    Have you ever seen any of the old films by Jacque Tati? If you ever run out of titles, let me know… 🙂

  2. Entre les Murs and Molière are great! I had to watch them for French class in high school. A few other ones I thought were great were Tais Toi and Bienvenue les Ch’tis have you seen them?
