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) !

Miraculous Ladybug is always a go to for French learners.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joy.yim

ahh ok thank you.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Neil-VA5WX

I've seen that in English; where does one find it en français, s'il vous plait?


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

On Netflix try "Dix Pour Cent" ("Call My Agent!" in English). It's really entertaining! I watch it in French with French subtitles.

Fernandel, Louis de Funes, and Bourville. Are classics. But the film Jo by Louis de Funes is probably my favourite. You can watch it on youtube.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joy.yim

The link below lists the 100 greatest French films, according to Time Out:

https://www.timeout.com/paris/en/film/best-french-movies

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)

Hello joy.yim!

I recommend you Miraculous Ladybug in the French version - the scenes are set in France and there is both English and French versions. I'm pretty sure that there is subtitles too. Good Luck!

thank you, will do!

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.

ahh that's a good idea, thank you!

"Pomme"; She's a talented young singer-songwriter, try out some of her songs; "Sans toi", "Tous les garçons et les filles" and "les séquoias" are some of the really good ones. I hope you'll enjoy
