Cahiers du Francophobia

Rita Kempley wrote:The French, who don't like anybody very much, not even each other, understandably went bonkers for "Life Is a Long Quiet River." A sour little social diatribe by first-time filmmaker Etienne Chatiliez, this tale of two families, a nurse scorned and the gynecologist who done her wrong, wrong, wrong was a moneymaker that won four Cesars (French for Oscar).
Sarah Manvel @ Cinemattraction wrote:French art-house cinema doesn’t always have the greatest reputation. Usually it’s either a lot of naked people being very “artistic”, or a dreary slog through some hopelessly depressing story meant to drain all emotions from the viewers.

Alex Billington @ firstshowing.net
There was a film at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival that is so bad, so poorly made, so terrible, that it doesn't belong on any screen. It belongs in the trash. The filmmaking is amateur, there is no narrative, the imagery (and cinematography) is ugly, there is no coherent message or idea or vision behind it despite claims to the contrary, and it can't be called cinema; it can hardly be called a "film". It just so happens this film is directed by Jean-Luc Godard, a once-great French filmmaker who has lost his sanity at age 83. Is it art? No. Is it experimental cinema? Nope. The film is, both literally and figuratively, a piece of shit - and I'll explain why.

Heh. He's still calling it a film.

She has ruined James Bond, like all the French she thinks it's trash, unlike French cinema which is the most overrated trash there is.

This topic in general? Or that post in particular? The post was some rando hater commenting on how Léa Seydoux ruined James Bond movies. The topic in general is just random internet comments where people are hating on the French.
