Ah, France — good wine, great mimes, the best accordion players you could ever find. It's a bastion of culture in an uncultured world; just ask anyone from France and they'll tell you. And as the new international blockbuster "Les Misérables" (now on DVD and Blu-ray) proves, it's also a country filled with amazing history that is perfectly suited for big-screen epics.
Which got us thinking: Is there any place on Earth that has had more historical dramas than France? Sure, there have been plenty of good old-fashioned American period pieces — what with Hollywood being in America and all — but there's just something about France and its complicated history that keeps bringing filmmakers back for more.
So with that in mind, we've put together our ultimate guide to the history of France as told through through the movies. Viva la cinema!
