French Films
I was wondering what your favorite French films were?

I've recently watched The Diving Bell and the Butterfly again and it sparked my interest with French films.

Sorry if there's already a thread about French cinema.

I love French cinema. My favorites are probably these:

Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) - 1964
Jean de Florette/Manon des Sources (Manon of the Spring)- 1986

Other great ones
Les Diaboliques- 1955
Les Yeux Sans Visage (Eyes Without A Face)- 1960
La Mariee Etait En Noir (The Bride Wore Black)-1968
La Sirene de Mississippi (Mississippi Mermaid) -1969
L'Histoire D'Adele H (The Story of Adele H) -1975
La Reine Margot (Queen Margot)- 1994
La Cite Des Enfants Perdus (The City of Lost Children)-1995

Some more recent films I loved:
A La Folie...Pas Du Tout (He Loves Me...He Loves Me Not....)- 2002
Jeux D'Enfants (Love Me If You Dare)- (2003)
Un Long Dimanche De Fiancailles (A Very Long Engagement) -2004

I'm probably forgetting like a million great ones....

I liked 'Summer Hours' by Oliver Assayas and 'Paris' by Cédric Klapisch. Both starred Juliette Binoche.
I like all the films by Godard and Bresson.

Nathalie (2003):totally fabulous and I don't care how bad the reviews were :p

...and the music to les choristes (2004) has to be one of my favourite movie soundtracks of all time...

One I love is deux jours a paris by Julie Delpy. Though I'm totally sure you'd consider it a french movie or not...

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain or better known in America as Amelie (2001). It's certainly a good film and especially a nice introduction to French cinema if you haven't seen any/or just a few French films.

there's la rafle too, I haven't seen it yet but everyone has told me that it's really good and very sad.

And just to put them out there, there's also some humor films that are cult in france like the sous doués, les bronzés, most of louis de funes' movies, and then the more recent ones like chouchou...

Rififi (1955 )


excellent movie about a jewelery heist, famous for the heist scene where there is
no dialogue or music for about half an hour. Trust me, it's absolutely incredible.

this is back when they knew how to create suspense and tension without saying a word.
