Absolutely, as an advanced course! I love that film is taught in French schools.
To learn how to watch films, to talk about them, not to be seduced but to discuss them critically - that is priceless. It is the best foundation for media competence.

You have to be taught media competence, but unfortunately this is still lacking in Germany.
