When is a French film not a French film?

When it’s dubbed, that’s when. There’s a site which claims to recommend all the best French films on Netflix. I picked Une fille facile only to find that instead of being in French with subtitles, it was dubbed. In my book, that’s not a French film. I abandoned that and watched a few episodes of Au service de la France, which I found just as brilliant and funny second time around.
