I’m always trying to improve my French. One way is by watching French movies, ideally with French subtitles to help comprehension. Then you’re not always translating in your head by reading subtitles in your own language.
Yesterday I discovered that Netflix added subtitles in different languages to some foreign movies and shows. I was able to watch, "Chef’s Table France" in French with French subtitles.
Hopefully, they’ll add this feature to all of their foreign movies.
How do you improve your foreign language skills?

I too love watching Netflix for language practice! I watch in my target language (Spanish) with subtitles in my native language (English). I also buy two of the same novel, one in Spanish and one in English. I read a chapter in English for enjoyment and detailed comprehension and then reread it in Spanish. It teaches me alot of new words this way. Recently, I found a book I wanted to read that does not have an English counterpart, so I am stretching myself reading ONLY in my target language. I am understanding it! (Mostly because it is a young adult novel and not the Pulitzer prize winning type of books I usually read!)

There are two recent lists on the internet:
12 Best French Movies on Netflix in July 2017
On that list I’ve seen:
Delicatessen – I’d only recommend this film if you like dark movies.
Amélie – I loved this movie. It looks wonderful and it’s a whimsical story.
The Diving Bell And The Butterfly – Another great film. I highly recommend this one.
Has anyone seen the other movies on this list?
There’s another list here: 20 Best French Films on Netflix.
What’s your favorite French film on (or off) Netflix?

I loved the French original “Starbuck”. The American remake with Vince Vaughn didn’t come close. Highly recommend.
