    I always show Belleville Rendez-Vous and Le petit Nicolas to my year 7s. For sensible groups, Kirikou is quite nice but has some animated boobs on it- I usually give a lecture on other cultures before showing this one :)

    Etre et Avoir - simple French from the kids on the film in a situation yours could relate too, at least in part. And of course with subtitles in English.

    Has Le petit nicolas got subtitles? I cannot find it with English subtitles so...
  6. http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_3_15?url=search-alias%3Ddvd&field-keywords=le+petit+nicolas+with+english+subtitles&sprefix=le+petit+nicola%2Cdvd%2C756 this link has with Subtitles. La chorale is also a great film for all ages.
  7. Do you think etre/avoir would hold attention for the duration? I have thought about showing it, but felt it would appear dull, although strangely captivating. Did it work?
  8. I agree.I thnk that it is a film that appeals to adults who feel a nostalgia for childhood and small, rural schools. I suspect that teenagers would find it dull and be scornful about lack of 'facilities'.
    I love the film, but need a box of tissues to watch it. Another reason not to show it in class.
