    I've seen a lot ... oh, wait. I'm french :D
    but still, there are a lot of classics I never watched too.

    I suppose the french humor is not always funny when translated/localized. especially for USA, they even remake some movies (Les visiteurs) to their own tastes (not funny). or just because they can't stand original foreign movies (intouchable) and have to remake everything their own way and ruin it (My sassy girl [KR])?
    Hopefully, France doesn't remake Hollywood movies, we just enjoy art the way they are seen by their authors. Edit: oh, wait, no, you are right. I saw a French remake of "The fall" series, it was bad, or just not funny to see the exact same scenes again with different actors. I guess I just don't understand the reason behind exact-scenes remakes but with different actors.

    "Les Rivières pourpres" is a really nice movie (and books)!
    I also liked the Taxxi movies and I'm quite sure I've seen other french movies (but with italian dub).

    I don't know that one. I didn't watch lot of de Funes movies.
    it's funny to see people in other countries know about him.

    Seen loads of French movies and I would say my fav is La Cage aux Folles it's so much better than the American remake.

    some classics too, less funny, from Marcel Pagnol books :
    Jean de florette > Manon des sources (from Claude Berri, I never seen the original from Pagnol himself). oh, I didn't know it was a French-Austria movie.
    La gloire de mon père > Le chateau de ma mère.


    I don't remember watching the remake of La cage aux folles.

    Hello,

    The films with the following actors: Louis de Funès (LA GRANDE VADROUILLE) makes me laugh with joy, every time I look at him I can not help but laugh, I saw him, I do not know how many time
    Other actors like: Bourvil, Gabin Jeans, Lino Ventura etc ..., are very pleasant and timeless

    I only know Les Choristes which was very nice actually ... and even though I can't stand the language, the music in this one isn't bad at all.
