So you oughta let me know :
Should I watch or should I skip ?
A saucerful (well, half full) of French movies I thoroughly enjoyed watching...
All these movies deserve at least 6.5 in my book. Mostly medium to high (but not astounding) budget and / or public recognition. A complimentary list to my 'Classics among the Classics' one.
Many French films and a few classics, mostly from the 70s & 80s

Title says it all. Usually widely acclaimed and / or big budget movies, featuring world famous actors. Please, also check my other list : "Unforgettable Classics" (minor classics).
Music is the healing Force.of the Universe
(To quote Albert Ayler)
Mostly aired on French TV during the 80s (possibly re-aired
Or when the detail distracts some of us from the bigger picture. Let me mention a few things people :
- I have watched entirely every one of these, sometimes in anger or drowsy, but I did
- I do consider a few ones being pure trash, but this is not a worst I have ever seen movie list, it's really the hype which I am aiming at
- Each time you refer to a movie from this list as a masterpiece, a kitten gets stamped upon in the street, so don't!
Good to awesome movies which didn't quite make it to cult status. "Underrated ones" would not be adequate since most of these are considered gems nevertheless.
Sometimes fan edits are more convenient (shorter), less censored or / and bring something new to fans the Director couldn't fully achieve (such as inserting some deleted scenes). Note that I watched some of these movies' theatrical or Director's cut, but not all. Obviously, corresponding ratings might be biased for not watching the original films in their entirety.
