    Preferably from the last 20 years.

    more examples of what we have seen;
    Amant de pont neuf *****
    Grand Bleu
    Ensemble c'Est Tout
    Angel-A *****
    Un long dimanche de fiançailles
    La haine (not her style..mine)*****

    Ok?

    Who cares what style as long as they are worthy.

    Man Bites Dog.

    It's Belgian but in French.

    Not too sure your missus would like it, though. Cos it's proper sick.

    Very clever movie, but.

    Edit:
    A camera crew follows a serial killer/thief around as he exercises his craft. He expounds on art, music, nature, society, and life as he offs mailmen, pensioners, and random people. Slowly he begins involving the camera crew in his activities, and they begin wondering if what they're doing is such a good idea, particularly when the killer kills a rival and the rival's brother sends a threatening letter.

    nice Chalice very smooth
    downing..

    A little old but Le retour de Martin Guerre


    French -Canadian movies(not too many good old fashioned romantic ones La Belle Provence tend to like social commentary or sax and violins ) -
    For a true appreciation of Quebec cinema first and foremost anything by Denys Arcand (Les Invasions Barbares -won best foreign language film Oscar. Amour et Restes Humains,Jésus de Montréal),
    Arcand is kind of like the Quebecois version of Steven Soderbergh(when Soderbergh was still any good that is).

    C.R.A.Z.Y. probably the best recent francophone movie .I defy anyone not to like this movie.It's both funny and touching with a killer soundtrack .

    Un Zoo la Nuit is great but not really something I'd take the wife to.The director Léo Lauzon is also another major talent.

    Bon Cop, Bad Cop is a really fun movie and I think the most successful French Canadian movie ever.

    i'd say watchable... a nice film but definitely not a masterpiece.
    soundtrack is quite good though, especially the main song of Patsy Cline.

    What can I tell you ? I liked the essential humanity of the film.It doesn't mean that anyone would feel the same.

    Honestly though I consider myself bilingual , I'm neither fluent nor French . Therefore I'm probably not the best to judge any movie where any subtlety is required (therefore no doubt my preference for ones with broader strokes).
