I want to get better at my french, and i do listen to a lot of french music.
But watching watching some movies or shows would be great, i'm trying to get at least 30 minutes a day in.

So any reccomendations?

Qui êtes vous, Polly Maggoo?
that's my favorite, i love how it captures the 60s
and it's also very artsy and fashion-y.

Ma Vie En Rose is a great movie. It's about a little boy who wants to be a girl.

And even though they speak English, you have to see Le grand bleu.
