Video: Michael Moore on the French Social Security System

(B1), B2, C1, C2

In these two videos from Youtube , you will see an extract from Michael Moore's documentary "Sicko". In this film, he compares the healthcare system in the USA with other countries around the world. Here, he visits Paris to report on the French Social Security system.  Video times: 8 mins and 6 mins.


Task: Watch the two videos. If you want to try watching without the subtitles, cover the bottom of the screen with a post-it (but watching with French subtitles is also a good exercise in understanding pronunciation).

Michael Moore is often accused of painting a false or exaggerated picture in his films. Do you think this is true for these two extracts?
