LA MANTE on Netflix
Has anyone else watched the show "La Mante" on Netflix? It's about a French copycat killer. It's a very good drama and listening to the actors speak French is really interesting. Another good show is "A Very Secret Service" set in the 1960's about the French intelligence service. It's a wonderful comedy! Are there any other French shows or movies you would like to recommend? What about musicians/songs?
Another french show on Netflix is 'The Break' ... it's french language, but a Belgian show. It's decent. The thing I like about watching french shows on netflix, especially ones produced by netflix, is that you can watch them with FRENCH subtitles. It's an excellent learning tool. Les Revenants IS on netflix as 'The Returned' but I haven't watched that yet. I have to agree that Marseille is not very good, but I kept with it just for the french practice.
Here's a catalogue of movies/series on Netflix with good subtitles, sorted by language: http://languagelearningwithnetflix.com/catalogue.html
Also, here's a free extension that adds bilingual subs, pop-up dictionary, and improved playback control: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lln-language-learning-wit/hoombieeljmmljlkjmnheibnpciblicm
Don't miss Dix Pour Cent, translated as Call My Agent on Netflix. Very amusing comedy with guest appearances by heavyweights of French cinema. It is one of the most entertaining French language shows I have found there. If you like much darker policier sorts of things try Spiral (Engrenages) with the wonderful Audrey Fleurot among others.
