Fabulous pics, Vicki.I know most of these, but there are a few I must check out! I just recently showed “Ponette” to my French V class. That was a mind-bender for my sophomores! Love French cinema.

Enjoy your weekend!

Taste of France

Amélie remains one of my all-time favorite movies.
Some others (not sure whether on Netflix):
L’Auberge Espagnole
C’est Arrivé Près de Chez Vous (Man Bites Dog in English, but anything with Benoît Poelvoorde is guaranteed to be insane)
La Maison
Ca$h (kind of like Ocean’s 11)
Any of the Asterix films. The one in Egypt is pretty funny, as is the one in England.

Hello Vicki,
Amélie has long been a favorite…but recently on Netflix I watched Populaire which wonderful, and Barbecue which starred the very handsome Lambert Wilson and sometimes a little eye candy is all we need. ; )
Bon weekend


So agree! Wonderful movie!
Also love Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources as well as My Father’s Glory and My Mother’s Castle. Recently saw Un + Une by Claude Lelouche at a French Film Festival and enjoyed – he originally directed Un Homme et Une Femme years ago. Also of course the Belier Family. So many other greats too. Best wishes, Pamela
