5 French movies to watch
Hi guys! Bonjour !Watching movies is a big part of our daily lives and if you like V.O. movies, you can easily develop a taste for a language, or at least, enjoy another's culture. Here are five French movies that I recommend.
1)La Grande Vadrouille:
Though it came out in 1966, a while ago, It's still hilarious to see Louis De Funès and Bourvil on screen. For that matter, I recommend any of their movies. They're part of France culture and even if La Grande Vadrouille sets during the war, it's a refreshing and timeless movie.)
A very recent movie, inspired by a true story based on an improbable friendship. It's a simple, yet nice comedy that is worth the look with great actors Omar Sy and François Cluzet.
3) The Artist:
A dramatic comedy following the downfall of the actors George Valentin and the rise of Peppy Miller, sets in the 1920's and 30's and the passage from silent movies to "talkies". A touching hommage.
4) Ne le dis à personne (Tell no one):
An intense thriller based on a novel, with (again) François Cluzet, Guillaume Canet with Luc Besson (producer). A great cast and two hours of chills guaranteed.
5) Tais-toi ! (Ruby and Quentin):
A jovial comedy from 2003, as simple as they come with a dash of suspense while two criminals (played by Gérard Depardieu and Jean Reno) make their way out of the psychiatric aisle of a detention center.
