French cinema has given us some tremendous jewels over the years, such as Amelie, L’Atalante, and Les Intouchables, among others. Hence, it’s no surprise that Netflix France is similarly full of incredible movies and TV shows bound to entertain you. Here are the best additions coming to its already magnificent catalog this month.
Here are the best movies and shows you can begin watching on Netflix France starting from February 2021.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Fred Rogers remains one of the most beloved personalities, not just on American television but in American culture. This unique documentary from Morgan Neville looks at both the life and the living legacy of the icon who managed to inspire millions of children by virtue of his life and kind words. This deeply insightful look at what went behind the scenes during the production of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood illustrates what exactly makes him such a beloved figure years after his demise.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Season 7)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is probably one of the funniest series on air right now. It follows a group of police officers in the NYPD’s 99th Precinct. While most of us might have the mental image of New York police officers being serious and sturdy, this group presents a whole different picture. While Captain Ray Holt aims to be as serious and “by the book” as possible, Detective Jake Peralta has a more laissez-faire approach to solving crime. Together with several other characters, each of whom adds a distinct flavor to the show, they try and keep their area safe and secure for all. You’ll be glad to know you can begin binge-watching the latest season of the hit show starting this February on Netflix’s French library.
Fifty Shades Freed
EL James transformed the erotica genre when she wrote the Fifty Shades trilogy. The movie adaptations may not have the luxury to be just as risqué as the books but manage to deliver their fair share of shock-and-awe moments. Fifty Shades Freed marks the end to the story of both Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. They’ve decided to leave the trials, tribulations, and secrets from their past behind and begin to settle into a luxurious married life. However, fate has other plans as their past catches up to them and threatens to derail their happy ending before it’s even begun. Do they get the romantic happily ever after eventually? Or does it all end in tears? You can find out for yourself since the movie is now available on Netflix France.

This causes things to get heated between their families, and the once innocent fling now threatens to destroy their lives.
Partners For Justice
It takes two to tango. This rings true when a recently graduated forensic doctor, Eun Sol, lands a dream job working for her city’s municipal police department. However, her supervisor is a man of few words who prefers solitude. However, Eun knows that if she’s to learn anything at her job, she’ll have to get her immediate boss talking. Things take an interesting turn when a string of murders forces them and the entire department to work more closely to solve the crime.
