Part 1 Best 5 Websites to Watch French Movies Online for Free

1. YouTube


You have to admit that YouTube is just a treasure trove where you can find kinds of videos, including old and rare French movies. And the best part is that many of these films have English subtitles or French subtitles, which is considerate to people knowing no or little French. Yet, it's worth noting that some full movies are cliped into multiple short videos to avoid being taken down by YouTube. If one of your interested movie is available only in parts, you can download the playlists from YouTube at one go and merge them together with the downloder I mentioned before (Yes, it also offers some video editing features too). I've personally collected so many movies, like Les Enfants du Paradis, La Règle du jeu, and Mon oncle from YouTube using the same method. Or if you don't want to go through all that process, you could try other French websites to watch free movies online.



HDSS.TO is clearly the hottest free French streaming site that requires no account-opening to watch a full movie and series(Chrome Web Store installation is required to watch TV series) in standard and high definition. It brings together a wide spectrum of movies and TV series and sorts them into different categories for smooth viewing. It also has more than one server to your option so you can choose the most suitable server to watch French movie online free. The only flaw is that you can’t download these videos unless you are registered as a member.

3. FilmsRIP


FilmsRIP is a streaming site that has varied contents and new full movies are added every day. It is enriched with many latest films as well as classic films that are difficult to find. One more thing I find good about this website is that it has a clean and simple interface, suitable for people requiring a neat environment. It needs no registration to watch a full movie, but the download is restricted to members only. In all, it is a lovely place to watch French movies online free.

4. 01streaming


This is one of the few sites that offers to watch and download films and series free and unlimited. It has a wide range of movies and series dubbed in French. In addition, each video has provided multiple backup servers in case of a broken link, thus satisfying your needs to watch French films online free.

5. Filmfra


This website offers les films francais avec sous-titres francais en ligne gratuit(free online French films with French subtitles). You can find mostly classic French movies of high quality in its collection. But it has only a limited amount of French movies and its download link seems to redirect to other pages.

Part 2 Download French Movies with Free Video Downloader

To download French films from the websites offering no download buttons, simply get a valid URL link of that film and analyze it in a link downloader and you are good to go. The tool WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory that I often use is such a downloader. Let me use this program to download Notre Dame de Paris as an example.

Copy the URL

Before start, please free downloadfree download the software.

Step 1. Copy the URL of the Movie Wanted

Visit, then search and play the movie wanted. On the streaming page, copy the full-length URL on the top of the search bar by either right-clicking your mouse or using “Ctrl+A” then “Ctrl+C” on the keyboard.

Paste and Analyze the URL

Step 2. Paste and Analyze the URL

Launch HD Video Converter Factory, and click on “Downloader”. In Video Downloader, hit “Add Download” and paste and analyze the URL in the pop-up interface. Then, wait for a few seconds until the detailed information of the wanted movie appears. Next, choose the format and resolution of your output video/audio. At the bottom area, you can tick off “Original Subtitles” and pick “Language” of the movie if there are multiple subtitles and soundtracks embedded within the movie. After all is done, click “OK” to add it to the download list.

Tips: You can add more than one video/audio into the download list using the same method for later batch downloading.

Download the French Movie

Step 3. Download the French Movie

At the movie added, you can leave the title as default or rename it. Then, click the inverted triangle to choose the output destination of your video on the bottom of this downloader. Finally, hit “Download All” to begin the downloading process.

At last...
