Dossier pédagogique par L'Institut francais - Ellen Kotzin:

11. Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont - Liz Maione

Fiche pédagogique for 2016 film about a doctor from Zaïre (Congo-Kinshasa) and his family who move to a tiny town in Picardie, France. Fits well with themes on family, community, world challenges, immigration, assimilation/integration, etc. Vocabulary and exercises are appropriate for students around B1/Intermediate High.

This film is great to show during or after a food unit. There are a few curse words, but I do broadcast the movie to my 7th grade students. It is rated PG-13. Attached are three homework assignments that I assign. Emily Quinn

13. Azur et Asmar - The Princes' Quest: A French-Arabic film by Michel Ocelot - a tale of 2 boys, one a blue-eyed son of nobleman and one a dark-eyed son of a nanny. As they grow up, the nanny tells them enchanting stories of rescuing a beautiful fairy in a foreign land. Once adults, Azur et Asmar set out to rescue the fairy - who will be first? Emily Quinn

14. Le Petit Nicolas - dossier pédagogique par Nicolas Fédélich, professeur des écoles.
From IMDB "Nicolas has a happy existence, parents who love him, a great group of friends with whom he has great fun, and all he wants is that nothing changes. However, one day, he overhears a conversation that leads him to believe that his life might change forever, his mother is pregnant! He panics and envisions the worst." Appropriate for all levels.
