French (le français, pronounced [lə fʁɑ̃sɛ] or la langue française pronounced [la lɑ̃ɡ fʁɑ̃sɛːz]) is a Romance language of the Indo-European family. It descended from the Vulgar Latin of the Roman Empire, as did all Romance languages. French evolved from Gallo-Romance, the spoken Latin in Gaul, and more specifically in Northern Gaul.

French was also influenced by native Celtic languages of Northern Roman Gaul like Gallia Belgica and by the (Germanic) Frankish language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. Today, owing to France's past overseas expansion, there are numerous French-based creole languages, most notably Haitian Creole.

French is an official language in 29 countries across multiple continents, most of which are members of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), the community of 84 countries which share the official use or teaching of French. It is spoken as a first language (in descending order of the number of speakers) in France, the Canadian provinces of Quebec, O... ()

Most of these movies were shot in France (13,945). Popular genres for French movies are Drama (6,133), Comedy (4,661) and Documentary (2,279). The Intouchables (2011), Journey to the West (2014), Amélie (2001), Asterix at the Olympic Games (2008) and March of the Penguins (2005) are among the best known & most successful French movies.

Will they succumb under the storm to the turmoil, or, once again, by mutual aid, cunning and skill, will they triumph over the crisis with panache?
