These feel good movies to watch during confinement

On VOD, SVOD, DVD, BLU-RAY or on TV, here’s something to change your mind and cheer you up during quarantine #stayathome.

Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra

“Itineris is right… not to join the SFR! » and other cult lines concocted by Alain Chabat in this comedy will allow you to disconnect during quarantine… without pun intended.

the fabulous destiny of Amelie Poulain

The music of Yann Tiersen, the mischievous smile of Audrey Tautou, the charm of Matthieu Kassovitz, the poetry of Jean-Pierre Jeunet: the cure for gloom.

Little Miss Sunshine

An eccentric family boards a van so the youngest can compete for the Little Miss Sunshine prize. Tender, funny, invigorating!

My Neighbor Totoro

This cult cartoon, Miyazaki’s funniest, is available on Netflix, like many films by the Japanese master. We don’t hesitate.

Let’s sing in the rain

It sings, it dances, it sparkles: Gene Kelly makes your life more beautiful in this Stanley Donen classic which tells the love story between a movie star and the understudy of an actress unable to sing and play in tune , at the time of the transition to speaking.

roman holidays

A princess hides her identity and meets a journalist in Rome: she takes the opportunity to escape her obligations. To travel virtually to Italy in the company of the divine Audrey Hepburn. If you fall in love with the actress, continue with Sabrina, My fair lady and Diamonds on the sofa (see extract).

Mamma mia

A little panache (and karaoke if you feel like it) with this musical carried by the amazing Meryl Streep and the hits of Abba (a sung extract below).


We no longer present this film with 20 million admissions, multicast on TV. But, even for the tenth time, the Omar Sy-François Cluzet duo works every time.

Billy Elliot

Want to dance ? Move your body with this English kid who practices discipline behind the backs of his mining family. A jewel.

Love at first sight in Notting Hill

Because the romantic duo formed by Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts sparks. It’s funny, elegant and boosted by excellent supporting roles.

Love actually

We move on to this other cult romantic comedy where Hugh Grant plays the British Prime Minister. Touching, hilarious.


Why not take advantage of the confinement to revise your classics and redo the complete Indy? We will thus be up to date for the fifth opus, in preparation.

The big bath

Guillaume Canet, Benoit Poelvoorde and Philippe Katerine take synchronized swimming lessons with Leïla Bekhti and Virginie Efira and thus get their heads above water. Irresistible.

Forrest Gump

You’ve probably seen it before, but why not let your children discover it? Tom Hanks is guaranteed to seduce the whole family.

Mary at all cost

This one is without the kids, but the unbridled comedy of the Farrelly Brothers with Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz promises some big laughs. It can’t be refused right now!

Happiness therapy

With such a title, you can’t miss the Jennifer Lawrence-Bradley Cooper duo. The actors play two lonely souls who team up to prepare for a dance competition.


It’s deliciously kitsch but we love John Travolta, Olivia Newton John and the cult songs (and a bit gnangnan) that have since passed into our repertoire. “Tell me more, tell me more…”

My best friends

Fancy an uninhibited comedy where women are far from being treated like fragile little things or jugs? We rush on My best friends and his super effective trash humor!
