  • matthew m.

    I’d say City of Lost Children if it were a fictitious France. Or Amélie if I have to pick a real France.

  • une femme est une femme.

    because elegance and vulgarity have never embraced so tightly.

  • Un Long Dimanche De Fiançailles (A Very Long Engagement) or Jeux D’enfants (Love Me If You Dare). They’re both really great!

  • EM

    I lub “Being Jewish in France” – so tight!

    about edith piaf with marion cotillard.

  • Les Choristes is one of my all time favourite films.
    It is about a man who goes to teach at a troubled boys school, and ends up teaching them music. It’s one of the most beautiful films ever. If I were to compare it to an English film, it would have to be Good Will Hunting.

  • Lo.
