There’s this website my friend told me, it’s where you can watch a bunch of free disney movies (like DisneyPlus) but it’s all in French I forgot the website name but I’ll reply when I remember it

Or you could always watch regular movies just turn on the French audio instead of english

That's a good idea, thanks a lot.

If you have netflix ,you can see "dix pour cent" . It's a serie about french actors. It's quite popular. For films it depends on your level in French and your tastes. Maybe: " Intouchables" " Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain" For example.

Les Choristes is a good one!

I can't remember, I'm sure it does since it's a famous movie.

Some libraries and universities allow you to create a free account to a website called Kanopy. They have lots of classic French films like Breathless, 400 Blows, Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Playtime and dozens of others.

If you're looking for something more modern, Hulu is streaming 'Portrait of a Lady on Fire' and Prime Video is streaming 'Les Misérables'. Both are fantastic French movies released in 2019

I think the Disney website was disney.hd.tk I’m not sure though...hope this helps ^-^

I heard "Amour" is pretty good

La Haine is easily the best French movie but the language used includes tones of slang words.

Maybe my recommendation is a little cliché but there's a movie called Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amélie Poulain which is a really famous french film

I posted a link to Time Out's list of the 100 greatest French films a while ago in this thread:

[I'm really surprised they didn't include "Au revoir, les enfants" (1987, Louis Malle).]

I would think you could get them, subtitled in English, on Amazon or Netflix.

Hello ! If you have Netflix, you can watch "Family Business" But I don't know if it's available everywhere... And you can search "French" on Netflix to find French movies/series

    Disney Plus, then create a new user and set that user to French. It is great for kid shows in French, our favorite has been Little Einsteins

    "Le bureau des légendes" d'Eric Rochant ("The bureau" in english) on Sundance now (http://frenchculture.org/film-tv-and-new-media/dvd-and-vod/9116-bureau-season-4-sundance-now). It's a fascinating TV series about the french "CIA" (qu'on appelle ici la DGSE). You can also watch the french movie "Jusqu'à la garde" by Xavier Legrand (in english i believe it's called "Custody"), the TV series "Dix pour cent" ("Call my agent") or the Hazanavicius's movies (OSS 117, Le caire nid d'espion and OSS 117, Rio ne répond plus).

    Thanks... I'll check them


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

    The Dreamers might be a good choice!

    le grand méchant renard


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

    I heard 'Le nouveau testament' and 'La famille Beiller' are good movies. Still have to see them though...

    The greatest and funniest french movies that might be worth to watch but hard to catch are with Louis de Funés go try some ;) If you want to have a real challenge try old movies like Manon des sources, Le château de mon père they have a southern accent (marseille)
