takin french at college and i have been advised to view as many french language films as possible. any recomendations that arent too depressing? war films would be great but im sure i can slog it out through mushy dramas if they have good cinematography.

thanks, Kading

good cop bad cop; it's a french canadian film but it's hilarious and has many scenes with action and watchitiwowow in them and a shit load of comic relief. Basically it's a quebec cop and a toronto cop who are full to the brim with stereotypes about eachother calling one another basically a lazy and constantly-smoking french piece of shit compared to an uppidy-uppidy bend-over-for-the-boss-and-suck-him-off fagget behind each other's back and who have to catch a killer who's killing field spans both of their provinces. In the end, just like all good'ol ami style films they catch the killer and are good buds. But just like a tim horton's donut, this film is filled with creamy goodness(I'm not talking about a porno here just making a crappy metaphor) which is why I'd recommend you watch it instead of just staring at its sugar coated exterior.(hehe not bad if I do say so myslef...which I do):naughty::smokin:

"Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain", definatly not a war movie, some may say it's a movie for girls but in my opinion it's just a wonderful, fresh piece of art.

Might want to consider the short and simple love story film "Antoine et Colette" by Francois Truffaut, which is a sequel of sorts to the 400 Blows. One thing I love about a lot of French films is that, unlike Hollywood, they don't always try to make everything end happily. Another one you might want to consider the 2003 Bon Voyage, a rather funny film with romance but set in the frenzy of June 1940 France.

Another good one is Les Choristes (2004).

Exactly what I was thinking. You really should see this one!

Le pacte des loups. It's a nice horror/action movie, set in the 18th century where a couple of Fench guys try to catch and kill a bloodthirsty beast that kills every maiden that wanders into the woods. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0237534/
