Real comparison between two great european nations. History : France Music : UK Painting/Sculpture : France Scenery, architecture, cultural heritage : France Literature (includes philosophy) : France by far Cinema : the hardest one tbh, can't decide. Theater : very hard too. 55/45 in favor of France. Sorry UK but imo moliere, racine and corneille too stronk for shakespeare Sports : UK Language : really subjective English is the result of a germanic language mixed with a bit of french Most intelligent people : UK (the election of Macron proves this point on its own) France wins but the question remains : How is it possible to produce so many talents and such a stupid people ?

2017-06-24 15:30
Cinema: UK aswell. We produce so many good films. I couldn't name a single french film. The UK has produced better literature as well. I think this guy must be baiting
2017-06-18 00:38
It's because british cinema and british film directors are more popular. French cinema is a little bit more "underground" but it has/had some very good film directors like Godard, Renoir or Tati.

And ?
2017-06-21 14:42
Thats like saying the Lithuanian scene is better than the Danish scene because the Lithuanian scene has little to no exposure. The reason it has no exposure is because its not as good and hasn't done much to show that it deserves attention.
2017-06-19 07:47
The reason it has less exposure is probably because of the language barrier
2017-06-19 11:45
That's fair, however if it's good enough it will get noticed - take NiKo as an example of that.
2017-06-20 03:27
Americans believe that a book/film/etc, that do not sell well can't be a good book/film. That truly makes no sense. Popularity isn't the reflect of quality. And Europe is thinking a little bit more like this everyday, what a shame.
2017-06-21 14:34
A majority of the time popularity reflects quality however that's not always true. You can't tell me that high quality things don't get noticed more than low quality things though (unless they're getting noticed for being bad).
2017-06-22 03:06
Not at all. The fact that something is popular probably means the opposite actually : nothing interesting that everybody can enjoy. Just look at music or cinema over the last years, do you really think the popular artists/movies are synonyms of quality ? For a big part of them : not even close. Music and cinema are also business, what's the way to make money : an artist that makes mainstream music or someone exploring and trying stuff ? The first one obviously, but is he really the "best" one of the two ? Probably not. I could name dozens of albums or artists not very popular (or not enough) that are better than 95% of mainstream shit from 60's to nowadays. As said one of the greatest composer, Schoenberg : "if it is art, it is not for all, and if it is for all, it is not art."
2017-06-22 15:05
That's all subjective and really has no merit. Just because you think something that is underground is better than what's mainstream doesn't mean anything and vice versa.
2017-06-23 02:31
It has nothing to do with subjectivity. Music and cinema are art, but people seems to forget it. And in art, process and approach are as much important as the result. Mainstream and commercial music/movies, etc have no approach, it was created to make money, in a way it just takes listeners and viewers as whores and nothing more. But don't get me wrong : being an underground artist doesn't mean you're making good stuff. But maybe in your opinion superheroes movies and big productions are the greatest things that ever happened to cinema and trap music, boys band, etc, the greatest things that happened to music.
2017-06-23 13:54
Exactly those last few lines "in my opinion" those things could be the best things that happened to music. And you could think some unknown write produced the best play every made, but it's all subjective there's no actual "best" writer or artist (whether it be art or music) because it's never going to be unanimous.
2017-06-24 02:47
i love french cinema, but the UK does come out on top. i don't think you should mix architecture, scenery and culture heritage; although i do think that france would win in all three. however, another thing you should've mentioned is average personality of the individual (i.e. how people behave on average), a category which french people lose (not by a lot, english people can be bad, but the french are worse).
2017-06-19 15:19
What do you have in mind ? I mean, what makes french people worse than english people ?
2017-06-21 14:56
my mothers a Parisian and i grew up in London. admittedly those are the two cities which view themselves (in my opinion rightly, although there are other significant cities in France, but for the sake of my comparison i shall avoid too much complication) as the best cities in those countries. I frequently, both with family, friends and by myself travel between the two. And if i was to generalise the people as much as possible, the english would be aloof and mocking (mocking but in a friendly manner), along with the fact that they won't speak much (with regards to foreigners and tourists in London attempting to ask for help etc. However the Parisians are low-key (not very often low key) racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic. my mother is kinda all three of them though she doesn't really realise/admit, this is because she grew up a poor white catholic person in paris along with the fact that France has a fairly strong xenophobic culture (which is emphasised in Paris). Admittedly this is also because French people are much more upfront in their behaviour which could make it come across as unfriendly. In all honesty, the oldest european countries e.g. France, Italy, England, Greece and Spain have strong undertones of racist/homophobic/xenophobic/anti-semitic behaviour in their culture, its just that imo the french are more obvious about it than the english.
2017-06-21 19:30
Paris racist, homophobic, anti-semitic, xenophobic ? Really ? While macron made a super huge score ? This makes no sense. I've never been in England, but I've been many times in France because my father is french. I and my family kinda think the opposite : France is full of douchbag ashamed of their history or culture. They are typical puppets of oligarchs, they are exactly going where those few people want them to go. They don't even know what racism is, they are stupid enough to think that being against immigration is racism. They're destroying their own culture and some of them even think that France has no identity or culture. I hope they will realize it and recover.

I mean who considers (except for Portuguese speakers) Portuguese literature to be of any significance? What is wrong with being Czech? Czech art > Portuguese anyways.
2017-06-18 01:33
Many people. Do you know Fernando Pessoa(Regarded as one of the greatest poets of the 20th Century)? José Saramago won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1998. Eça de Queirós, has often been ranked with Charles Dickens and Leo Tolstoy. Luís Vaz de Camões his mastery of verse has been compared to that of Shakespeare, Vondel, Homer, Virgil, and Dante. He is remembered for his epic work Os Lusíadas (The Lusiads).

difference between french literature and english literature is everybody all over the world picks up english books whereas french books have to be translated for anybody to give a fuck about them
2017-06-18 00:32
nop... totally wrong... let me try to explain. What makes the "power" of a book? s1mple answer: how it influenced people. And French books have had a huge influence over litterature all over the world (Enlightenment for example). Who cares how many people read the girl on the train, it's absolute trash compared to anything Moliere wrote. However I'm pretty sure more people read The Girl On The Train than Moliere's books.

Why? Because I think Austin is crap and Rowling is no serious literature? Yea I liked Harry Potter when I was 9 but that is about it, no literary value whatsoever. You are most likely a monolingual imbecile anyways so you can't judge shit while I read both Dostoevsky and Dickens in original.

You are in no way obliged to believe this, and i do not expect you to either, but i am currently finishing my first year of university studying English literature, so yes, I have read some of fyodor Dostoevsky's work (demons and the idiot) and lots of dickens too. it's not a simple matter of opinion, i am talking in terms of commercial success and impact on literature to come, not some random Czech's opinion on HLTV lol. people like Shakespeare, austin, Agatha christie, JRR tolkien and cs lewis will be remembered and studied for hundreds of years most likley.
2017-06-18 01:24
Good job @ studying the most worthless degree out there monolingual. Hope you are paying the 9k pound tuition as well. When it comes down to commercial success you are right but that has to do more with the British dominance. You basically conquered and enslaved the world, won all the World Wars so no wonder the whole World is buying Harry Potter books. It does not mean it is objectively great.

2017-06-18 01:32
Why do you think we are obliged to use English even here on HLTV? You conquered the planet basically, we all live in a British dominated World and your culture is being showcased as the culture to admire in pretty much every country. We both know that if Harry Potter was written by a Czech nobody would read it.

I dont believe that for 1 second. I believe that it would become popular slower, due to the fact that most people do not speak czech. But once it got translated to english, if it really was as good as harry potter, it would be as popular.
2017-06-18 01:39

show me which french writers were more influential then dickens, Shakespeare and JRR tolkein. if you went up to some random person in the street and asked them who Racine was, they would have no clue, but if you ask someone who dickens, or shakespere was, people would know instantly. that is influence.
2017-06-19 17:02
If you ask someone on the streets who Justin Bieber is they will all tell you, doesn't mean he's a good singer. If you ask anyone with cultural knowledge who Victor Hugo, Molière, Jules Vernes, Jean de la Fontaine and Sartre are they will know

He is right and that's probably why French are taken for arrogant ***** The Normands were never French they came from North and the French king signed a deal with them. He gave them Normandy in exchange for peace because at first they wanted to bring in the war which would be devastating for France due to economic issues so better spread some land rather then war. The Normand then agreed to fight under the French king. You remind me of that S4WAY guy he is the same braindead as you and perhaps you are getting some fake education in France.
2017-06-18 00:41
what you say is vaguely true but you don't understand feodalism (i'll explain why if you respond without being too retarded) And again he is wrong because ""Dieu et mon droit" was a motto adopted because of a monarch having the ambition of conquering France." is bullshit but nice invention. It's just that the english nobility spoke some kind of french after the 1066 conquest so obviously they chose a motto in their language. Second bullshit: "Normans were Norse vikings who conquered both France and England btw." Normans are the descendants of the vikings that were given Normandy. So they didn't conquer France and when they conquered England they were not vikings anymore. So we are arogant when we point out that you're talking about something you don't master? Next time i'll say made up things and I expect you to not be arrogant when proving me wrong. About bias education I think only Russia beats you so calm down and check your facts even uk sources say you are wrong.

the continental blockade was Napoleon's plan for all of Europe. That means all of Europe was on France's side in not trading with Britain. During the same time as this blockade France was allies with most of Europe so if anything it was Britain and Portugal vs France and the rest of Europe.

lol plz ken loach, powell & pressburger, charlie chaplin, kubrick and david lean are far ahead of those, but it's not enough. french auteurs taught the world to direct. godard, traffaut, bresson, demy, renoir, rohmer (these guys are more influential than the whole of british cinema), luc besson, xavier dolan, abdellatif kechiche, gaspar noe, etc every year france makes films of artistic significance, not just casual entertainment. if i watch a film i want to be moved. that's not some gay af superhero films, or psycho.

Look at Olympics in 2016 idiot. GB: 27 Gold FRA: 10 Gold. France have awful rugby team as well, easily beaten by England. France really only have a better football and basketball team than England, as well as the fact that Basketball has only just started to grow in GB.

lolololol. england is nowhere near france. take a look at the national teams, france could field 4 or 5 teams and the 3rd one, if not even the 4th one, could beat england easily. england lost in the fucking round of sixteen in the euros.

for WW1 true France wouldn't have stand a chance against Germany alone , we're way smaller but as of ww2 they cowardly surrendered us on Dunkirk , french soldiers sacrified themselves to allow them a easy retreat , and Europe was saved by USSR ^^
2017-06-17 20:28
With battle of britain, dday, northern africa, atlantic warfare, the uk was easily the most valuable nation right after ussr when it comes to beat germany lol. france on the other side.. lel

What were we supposed to do when we were defeated and occupied by the ennemy? Germany had total control of our country , we couldn't do shit. We were not able to built any kind of war weapons , first because Petain (leader of France) didnt want to fight Germany , and second because Germany would have know and got mad. I remember watching a documentary of june 1940, when German pilots were shooting on the population to pressure to the government to end the war. Even with such problems , we managed to be relevant a bit in africa thanks to De Gaule , El Alamein battle is a good example of that (hitler said himself french were the best soldiers right after germans's one) There is also a reason if we were considered as winner at the end of ww2 don't you think? Plus french resistance had the biggest network in Europe , and was fighting hard against gestapo , ss ect.

Lol btw i'm half french / half american , and the funniest fact is that both my grandparents triumphed at the end of ww2 whereas your german ancestors shut their fucking mouth and were dominated by USA and USSR for more than 45 years , so you should really shut the fuck up bro , i mean if i were u thats what I would do , when I dare to talk shit to a country while mine had literally started a war for no reason just for desire of revenge but as always lost because they can only win battle but never strong enough to win wars

I brought too many arguments that you can't answer properly :)))) have a good day abdul
2017-06-17 23:19
no youre just bringing whiny excuses which dont change the dry fact that france got rekt in 1940 wouldve got rekt in 1916-18 without allies, just as they got rekt in 1871 ;) The best thing: There is no other nation so arrogant and butthurt, so i can be sure that you`ll be triggered more and more haha. ez snack. your Arguments: "dominated by USA and USSR" "started a war for no reason". True true, but thats not even what were talking about m8 - its france vs germany, and since germany was founded theyve always dominated france^^ but not even wondering, look at your average men haha, average biceps 25 haha, and your language, sounds gay af. rekt. "
2017-06-17 23:29
"rekt" LOL your life is so shit that u're the creator of all the threads bashing france , shows how triggered you are. France had 40m inhabitants whereas germany had 70 in 1940 , in 1v1 it makes the difference for sure ,we never know what could have happened , but as everyone hates germany because they were on our side , like saying if france and uk had rushed instead of waiting in 1940 maybe it could have go another way but we can make a new world with "if we , if this happened ect" What we all know now is that Germany is hated by everyone on the eastern european for the crime they've comitted , germany is now weak in term of army and would get wrapped in a minute by france. Your guys are getting invaded by refugees lol , germany with niggas i'm dying you guys never had any colonial empire LOL and full of niggas and arabs now wp , those guys are just stealing ur money
2017-06-17 23:36
haha you are saying im the triggered one here? still whiny excuse which dont change any fact of german domination over your cucknation during the last 150 years lel. coming with muslims now dont change facts either - you had obv the bigger terrorist problem the last years just saying haha. and since germany is economiwise much much more powerful compared to your peasant state, it would be still ez germany in a 1v1 since nukes wouldnt make sense as direct neighbours + your men still being weak and gay af. ez rekt.
2017-06-17 23:40
"ez rekt" the only one who is getting rekt was your grandmother when Vladimir Iiodipovich raped her on his way to Berlin in 1945 LOL ahahah , fucking cuck!!!!!! We don't give a fuck , as soon as your nazis try to attack us Germany is gone , this ugly merkel wont do shit , fucking whore lol.. how do u dare to say cuck when u were cuked for 45 years lmaoo!! you guys are coward wtf why didnt try to chase the usa or ussr u pussy cunt , at least france had resistance idiot but your guys were too pussy/coward to do it , your army is the shittiest of europe nowadays , u dont even have one as ur restricted like Japan lmao , see you Johannes go kill jew germany can only kill innocents and are war looser for ever , the most famous german guy in history is Hitler , fucking HITLER lol

tu te trompes pour la première guerre mondiale, l'apport de la France dans cette guerre et tellement supérieur à celui de n'importe lequel de nos allié que dire qu'on aurait eu aucune chance sans eux n'a pas de sens.
2017-06-17 22:16
oui mais en 1v1 on se serait fait rekt par les bosch je pense , ils étaient bien trop nombreux par rapport à nous , rien que le fait déjà de se battre contre la France , la grande-bretagne d'un côté et contre la Russie de l'autre et arriver a battre la Russie ça montre que les allemands étaient bien trop fort.. Ceci dit c'est la France qui à payer le prix fort durant la 1ere GM
2017-06-17 22:21
je suis pas tout à fait d'accord, la France a quasiment stoppée l'avancé allemande seule, ensuite le front ce stabilise et là l'avantage numérique ne sert plus à partir du moment ou tu peux couvrir tout le front. Par contre, comme ce qui c'est passé, on aurait jamais pu partir à la reconquête. Sur le front de l'est déjà l'Allemagne n'a pas battu la Russie, la Russie a arrêté le combat à cause de la révolution (même si la guerre était terrible pour eux) et surtout elle ne se battait pas seule! A mon avis ça aurait été très compliqué mais pas impossible.

pendant la première guerre mondial la France avait le commandement de tout les armée allié, certes les anglais ont énormément participé mais quand tu regarde la bataille de Verdun par exemple( la plus grande boucherie de tout les temps) c’était un 1vs1 contre les allemand et on les à stoppé, la France était puissante il faut pas nous sous estimé mais je suis d'accord que sans les anglais ça aurait été bien plus compliqué, quand tu voit la bataille de la somme elle n'aurait certainement pas pu être gagné sans eux. il va falloir que je m’intéresse un peut plus a ces 2 batailles parce que je remarque que je connais pas grand chose au finale alors que ma famille a combattu sur ces terrain là
2017-06-18 00:06
without the UK France would not have invested money into the USA while they were fighting for freedom, France would have conquered NA, would have become rich and would have had a big and powerful army and would have kicked the arse of the germans

Newton had to steal his discovery of calculus from Leibniz, he was a giant fraud.
2017-06-18 01:12
It's quite possible, despite the dispute and their claims to the contrary (each), that they both independently came upon their (read) developments in calculus, which, at the end of the day, Descartes' work merging algebra and geometry made possible.

How does France win in philosophy? Hume > Moralists
2017-06-18 00:10
Sartre, Voltaire, Descartes, Montesquieu, Camus, Diderot. Some of these people founded democracy and human's right.
2017-06-19 00:19
Not sure you know it, but the concept of democracy is a little older than the Enlightenment, thousands of years, to be precise. And I don't see how producing democratic structures is deeply philosophical. Hume's philosophy is just superior. His doctrine can't be falsified.
2017-06-19 00:26
Ancient Greece was not a democracy but an oligarchy. They were the first to say that the three powers should not be given to one man
2017-06-19 14:28
How is modern, western democracy not an oligarchy? Human society will always be oligarchical, it is the way of life. Please don't come up with "everybody is allowed to vote". No, not everybody, just those that are considered eligible by the law.
2017-06-19 14:45
You serious ? An oligarchie is just a group of people having all the power while in a democracy the three powers: legislature, executive and judiciary are separated
2017-06-19 16:38
Interesting, I didn't know that the separation of powers was reserved for democracies, guess you never stop learning... Of course western society is an oligarchy, but it is even more ridiculous than Roman or Greek democracy. There at least people with wealth and influence were ruling, but today, some random retarded failed lawyers and politology students rule while being told what to do by the wealthy and influential (=oligarchy).
2017-06-19 20:04
Perhaps the most imminent of those you mentioned; Voltaire absolutely disposed France. Spent most of his life in England & Netherlands berating France and saying how England was far superior. Stupid thread btw, but just had to reply to you when I saw this!
2017-06-19 11:48
Voltaire was forced to leave Paris and France because of what he said about democracy, freedom and the king at the time.
2017-06-19 14:30
To be fair, those democracies were typically oligarchical. But you are quite right, otherwise. (Not to even mention Rousseau's own opinion of democracy: "Were there a people of gods, their government would be democratic. So perfect a government is not for men." Not exactly high praise.) Don't even get me started on Voltaire's trivial dismissal of Leibniz' theodicy. I'm with you, when it comes to Hume, though. A superior philosopher, indeed -- my favourite, in fact. But let's not just limit ourselves to Hume! Locke is easily one of the most consequential modern philosophers, merely in terms of his staggering impact on modern America, in view of the political and economic powerhouse that it has become in recent years; moreover, I don't think the importance of Russell can be understated either, not least for his utterly fantastic primer, 'A History of Western Philosophy', or his and Alfred North Whitehead's monumental three volume treatise, 'Principia Mathematica', which, although flawed, paved the way for one of the 21st century's most crucial developments in the field of logic (I'm referring, of course, to Gödel's incompleteness theorems). I don't know whether or not we're counting Wittgenstein among British philosophers; that notwithstanding, Russell, again, played a major factor in his development -- so points either way, I say. I think something negative ought to be said for Anglican philosophy's generally phobic treatment of continental philosophy, though. Just probably not here. Waste of breath, I imagine, and quite beside the point. Feel free to chime back in.

History : France (it'd be UK if you count their colonial empire too, but just the country itself France wins) Music : UK Painting/Sculpture : France Scenery, architecture, cultural heritage : France Literature (includes philosophy) : France Cinema : UK Theatre : UK Sports : UK Language : France More accurate list. There are smart people and retards in both countries so you can't really say which is more intelligent. The general level of education is probably better in the UK though, although education rarely translates into personal intelligence.
