Lawless French
C'est or Il est ?
"The French expressions c’est and il est can be tricky because they are synonymous but not interchangeable. Which one to use depends less on meaning than it does on grammar."
Primaire (☞imdb)
A fascinating look at the workings of an elementary school in France, where Florence, played by Sara Forestier, is a dedicated institutrice. But Florence's life is far from straightforward.

La Villa
La Villa (☞imdb)
Three siblings are reunited in their father's villa after he suffers a stroke. The atmosphere is tense and relationships aren't good, but as time passes some old animosities start to soften as each reflects on their younger days in the Villa.

Le correspondant
Le correspondant (☞imdb)

Based in Lyon this site offers 5 videos per month for free account holders. There are unlimited videos if you pay a subscription, plus other learning aids.

They are short topical videos with French subtitles. You can also add English subtitles or select a slow motion mode, although this distorts the voices and I wouldn’t recommend it.
