Thursday Movie Picks: French Language Movie

This week's theme from Wandering through the Shelves is French Language movies! I love so many of these, this was really hard to cut down to three. 

1) Water Lilies

This is my favorite French film. It's coming of age/sexual awakening/trying to fit in combined. All of those things have been done countless times, but this film feels special.

2) The Intouchables

I expected this film to be a hard drama and very depressing, it was actually very heart warming and pretty funny at times. 

3) Caché


When I first made this list, my #3 was Blue is the Warmest Color. Then I changed it to Tomboy because it wasn't as widely seen. Then I finally watched Caché and knew it was the one that had to go here. Basically what I'm trying to say is there are too many French language films I love. (I could've thrown Laurence Anyways in here too) But Caché was just SO interesting. This creepy guessing game keeps you on the edge of your seat.

  5. The only one I've seen is The Intouchables which I thought was pretty good. I've been wanting to see Cache for some time now. Guess I need to get on it. Water Lilies also sounds very interesting. Great post.

  6. Haven't seen the other two, but I was really surprised by The Intouchables. I thought it would be overly sappy, but it was really well done. Loved Omar Sy's performance, too.

    1. Right? I was expecting it to be more like The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

  8. The Intouchables is the only one I've seen. I enjoyed it. I've heard of Cache but never really knew what it's about.
