What are some of your favorite french films?

AMELIE!! duh

I watched Raw last week and liked that a lot! It’s pretty gross tho so if you don’t like body horror then.. pass. 

Anything by Céline Sciamma is great - Girlhood, Tomboy, and Water Lilies are all amazing. She also wrote My Life As A Zucchini which I haven’t actually seen yet but it looks very cute (and very sad but like… that’s me)

I’m working through Agnes Varda’s filmography right now and she’s like… fucking iconic pioneer of cinema & if you’re interested in French film you absolutely need to check her out!! My favorite films by her are Cléo from 5 to 7, Le Bonheur and Kung Fu Master. 

This is unintentionally becoming all female filmmakers but I’m gonna roll with it lol. You should check out the works of Claire Denis and Catherine Breillat as well. 

Some other random films: 

  • Persepolis - I’ve rec’d this before & it’s one of my favorite movies ever.
  • The Innocents 
  • 17 Girls 
  • Breathe
  • Student Services
  • 2 Days in Paris

EDIT: Here’s a list of films directed by French women! :) And here’s one of essential French films. Mubi is such a beautiful website I should really subscribe :*

“C'est exactement ça. C'est ce que je veux. Aucune pitié. Souvent il me tend le téléphone, tu sais pourquoi? Parce qu'il oublie. Alors c'est vrai, il a pas spécialement de compassion pour moi. Seulement il est grand, il est costaud, il a deux bras, deux jambes, un cerveau qui fonctionne, il est en bonne santé. Alors tout le reste, maintenant aujourd'hui dans mon état, comme tu dis; d'où il vient, ce qu'il a fait avant, je m'en contrefous.”

I love the French language and that makes me enamoured with French cinema. I’m a movie junkie in general, so when I got Netflix five years ago I discovered so many French films. Films that I didn’t know existed. Well I wanted to share some of my favorite French films in hoping that you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. Discovering something new is one of the best feelings.
