Its me again, your favorite Brooklyn Francophile with a movie recommendation for you and your students.
Le fils de l'épicier (2007), The Grocers Son by Eric Guirado. I rented this from my local library. Nobody will be offended by this film. In my opinion it can be watched by anybody over the age of about 14, but I will let you be the judge of that. It won awards at two different film festivals. It is in French with English subtitles. I enjoyed it so much I watched it twice ! I love the scenery; the French countryside is a lot different than my neck of the woods in Brooklyn.
I recommend you first watch the trailer without subtitles (full immersion style) then the version with the subtitles and back to the version without and see what happens :)
Let me know...
Here's the trailer without subtitles
