Paradise Beach 

Paradise beach is a French action movie that was released in February 2019. In this movie, a team of robbers arrives in Southern Thailand, Phuket, which is referred to as Paradise in the movie because of the natural beauty of the place.

Finally, the day arrives when they get caught dead to rights and the movie turns into a thriller when Mehdi, one of the robbers who was imprisoned for 15 years, came out to take his share of the pie. 

The Last Mercenary 

The Last Mercenary is another French thriller that stars Claude Van Damme, Samir Decazza, Assa Sylla, and Alban Ivanon. The movie revolves around a secret agent that works for the government. While on a mission, Claude Van Damme starts seeing his friend’s wife and impregnates her. 

The two are then blessed with a son. After that, the mother of his son asks him for two things, a nanny to look after the child and money that the government should pay. Finally, an agent comes into the picture as a caretaker of the child and the movie continues with the father and son living separately for years. 

Spoiled Brats 

Spoiled brats, pourris gâtés in French, is a French comedy movie that was released in 2021. In this movie, a million works on improving his spoiled children, making them better human beings. For that, he tricks his children and tells them that their fortune is lost.

That being said, he acts poor for more than half of the money only to make his children realize that money isn’t everything at the end of the day and entitlement doesn’t remain forever. The movie continues with the struggles his children go through because of their father acting and living a poor life.


Oxygen is a critically acclaimed French science fiction thriller that was also released in 2021. It revolves around a woman who wakes up in a medical, airtight cryogenic unit. She then finds that the oxygen levels inside the unit are dropping and that is when the movie begins.

Due to memory issues, she had no memory of how she ended up in a cryogenic unit, and there she was assisted by an AI who refuses to open the cryogenic unit and instead, asks for an administrator code. She then provides him with the serial number mentioned inside the cryogenic unit only to find out that the model was discontinued three years ago. With her memory issues, she finds herself in a great mess and the movie continues.


MILF is also one French comedy film that was released in May 2018. The movie is about three women in their forties who are on a vacation in Southern France and there, the trio starts dating younger men. They then meet three young men at a local sailing club. All in their late 20s, almost half their age.

The men, although interested, label these women as MILFs. All six spend most of their time together in Southern France and the movie comes to an end as the vacation ends after a few weeks.

The Takeaway 

Apart from the movies mentioned above, there are a number of French seasons available on Netflix that are quite interesting with great storylines; however, watching a movie is easier as it only takes an hour or two. On the other hand, French seasons are longer and not everyone can make time for them. Therefore, I suggest you start with the movies and must watch the ones mentioned above. I’m confident you’ll enjoy them.
