Your Favorite French Film

I'm looking for something new, I've seen most of the classics that one normally associates with French cinema.

Another classic so you've prolly seen it, but I recently watched Elevator to the Gallows, and it was pretty good. It was up on Netflix Watch Instantly dunno if it's still up.

A moderne Frenchie flick I liked was Swimming Pool.

La Boum.

And this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5hrUGFhsXo pretty much b/c it reminds me of watching "La Boum" in French Class.

The series of novels that it was based on is really fun too. Here's the Wiki on the author: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Odier
