French movies and TV shows
Guys can you tell me a few French movies and TV shows? Thank you
Some movies that I've watched and liked are: La Haine, Intouchables, Les Choristes and Amélie. Out of those my favourites are the first two.
TV shows: I would recommend 'Mafiosa' (about a Corsican mafia family with a female boss) and 'Les Revenants' (a mystery TV show somewhat reminiscent of Twin Peaks). Youtube is a good place to find some French documentaries (just type in 'ARTE documentaire' and you should get lots of results). Some French movies I like are: Les Petites Mouchoirs, A Bout de Souffle, De Rouille et D'Os and Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud (an oldie (film noir) but a goodie). C'est Arrivé Près de Chez Vous is a Walloon cult movie but it is quite harsh - essentially it's a humorous (although the humour is pitch black) mockumentary following a serial killer during his 'daily routines'.
There is a crime show which in english (bbc) is called Spiral and in french its Engrenages. I really like it. And then you can always fine english movies in french on youtube :)
I'm a fan of the TV sci-fi series Babylon 5, and found that the French dubbed version is available online: http://www.dpstream.net/serie-262-babylon-5-saison-1-episode-01-FR.html The resolution is low, but apparently there never was a high-res version. The dubbing is quite good; better than Sesame Street (with Muppets!)
If you want to watch a light-hearted sitcom especially designed for French beginners, a good one I have just started watching is Extra-French available on Youtube. The actors speak slowly and I find myself understanding at least 20% of the vocabulary learned through Duolingo as well as many new words and differences between two words that sound alike. :)
