This website is by no means an exhaustive list of French movies, but a simple gateway to the particular films that I have enjoyed. The films are listed alphabetically under the appropriate categories.
I love French movies. Here’s a partial list of why:
- The scenery. I’ve traveled a bit in France, and there is something thrilling about watching a scene in a movie and realizing that you’ve been to the location that it was filmed in.
- French films in general are great ways to learn about the French culture.
- Escapism. Movies have always been about escaping from our day to day lives, and who among us hasn’t fantasized about holing up in a smoky Parisian Cafe while writing the next great American novel?
- The language.
On this site you’ll find an ever-expanding list of some of my favorite French films, and when available, affiliate links to the DVDs and movie posters for those collectors among you.
