An entry by me before the month is done.

1. Cet obscur objet du désir (1977) (rewatch): 8.2 - a great satire on how men desire women as objects. It does become a bit repetitive unfortunately.
2. Céline et Julie vont en bateau - Phantom Ladies Over Paris (1974): 8.2 - Rivette combines the playfulness of his fellow nouvelle vague buddies with an surrealistic take on moviewatching.
3. Trois couleurs: Bleu (1993) (rewatch): 9.5
4. Trois couleurs: Blanc (1994) (rewatch): 8.5
5. Les misérables (1934): 8.2 - a movie that last almost 5 hours but doesn't bore for a second. That alone is enough to give it a place in my own favorite list.
6. Trois couleurs: Rouge (1994) (rewatch): 8.5 - The correct order still is Blue, Rouge, Blanc. ;)

Tati's final Hulot venture is his slowest paced and with a far lower gag ratio, however, it is still a magnificent achievement on its own terms as Tati expands on the automobile anxiety he earlier tapped into in M. Hulot's Holiday. The movements of several of the cars are very funny, and amusing bits include hats stored in spare tire places, though a walking on the dog gag remains the funniest bit.

And that's it for me this round.

It's time to watch Les Vampires to get a million points and overtake me if you haven't already. ;) Thanks for hosting, max!

Congrats on the honeymoon! Have fun! :cheers:

Also, I think you might have miscounted - 5-14 is a range of 10, but you only list 9 films... I've got your total at 25 now. Or did I miss something?

11. Mon Oncle (1958)

sol did it, so I had to also. I enjoyed this more than Hulot's Holiday, but the humor in it just isn't my thing. I did really enjoy the set design and cinematography in this, which made the watch enjoyable.

2. À bout de souffle AKA Breathless (1960)
3. Le tombeau d'Alexandre AKA The Last Bolshevik (1993)

6. La Haine AKA The Hate (1995)
7. Call My Agent, Season Two Episode Six (2017)

1. François Truffaut: Stolen Portraits 1993 - 10/10 - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/f ... portraits/ - Question for native French speakers.

Philippe Léotard as the tragic small-time pimp and crook Dédé in Swaim's seamy, downbeat, and insightful urban thriller.

A heartbreaking central performance of gruff humanity and powerlessness.

I'll have a side of Freedom Fries with thatShow

1. In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni / We Spin Around the Night Consumed by the Fire (Guy Debord, 1978)
2. Laissez bronzer les cadavres / Let the Corpses Tan (Hélène Cattet/Bruno Forzani, 2017) (cinema)
3. SHORTS 20+12+8+25 = 65 m
Van Gogh (Alain Resnais, 1948)
Broadway By Light (William Klein, 1958)
Réponse de femmes: Notre corps, notre sexe / Women Reply (Agnès Varda, 1975)
Puissance de la parole / The Power of Speech (Jean-Luc Godard, 1988) 25 m
4. Le magnifique (Philippe de Broca, 1973)
5. Un homme est mort / The Outside Man (Jacques Deray, 1972)
6. Tout va bien (Jean-Luc Godard/Jean-Pierre Gorin, 1972) (1001-2000 list)
7. Lady Oscar (Jacques Demy, 1979)
8. The Death of Stalin (Armando Iannucci, 2017)
9. Cousin Cousine (Jean-Claude Tacchella, 1975)

Nostalgia, memory...I feel like I've known about this film since shortly after it came out; was it reviewed on Siskel and Ebert I wonder? I was 10 when it premiered in the USA, and had no chance to see it, but did I see reviews? By the time the 1989 American remake came out I worked in a video store, and I remember this being one of our most-requested titles, we had it in 2 of the 3 stores and it kept moving around; perhaps it was out of print? But I never watched it until now. Too bad; while this isn't remarkable or anything, it's a really solid romantic comedy with a particular moral viewpoint - one that you might call selfish and kind at the same time - that I can't imagine translating perfectly to the American version. Marie-Christine Barraulx and Victor Lanoux are both very good as the married (to others) couple-to-be, but it's Marie-France Pisier who really steals the show as the flaky, neurotic wife of Lanoux. This strikes me as possibly having influenced Woody Allen in his late 70s to 80s period, particularly Hannah and Her Sisters.

10. Primrose Hill (Mikhaël Hers, 2007)

More nostalgia, but this time all within the film. A brief (1 hour) look at a group of four late-20-somethings, narrated by a 5th and absent (dead?) member, conjuring memories of a day on the title hill in London, years before, while we watch these people walk and talk - mostly about music - on a perhaps similar hill in London. This struck me as something for those who think there's too much action in Eric Rohmer - a joke I suppose but really there's not much besides what I mention apart from a rather surprising
Spoiler: click to toggleShow
and pretty graphic sex scene towards the end
. That bit of plot threw me and I'm not sure it doesn't really hurt the film, it just seems so out of place and unnecessary, but still I enjoyed the vibe for the most part.

11. Le trou / The Hole (Jacques Becker, 1960)

Prison films and prison-escape films are odd for me; there are quite a few that I love, and none that I can think of that I dislike, and yet I never really feel in the mood to watch them. And I'm not claustrophobic, nor do I really fear the cops. Strange; in any case, I had to get to this one eventually and this was the moment. This doesn't need any lengthy comment from me, y'all have all seen it and nobody's reading this anyway, so I'll just echo the praises the film generally gets - a great, great prison film, and here's a case where a surprise (well, kind of) ending really does work. Amazing performances from the mostly non-professional cast and a beautifully maintained sense of continuous suspense throughout.

12. Les valseuses / Going Places (Bertrand Blier, 1974)

And ya can't win 'em all. The good: the performances are all fine (especially Jeanne Moreau), it's well-shot, it has a nice road-movie lackadaisical feeling, but...it's so horribly misogynous and amoral that I really have a hard time caring much about the good things. Admittedly our two complete and utter assholes, Gerard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere, do seem to "grow up" or get a little less brutal over the course of the film - a little - but Blier seems to want us to like/sympathize with them, or at the very least tolerate them and accept their company throughout, and I guess at this point I can't do it. Maybe in 1974 France this was considered more acceptable?

And that's it for me, thanks for hosting maxwell!
Here's to the fools who dream.

1. François Truffaut: Stolen Portraits 1993 - 10/10 - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/f ... portraits/ - Question for native French speakers. Marcel Ophuls tells a story about how Max referred to Truffaut as “malfrangué” (translated as scruffy). Not sure I’m spelling it right. Does anyone have an idea what the true meaning of this word is? and/or the spelling?
2. Paris-Willouby/Meet the Guilbys (2015) - 5.5/10 - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/meet-the-guilbys/

8. Verdun, visions d'histoire (1928) kind of boring, but some nice footage 6/10
9. La femme de nulle part (1922) 6/10
10. Le Distrait (1970) 6/10 I don’t enjoy Pierre Richard as much as some, but this was moderately entertaining.
11. Le Petit bougnat (1970) 6/10 The things I see for Isabelle Adjani. She was a teenager, about 14 or 15, playing a 13 year-old (13 and 1/2 in fact). It’s not tremendous, but it’s okay.
12. Faites comme si je n'étais pas là/Pretend I’m Not Here (2000) 6/10 https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/p ... -not-here/
13. Dix percent aka Call My Agent, Season Two Episode Three: Norman 5/10 This season is dragging, because it focuses more on the agents than the stars. In the 2nd episode, season two, it was over 15 minutes before Fabrice Luchini appeared.
14.Dix percent aka Call My Agent, Season Two Episode Four: Isabelle 7/10 I love Adjani. This episode was good/better, but not great.
15. Une semaine de vacances (1980) 6.5/10
16. Sur un arbre perché (1971, Serge Korber) 6/10 The “joke” gets old really quickly, but the presence of Geraldine Chaplin was enough to make it worthwhile.
17. Sérieux comme le plaisir (1975, Robert Benayoun) 5.5/10 This is kind of a cheap film, but at least it has Jane Birkin and a small appearance from Serge Gainsbourg.
18.Piège (1970) - weird, experimental French film that I lost patience with over time, even though it was so short.
19. L’Atelier / The Workshop (2017) - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/t ... shop-2017/
20. Pourquoi pas moi? (1999) 6/10 - Coming out story that involves a group of friends.
21. Dix percent aka Call My Agent, Season Two Episode Five: Guy - 6/10 the season continued to be iffy
22.Dix percent aka Call My Agent, Season Two Episode Six: Juliette - 7/10 - final episode - it’s impossible to not like Juliette Binoche. There’s only one question you’ll have to answer after watching this episode and that is would you like it if she licked your face?

30. Paulette - 6/10 - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/paulette/
31. L'âge de raison/Love in the Age of Reason (2010) - 5/10 - This film with Sophie Marceau and by Yann Samuell (same guy who directed Jeux d’enfants/Love Me if You Dare) unfortunately doesn’t ring true or whimsical like some of their previous efforts. It was playing in theaters in France right before I moved there, but left theaters before I could see it. Looks like I wouldn’t have missed anything.
32. Une bouteille à la mer (2010) 6/10 Many cultures clash head-on in this film. It doesn’t always work and it isn’t always compelling, but it’s an okay watch.
33. Belle de Jour (1967) - rewatch - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/belle-de-jour/1/
34. Godard Mon Amour/Le Redoutable (2017) - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/godard-mon-amour/
35. Lotte in Italia/Struggle in Italy - 1971 - One of Godard’s “boring” films was streaming on MUBI. I’ve been struggling to watch this for the past couple of weeks, but it’s dry. Finally, it was almost leaving MUBI, so I finished it. The dialogue is in Italian, and explained in French with a voiceover by Anne Wiazemsky.

And that's it for me, thanks for hosting maxwell :thumbsup:
:thumbsup:

How was Histoire(s)? I don't know a lot about it, but it looks really intriguing...
I quite liked it. It is filled with references to films, arts and litterature quotes, and I'm sure I missed quite a few, especially regarding the latter. It also talks about wars and conflits that took places in the second half of the 20th century.

It can get confusing at times, when Godard decides to mix oral and visual informations and you have to quickly find out the link between them. I admit they were some parts that just flew over my head.
I'm not really familiar with Godard's latter work, the most recent film of his I saw is Nouvelle vague (1990), excluding the short film Je vous salue, Sarajevo (2006). But from I understand his films gets messier and unravel (is that the correct word?), like this serie, compared to his 60's work.

I would recommend spacing each episodes and not bingewatching them, in order to think about each part and to make something out of them.

Congrats on the honeymoon! Have fun! :cheers:

Also, I think you might have miscounted - 5-14 is a range of 10, but you only list 9 films... I've got your total at 25 now. Or did I miss something?
Good catch, and thanks!

And ya can't win 'em all. The good: the performances are all fine (especially Jeanne Moreau), it's well-shot, it has a nice road-movie lackadaisical feeling, but...it's so horribly misogynous and amoral that I really have a hard time caring much about the good things. Admittedly our two complete and utter assholes, Gerard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere, do seem to "grow up" or get a little less brutal over the course of the film - a little - but Blier seems to want us to like/sympathize with them, or at the very least tolerate them and accept their company throughout, and I guess at this point I can't do it. Maybe in 1974 France this was considered more acceptable?

And that's it for me, thanks for hosting maxwell!
I really doubt Blier wants you to find this acceptable, his main stylistical choice in this period is going as dark as possible with his satires, his next film featured mass rapes of men and after that he won the Oscar for a "pro-pedophilia" film.

Final Stats and Challenge Update

Users
Through the month of April, we've had 38 participants in the French Challenge (which just happens to be tied for the 9th most of any Official Challenge we've had on this forum)! psychotronicbeatnik ran away with the challenge, ending up with 100 watches - and (perhaps) coincidentally, this was the 100th time a person hit the 100 milestone!

Rounding out the top 5, with allisoncm, RogerTheMovieManiac88, hurluberlu, and sortile9io finished with 67, 57, 50, and 38, respectively.

Leader board is up-to-date and finalized in the first post.

Years
Films watched so far have ranged from 1896 to 2018, covering 110 unique years in film. 2017 is the most-watched year with 43 watches, followed by 1970 with 32 (all other years were 24 or less). It's nice to see decent representation throughout cinema history, and this is by far the widest range and most number of years I've ever written about in one of these threads. Here's a list of watch count by decade:

Decades List
DecadeCount
1890 4
1900 20
1910 34
1920 17
1930 39

1960 81
1970 231
1980 84
1990 51
2000 65
2010 151

For those of you curious about the 1970s (since that was also an Official April Challenge), here's a breakdown of each year in the '70s:

Films watched
If you're curious to see a list of all the films watched during this challenge, check the spoiler for films and their respective watch counts (after the year). Note that there will likely be a bunch of duplicates as I have not cleaned these data.

Spoiler Tag of the Week
Thank you all updating spoiler tags and amusing me this month! It's been super fun. This week's prize goes to OldAle1; it may be brown-nosing or psychological play, or it may just be that we have similar senses of humor. Regardless, here's the final winner this month:
I'll have a side of Freedom Fries with that

"...was the 100th time a person hit the 100 milestone!"

Sweet! I'm glad I did it with exactly 100 too even though I had no idea that such a grandiose no prize was at stake.

Nicely done :thumbsup:

It looked like Ivan would be the first to get there, in one of the other two challenges, but then he slowed down.

Thanks for hosting a really fun challenge, Maxwell. It must have taken hours to type up every single title that was viewed!

Happy to have made the podium myself and warmest congratulations to beatnik on bringing up a ton in a resounding victory.

Already looking forward to the next incarnation of the challenge!

Vive la France
That's all, folks!

Glad you enjoyed!

I copy everything to a spreadsheet as I go, which is what allows me to run out the weekly stats. So getting that list into the post there was just a few minutes of data wrangling and copying/pasting/formatting. The time consuming part is looking up the films to gather the extra data (I underestimated participation in this challenge). :)
