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 :*

I saw your post regarding the prompts and it reminded me to give you one. It would be lovely if you're willing to write number 68 since I love all kinds of hippy-dippy things. Take your time and love your works!

Thank you, anon. Have a great day 😃

Sheldon stared at the ring box in his hand. What had gone wrong? He replayed his conversation with Amy in his mind. She found their relationship emotionally and physically challenging. Why? He had recently proclaimed his love for her and was much better with physical contact. Sure, he still had a long way to go, but he was improving. It didn’t make sense.

He had come up with the perfect plan to propose to her. It was their fifth year anniversary. What better day to propose than on the date they first met? Even he knew that was romantic. He had spent all afternoon preparing a home cooked meal with all of Amy’s favorite foods. Next they watched one of her favorite romantic French films. She had rested her head on his shoulder, and he didn’t shy away as he once would have. Then they had made out like randy teenagers.

Everything was going according to plan until he began his proposal speech. He had rehearsed it in his mind for a week. Not once did mirage Amy get upset. Yet when he spoke the words aloud to real Amy, she didn’t even let him finish and took offence. Going all in for a long-running TV show was a brilliant metaphor for marriage. If only she had let him continue to that part.

He was going to try again during their video chat, but that didn’t go as planned either. She told him she needed time to reevaluate their situation. How much time? An hour? A day? Certainly not a month?

He sighed and carefully placed the ring box back in his desk drawer. What was his next move? “Think, Cooper,” he instructed himself.

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.
