My Love Affair with French Films

This goes way back to my introduction to foreign films in high school and continues to this day. There is something about how the French approach cinema and the national sensibility that resonated with the teenager struggling to escape his suburban NJ roots. Whether classic films, the French New Wave, or contemporary films - if it's French I will watch it and will usually love it.
