French Film Recommendations


I was hoping the comment section here could be a space for people to find/send French film recommendations. I'll start off with some of the French films I've seen and enjoyed:

Amélie (2001) - A romantic comedy. It's super fun and artistic.

Delicatessen (1991) - A post-apocalyptic dark comedy.

Trois Coleurs: Bleu (1993), Blanc (1994), Rouge (1994) - Drama. Very artistic and emotionally resonant. The director is actually Polish, but the films are in French.

OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006) - Hilarious action comedy. It's a James Bond/spy movie spoof.

Jules et Jim (1962) - A strange drama/romance.

That's not all, but those are my favorite so far! What are your recommendations?

    I would recommend Divines. It's available on Netflix, if you now have Netflix.


    I like "The African Doctor" (English title) or "Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont" (French title). Another one that I really enjoyed was "Les Aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec". "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis" is a funny film, but I had a difficult time understanding the spoken French. Thankfully I had subtitles.


    "Dr Knock", an old comedy with a very good french prononciation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Knock


    All the Jaoui films are brilliant - Un air de famille, On connait la chanson, le goût des autres, comme une image, au bout du conte...


    Thanks for the suggestions!

    L'argent de poche (except for the preaching at the end) and La gloire de mon père (although the book is much better) are both enjoyable.


    Nice idea for a discussion...here are 100 lingots.


    Sacré dieu merci!!!


    Salut! J'ai vu trois de les film que vous avez écrire- Amélie, Delicatessen et OSS 117. Mon préféré film de ceux est OSS. C'est film est très amusant!!

    J'aime bien le film "le Moustache'' lequel est un film dramatique et un peu surrealiste. J'ai aussi vu beacoup de films de la crime comme "le Prophet'' et "Mesrine.''


    Diva (1981), director Jean-Jacques Beineix. Opera music plus crime thriller.

    It's become a classic.
