Watched a few yesterday and today.

Let me ask again: Do you still have movies left? Or are you only going to rewatch? You are above me in the list ranking, but I've got nothing left to watch.

There are a couple I have left that have French subs only. I will probably be able to understand, but will look up any words I don't understand.

Which ones?

These are the titles that are available but missing English subs:

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/cezanne/
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/tangos+voles/

Tangos Voles is the only one of those with French subs, but you've already seen it.

These titles are not available online as far as I know:

Did I miss anything? I really hope you found some more.

Oh, and Skoot hansawwar only has French subs. I watched it with an autotranslation.

I've already spoken to you on where to find Barabbas.

I've seen Tangos Voles already, so that's a moot point. I know I have Cezanne. Also, yes, I have Skoot hansawwar left to see.

1. Je t'aime je t'aime (1968)

This film was ok but necessarily disjointed due to what happens to the subject, ok but a bit dated to the sixties
