"The Artist," by Michelle Schwartzbauer

“The Artist,” by Michelle Schwartzbauer

(French) To better understand French pop culture and French people you may meet, you need to have some notion of cinematographic culture.

Recommended for your viewing, these important French films (mainly from the 1990s and 2000s) will help you accomplish just that. Watch them once, or again and again; these popular movies in French culture are not very intellectual, per se (I have never seen a movie from the French new Wave and I am not ashamed to say it), but they certainly are enjoyable. Let us agree that it is not a list of pretension (and obviously not very objective). Feel free to add your own favorite French films in a comment below!
