French TV and Movies

Postby darlia » 2014-07-09, 23:41

Hello,

I would like to watch french TV shows and movies so I keep up with my french. I don't live anywhere where many people speak french so I don't use it on a regular basis.

My french is not great but I found I was able to enjoy and understand the TV show "The Returned" because they didn't talk particularly fast or in a strange dialect.

Can anyone recommend any other really good french TV shows or movies? I recently tried a comedy movie but they spoke too fast for me.

Thank you! :)

My favorite French Film is Amélie. It's a really a cute romantic comedy. I liked The Intouchables too which was based on a true story. These are probably my two favorite French movies. Also Jean Dujardin has a series of movies that make fun of spy/james bond films called OSS. I've only seen OSS 117 but I liked it. :mrgreen: You might want to watch La vie en rose which is about Edith Pilaf's life.

I don't know much about French movies, but these are some of the ones I liked. I don't know any French tv shows :(

OSS 117? Which one? Le Caire, nid d'espion or Rio ne répond plus? They're funny indeed. :)
Bienvenue chez les ch'tis is kind of funny too, maybe you'll like it.

You can also try to find American movies dubbed in French.
Par exemple, l'enfant croit au Père Noël. L'adulte non. L'adulte ne croit pas au Père Noël. Il vote.

TV5MONDE is actually a great channel. It has a mix of programming from all major French-speaking broadcasters (from France, Canada, Belgium, Suisse and Françafrique). I watch that when I'm staying over with my only friend who has cable TV.

Bonjour Marah. I'm sorry I didn't see this until now. I saw Le Caire the one that took place in Cairo :D The Brazil one is on Netflix maybe I should watch it :P I have been trying to find English movies and tv shows dubbed in French online but I haven't found them :(

Yeah, Amélie was good. I've seen a few other French movies before (all in French class, and no, not the ones you'd expect! :lol:), but most of them weren't that great. :P One of them was Danton (1983, I think). I guess that one really was pretty good (especially in comparison to the rest...) but still not as good as Amélie IMHO. Another one I saw was Diva, which honestly is only good if you're into that sort of thing. :P If you're not (like I wasn't), it just looks really, really bizarre. :lol: There's also La Ballade des Dalton, but I can't honestly say I actually saw it, because everybody else in class was being so goddamn noisy! :P
