I can definitely relate to that sketch sometimes!

I actually saw Les parapluies de Cherbourg at a special screening at a film festival,
hosted by some critic whose name I've forgotten. I was excited, because it's a hard film
to find in the States and I had read so much about it. At the end of the screening I
realized that half the audience had discretely left, but the ones who remained were in
love with the film & spent the rest of the evening gushing over the details with the
critic.

I did think that the beginning and ending scenes were amazing; I just didn't think there
was much of a film in between them.

These movies are maybe not in the category of great but at least I found them entertaining as I like action movies :

Taxi 1-4
Banlieue 13 + Banlieue 13 Ultimatum

Not really action but more thriller :
Les rivières pourpres 1 + 2
Ne le dis à personne

Enjoy! :-)

I'm also in love with that film (all of it). I first saw it on (UK) TV, and later on, I
requested that a nearby French cultrural centre showed it at one of their regular
screenings of French film, and fortunately, they did.

I was therefore shocked when quite a lot of the audience left (not particularly
discreetly), although I think more than half stayed, and presumably liked it.
Clearly it works for some people and not others!

For me the best French film of the recent past is Holy Motors. All hail the weirdness!
