and it confirmed my love for the city, and makes me want to go there even more.
Such a good film, if you're a Woody Allen fan check it out. Even if you're not you'll probably enjoy this. Has a pretty good message most people on here would appreciate

Anyone know of any other french films? I know this film wasn't french but I want to watch some french ones now.

Seen it, and I saw the sequel. Was really dope
Also seen Coco before Chanel, I think those are the only french movies I've seen

I have Amelie too, just never watched it. Thanks for reminding me. I'll check back in the morning

I went into the film not knowing much about it, but am definitely glad I watched it.
I'm with you OP, it made me fall for the city of Paris, although I've yet to go.

Such a good movie. 

A Prophet is solid too, it's very long but I enjoyed it.

Diving Bell and the Butterfly is good too, but you need patience haha. 

Haven't seen Leon: The Professional, but I've heard very good things about it.

But overall, Foreign films are awesome

I recommend Amelie too...sort of a chick flick, but still good...it takes place in Paris but has elements of fantasy. Similar to how Do the Right Thing takes place in NY but in a fictional neighborhood.

Le Dernier Combat/The Last Battle from 1983. A weird and unique movie about post-apocalyptic society where everyone has lost the ability to speak. It's shot in black and white and although no one talks in the movie, it's not a silent. Unique concept, and I liked the movie.

Monica Bellucci speaking French 

French is a beautiful language, going to relearn it again. And hopefully I will visit the country soon.

Haven't watched  any French films in a while. Tell No One is a good film, Mesrine too

I recently watched Vincent Cassel as Jacques Mesrine (famous french criminal) in:

1.)  L'instinct de mort (English title: Mesrine: Killer Instinct)
2.) L'ennemi public No. 1 (English title: Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1),

It's also available on Netflix streaming.  I like Cassel as an actor, and both had a lot of action.

OP, I hope you'll be able to go to Paris one day...I loved it and can't wait to go back next year.
