Foutaises (English title: Things I Like, Things I Hate) is a 1989 French short film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.


Dominique Pinon talks to the camera describing his likes and dislikes, ranging from the simple such as "I hate men with a beard but no moustache" to the more touching, "I like to think that after death can't be worse than before birth." Each of his examples is accompanied by a visual demonstration.

The actress Marie-Laure Dougnac (Pinon's collaborator in Delicatessen), also makes a cameo appearance. Jean-Pierre Jeunet reused this technique in his 2001 film Amélie when introducing the characters.
