Top 100 French Films - SCFZ Poll

At the Super Champion Film Zone film forum, we held a poll to discover our community's favourite French films ever made. Participants submitted ballots of up to 100 films each, and those ballots combined to produce the list below.

We're now holding polls for other countries - Japan is next. Feel free to join us!
