October is the month of comedy–a favorite genre for French people – on the France Channel. Along with many others, four movies directed by Francis Veber will be featured. They are: “Knock On Wood” and “The Comdads” which are two cult movies starring Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu (“Cyrano”, “Green Card”); “The Dinner Game” (which earned three César Awards) starring Thierry Lhermitte and the late Jacques Villeret; and “The Jaguar” starring Jean Réno (“Léon”, “Ronin”) and Patrick Bruel.
While you’re in the comedy mood, don’t miss out “Brice From Nice,” a character originally created by Jean Dujardin for a stage sketch, or the family comedy “Houba! On The Trail Of The Marsupilami” directed by Alain Chabat (“Night at the Museum”) adapted from a renown French comic strip.
Sophie Marceau in the spotlight
France Channel will also showcase seven movies staring the beloved French actress, Sophie Marceau, star of the movies, “Braveheart,” “The World is not Enough,” ” La Boum,” “La Boum 2,” “The Student,” “LOL,” “Female Agents,” “Anthony Zimmer,” and “Quantum Love.” Marceau has a new movie just opened in theaters in France called, “Tout S’est Bien Passé,” and taking a deep dive into her past work, while we wait for her new movie to come stateside, is especially satisfactory.
France Channel offers you the best of French television and movies.
