Movies/tv shows and songs?
does anyone know any good French movie, tv shows or songs? I really want to get better.
Good French movies : Intouchables, Les misérables, La môme are recent movies, and then you have classic movies as "Fantomas" , "La grande vadrouille", "Les demoiselle de rochefort"... Good TV Shows : Le bureau des légendes, Un village Français, Plan Coeur, Dix pour cent, La bazar de la Charité are recent Tv shows, and for classic you can watch "Les Gendarmes de Saint Tropez" ; Comedian in one man show : Jamel debbouze, Le Marrakech du rire, Fary, Ibanoff, Ines reg Good artist in music : Rap : Nekfeu, heuss l'enfoiré, gradur, Ninho, Jul Pop : Angèle, Christine and the Queen Classic : Patrick Bruel, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Céline dion (québec), Edith Piaf, Goerges Brassens, Claude François
Voilà! I hope you'll enjoy discovering some of these examples! (Made by a French person) !
Here's my French song list: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLu-6_ze1HUTQNMDbsp9u7nRJojeX0GveS
The link below lists the 100 greatest French films, according to Time Out:
Many of them are old, but timeless. Several of my favorites:
The Passion of Joan of Arc; Cléo from 5 to 7; The 400 Blows; Amour; Au Hasard Balthazar; A Trip to the Moon (again -- ancient but timeless); Belle de Jour; La Vie en Rose; The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Some of my favorites not on the list: Incendies (stunning!); Paris je t'aime
And he's not everyone's cup of tea, but I happen to have a soft spot for Gérard Depardieu, at least in historical costume dramas: Colonel Chabert (awesome in this!); Cyrano de Bergerac; Tous les matins du monde; The Return of Martin Guerre -- again, AWESOME in this!
I also like the French version of Madame Bovary starring Isabelle Huppert. And she's not bad in Elle, from 2016.
And last but certainly not least -- Diva, from 1981
**Edit: I can't believe that list left out 'Au revoir les enfants' (1987)
Bonjour! I would recommend you try out a subscription to Criterion Channel. I think there is a free 30 day subscription. Although they might be "dated", all of the greats are on that website for streaming. Cocteau, Godard, Renoi, Truffaut... You'll have a great appreciation for French Cinema and we'll be learning the language at the same time.
