Saving you that trip to Amazon! Here are a few films that are available online for free. It can be great to show a film in TY and discuss it afterwards. This is great preparation for the Leaving Cert Oral exam where students can discuss a favourite French film! It can sometimes be difficult to find a suitable/ reliable film on the internet so here are a few ideas.
