Film show: The best French films of the year


As the Lumières, France's equivalent to the Golden Globes, announce their winners, film critic Lisa Nesselson and Eve Jackson review the selection, which includes a documentary made up of footage shot during the Yellow Vest protests, "The Monopoly of Violence"; as well as "Two of Us," a secret lesbian romance; Maïwenn's ensemble cast dramedy "DNA", plus the animated feature "Josep", about a real-life artist who survived the Spanish Civil War only to end up in a concentration camp in France. 


They also talk about Emmanuel Mouret's "Les choses qu'on dit, les choses qu'on fait," an intricate, talky and gorgeous ensemble piece whose English-language title is "Love Affair(s)".
