Currently available on Netflix, 3 French films to (re)discover on streaming. We watched them, we liked them, we recommend them.


Not mentioning Call my agent!, the French series that you have to see. Funny, hilarious, so French, actually so Parisian.




Standing Tall (La Tête Haute), the latest movie by the French director Emmanuelle Bercot with Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier and the young newcomer Rod Paradot, got released in SF last year. We absolutely loved it!

Emmanuelle Bercot and Catherine Deneuve already worked together with the movie On my Way that revealed how positive and creative their collaboration could be. Catherine Deneuve is brilliant and yet humble, gorgeous and simple, convincing, adamant and yet moving. Read more.





We absolutely loved it. It is like a tale, with the charm of a tale, about love andd friendship, and still you feel the pain and the tragedy growing. Got nominated for the Golden Globes.





Film by Emmanuel Mouret

Édouard Baer embodies the French charm. And Cécile de Nice is absolutely stunning despite the jealousy that overwhelnes her.
