I know this is a little off topic, but I was wondering if anyone had seen any good french films.
Last night I saw "Let there be light" (1997) starring Helene de Fourenelles. It was about god wanting Jeanne (Helene) to make his film of peoples dreams. She ended up in a mental institution and all the patients broke out and went to make their movie. It was both funny and uplifting at the same time.
Another really funny french film is this one about a knight and his squire who come from medieval france into present day france. It is funny the way they try and use modern appliances, for example in one scene the squire goes into the toilet and marvels over how clean the water is and starts drinking from it. Turns out this was the highest grossing french film for that year.
I also want to see "Rosetta" when I have time.

My favorite French film is Alisee, set in Quebec. I think it's in Montreal. It's about a girl named Alisee who's trying to find her father, and stays with this couple. It sounds boring, but it's really a great film. It was on Bravo a couple times.

"Day for Night" (La Nuit Americain), Francois Truffaut's paen to movie making. On of the world's great film directors movie about making a movie. Really excellent.
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

My favourite French film is "Sun un air d'autoroute". It's about a guy that gets his ear cut off my a vinyl record and his search to find it. It's totally hilarious :-P It has a small love theme to it, too... but that's not what kept me laughing the whole time

Heehee! What was the name of the one about the knight and his squire? I saw it once when I was little, and would like to see it again... but I can't remember the name of it.

One of my favorite French films is "La Vie revee des anges" ("The dreamlife of angels"). It's about 2 girls trying to make it on their own in the north of France and having mixed success. I also liked "Nikita", the one made by Luc Besson.

Audrey Tautou is one of the most adorable people I have ever seen.
That movie makes me smile all over.

Word of warning: I saw Rosetta and it seriously seriously sucked. There was absolutley no point. I was forced to watch her roam around ruining her and other's lives. it was horrible. On a lighter note: Amelie ruled. That was one of the sweetest movies I've seen all year. It was awesome.
