France Movies

I'm in the mood for some good France movies. 

I'm going to watch Funny Face today. I started watching it once and for whatever reason, I never finished it. Granted, it's not actually in French, but at least Paris serves as the setting for most of it.  At least I think it does, right?

I've been feeling a little down and overwhelmed by all of these preparations for leaving and as much as I love la langue francaise, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous for the moment when I'll suddenly be inept at complex speech.

That all being said, I feel like I need a good movie to rejuvenate my excitement.
What's your favorite "France" movie? I think my first was Beauty and the Beast, if that counts.


  1. Hi Katrina

    Favourite French Movie?

    Got to be Diva, followed by Jean de Florette and then the two Mesrine films.

    I'm also very keen on Swimming Pool which isn't really a french Film although it's set in France and a lot of French gets spoken.

    There are, however, other reasons why I like Swimming Pool so much!

    All the best


  2. An exciting time for you, my favourite film is Amelie.

    Visit via a Taste of Garlic. Good luck with the move.

  3. Keith - Thank you for your comment and the mention on your blog. I'm not familiar with the other films, but I remember watching Jean de Florette in my high school French class and later Manon de Sources.

    Blu - Thank you for your comment -- Amelie is one of my favorites too.
