In French 2, as we move toward the exploring cities and Paris unit at the end of semester 1, I like to show Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec. It's similar to Indiana Jones and has elements that remind me of other fantasy and science fiction films. It's not the best film ever, but I find it lends itself quite nicely to the theme of my unit. There are many landmarks in Paris that are in the film and there are cultural elements that can be explored more in-depth as well. Plus, you can't beat the ending. My students are always talking about how French films end and this one really makes them groan. :)
I haven't had the opportunity to have any colleagues check for errors. Please let me know if you notice any!
