I've finally begun to learn French. Yay! I've been at it for about two months now and it's going fairly well. I can understand pretty much anything I read now. There are still plenty of words I don't understand, but I understand enough that I can get the gist of most things.
What I really need now is practice *hearing* French. My girlfriend, a francophone, and I speak French at home a fair bit but more would be better.
What I'm looking for are any French movies, videos, podcasts, etc. where there's not a lot of noise. And by noise I mean things like: multiple people talking over each other, very very fast speech, and actual noise that obscures the words. I realize that I won't be able to completely avoid these things and that's fine. But, as much as possible, I'm looking for stuff that's clearly pronounced, and at a steady, measured pace. It doesn't have to be slow, but also not super fast.
Subject matter is more or less irrelevant. I'll watch or listen to pretty much anything. However, to be clear, I'm not looking for "learn French" type material. The learning part I've got under control. I just need stuff in French that a beginner can get a handle on without feeling too overwhelmed.
Bonus points for Quebecois material, though stuff from outside of Quebec is fine too.
