Les Films Français

Half inspired by my upcoming trip to Paris and half by a lovely blog post about foreign films by & everything nice, I have been on a French film kick the past few weeks. Most recently I watched Le voyage du ballon rouge / The flight of the red balloon (directed by Hsiao-hsien Hou, above image). Inspired by the 1956 film by Albert Lamorisse, this film is a mix of quiet and chaos, a beautifully filmed moment of life.

Other films include Un long dimanche de fiançailles / A very long engagement (directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet starring Audrey Tautou, first image below), Un prophète / The prophet (directed by Jacques Audiard, second image below) and Mouchette (directed by Robert Bresson, third image below). What are some of your favorite French films?

  1. Interesting, but couldn’t you correct the title of your article , Film is masculine in French, so it should be ” Les films français ” . If you choose to write in french, do it as the french …

    • Corrected! Thanks for pointing it out. Admittedly, it is a bit careless to put such an obvious error in the title. I wish I could write error-free in French or any other foreign language, but I suppose making mistakes is part of learning a language. The error probably comes from all the German I have been studying lately, which requires a suffix (often ‘e’) at the end of an adjective. Ah, the beauty of language.

  2. Oooh I really want to see Le Voyage Du Ballon rouge. How did you like it??
