What's the best French documentary on Netflix?

There aren't many available but if you like history, we strongly recommand you watching the two-part documentary Women at War, which traces the overlapping journeys of exceptional women swept up in World War I & 2. And if you want to relive the excitement of France winning the 1998 soccer World Cup and the tragedy of the 2006 loss against Italy, take a chance with Les Bleus : Une autre histoire de France.

Is La Vie en Rose a true story? And does Marion Cotillard sing in La Vie en Rose?

Yes, La Vie en Rose (La môme) is a biopic of French singer and icon Edith Piaf, who lived a very tragic life.
No, Marion Cotillard doesn't sing in La vie en rose. But she trained for dozens of hours to absolutely master the playback of Edith Piaf's songs, as you can see below on BBC's The Graham Norton Show.

I am looking for Neuilly/Neuilly sa mère, sa mère ! (2018). I already saw the first one and it was excellent! Where can I find it in the US?
