Hollywood might currently be the most successful film industry in the world, but it is France that will forever be thanked for introducing the joy of cinema to the world in the first place. The influence of French style on filmmaking is so profound because it has been the purveyor of innovation and experimentation in the film industry. There is a difference between movies and films, and if you want to learn it, then you should spend more time watching French films. Some of the best directors in the world have hailed from France; some of the best directors in the world (who are not French) have received the chance to polish their talents in France. But enough talk of the past! It’s time to look towards the future because some very exciting French films are slated to release pretty soon. So, here’s the list of new French movies coming out in 2019 and 2020. We hope that these latest French movies are as good as some of the recent releases.
14. The Time of the Pirates (TBA)
Before his nephew came to live with him, Gero was already tackling a couple of problems. He had a small theatre where he used to play. But since God pressed the mute button on him, the theatre was out of the picture. Now, he is going to lose it, along with his home, because there is an urban redevelopment project on the way. The pressure and the angst of losing his home are too much, which is escalated by the coming of a nephew whom he barely knows. The young man has his own dreams, but how can Gero help him when he can’t even help himself?
13. Le Voyage du Prince (TBA)
Humans have evolved from apes. But apes belong to a large family of the animal kingdom. In fact, apes further branch out into the biological strata. Since every species is in the process of evolution, would it be so hard to believe that humans are not the only apes to have evolved in such an advanced manner? ‘Le Voyage du Prince’ is an upcoming fantasy film which explores this premise. Tom is a 12-year-old boy whose parents are scientists trying to prove that there are other civilizations of monkeys. But no one believes them. One day, Tom comes across a monkey prince who has been stranded in their world. Will Tom help his parents prove their point to the world, or will he help the prince to go back to his world?
