, could you move it to the French forum? More of the people who are interested in French will see it there, and it will help keep this forum un-cluttered for those who aren't currently studying French.

Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to French. Here's a guide on how to move a post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16609773.

Thanks :)

Oops, I didn't know that.....I'll do that! Thanks

Ah, there was a very interesting and peculiar French movie I watched a couple of years ago, but I forgot the name... Basically, it was about a young woman who fell in love with a new neighbor, who she becomes incredibly obsessed with. I believe she goes crazy and actually commits murder, so if you don't like that type of violence, then you should not take this suggestion. But, I did learn a lot of French from the movie, as I was a beginner and the plot is engaging. Hope you find it interesting! Though, I highly doubt you can find it since I didn't give you the title... ^ ^

Try to watch Jean Pierre Jeunet's movies like Amelie, Delicatessen, Micmacs and A Very Long Engagement. They're visually so attractive and very fun to watch too :) if you like romance comedy, this movie played by Marion Cotillard, might also sound interesting to you, it's called Jeux D'Enfance (Love Me If You Dare).. I like watching movies including French Movies. And it helps me big time with the language especially vocabulaires, some slangs and the pronunciations as well.. Hope this helps :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/georges836971

I love all those films and highly recommend them too, but I believe it's Jeux D'Enfants (Children's game), not Enfance. Also as much as I love it, I don't think it's what someone would expect from the description or "romance comedy" - it's fairly dark

Maybe you guys should watch the simpsons movie in french HAHA :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MinetteNoir

I don't know how old you are, (lol I don't know if your contact photo is a good ref.) and what your "choice of programming" is, but you could watch a series call Miraculous Ladybug. Subbed I mean. I'm not the world's biggest fan but, idk, it's a good show, especially if you watch it in french.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/georges836971

I normally watch subtitled movies so don't tend to worry about the language being at a good level for beginners, but recently I've taken to watching dubbed versions of fairly straightforward films that I've seen quite recently in English. Things like Marvel's movies etc.

Anything where a lot of what is going on can be gleaned visually and you are also aware of the source (having seen or read it in your native language before (or plan to after)) would work. The Disney movies would fit the bill in this sense, but I have found some children's films tend to often have a lot of fast talking and idioms not applicable to adults so mileage may vary.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LaReina129379

Watch Disney cartoons. they're slower and easier to hear, also, you could turn on English captions.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lis02cheval

that is a great idea to watch French movies . I saw your comment below that said you are a Christian . I am a Christian too and I thought that was really neat!

Le Petit Nicolas. It's a great childs film that we watched at school. I suggest kid shows as they use simpler language

Dofus: Livre Julith

If you can find it and watch it, you won't be disappointed.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BloomingStars-

Oh, are you shadowbanned? Refollow me for a yes.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-BloomingStars-

If you're shadowbanned, Duolingo should appear normal to you, but other people won't be able to see what you write. So far, it appears that you've written nothing back to me. So if you have, and I can't see it, that means you're shadowbanned.
