If you aren't familiar with La Grande Séduction, I highly recommend it. It takes place in a small Canadian fishing village (on an island), where the villagers have fallen on hard times and they plan a crazy, crafty scheme to improve their lives. I've been showing the film for vendredi vidéo in French 4 for about 7 years now and it's a favorite! The accent is wonderful and students improve in their comprehension after a time.The story line keeps students engaged and wanting more.
I do have to warn you that there are a couple of scenes in which there is mature content. There is a scene in which several doctors take drugs, another where he is pulled over for the drugs, and then a suggestive sex scene. I don't shy away from the film because of these. I've very frank in the beginning and I explain I'm not promoting or condoning these practices, rather it was a way for the drugs are a way to move the story on in the right direction and the suggestive sex scene.... Well, sometimes Madame does a crazy dance in front of the screen when it's on. My classes just call it "playing jenga", we all chuckle, and we move on. (And bonus: the title has nothing to do with sex. The villagers need a doctor on this tiny remote island, so they need to seduce him, in a way.) You know your students best, so permission slips are up to you.
Fair warning: There is an English version of this. I saw it on Netflix and it was the same, exact script and everything. Just in English. And it wasn't as good. Don't tell the kids!
This is one of the first vendredi vidéos units I put together. There is a listening script at the very end.
Check it out and let me know if you have questions!
