Must See French Films of the Millennium~ Part 2

So here is Part 2 of's list of Must See French Films of the Millennium:

* Jeux d'enfants (Love Me If You Dare, 2003)
* Paris Je t'aime (Paris, I Love You, 2006)
* Le Nom des gens (The Names of Love, 2010)
* La Guerre est Déclarée (Declaration of War, 2011)
* Camille Redouble (Camille Rewinds, 2012)
* De Rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone, 2012)
* Mon Roi (My King, 2015)
* Divines (2016)

Sad to say, I've only seen two of these this time. But that will change. And what I LOVE about doing these posts is that I always learn something interesting... LIKE a group called Lost in Frenchlation hosts French films with English subtitles some Friday nights at Cinema Studio 28 in Montmartre.
They'll soon be showing at several more independent cinemas to help give the international community more neighborhood flavors. When they realized that for most Internationals in Paris, it's difficult to watch French films because of the lack of English subtitles so they decided to rectify the problem themselves. For more on how they got started, click on Je t'aime me neither.
And you can find Lost in Frenchlation on Facebook Here.

And since Divines' director Houda Benyamina won the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for this film, might have to start with that one.

  1. So glad to know some of these films. I love foreign films. Hope you are enjoying fall Kirsten.

  2. I'm not terribly familiar with French cinema so I really appreciate the list, Kirsten!

  3. Wow, thanks for this, Kirsten. Great to know about the film showings with English subtitles. You know that this has always been a hurdle for me especially when dialogue is fast and mumbly (unlike, say, the news or documentaries). I usually wait until a film is available with subtitles for the hearing impaired! Mind if I post a link to this on my Facebook? XO
