The Fifty Greatest French Films of All Time (and more about Episode 3)

Updated: Oct 29, 2019

In Episode Three of my podcast, I go into detail about the ten greatest French movies of all time, as derived from a survey done by Sight & Sound magazine in 2012. There were forty-five French films on the list, and the images here display them all. To round the list out, I added five movies, acknowledged classics, to make it an more logical fifty.

In researching this post, I mostly relied on Wikipedia articles about the films and principle artists, in addition to my own viewing of the films (and decades of being a movie nut).

If you are interested in A BITE-SIZED HISTORY OF FRANCE, you can find it here.

The intro and exit music is "Jazz in Paris" and available as no copyright music. The guitar bridge is "À Voilà" and available as well under those terms.

The accordion bridge music is "Parisian" by Kevin McLeod.
