Since KTSP to 2013 Curriculum, students are expected to be able to write in many genres of writing text, including narrative text. In fact, most of EFL students often faced some difficulties in writing English text because they think that they were not be able to select proper words, use correct grammars, generate ideas, and composing their thoughts and ideas in their writing. Therefore, this Classroom Action Research (CAR) aimed to investigate how using movie could improve English narrative writing. The subjects were 44 of IX grade students at one of the Junior High School in Bandung. The data were collected through observation sheets, students' worksheet and student' journal sheets. The result of the research shows that using movie could improve students' narrative writing skill. The mean for the first cycle is 66.70, while the last cycle is 81.30. In addition, based on students' journal, most of students (90%) were more motivated and confident in learning writingthrough movie because it was more enjoyable than conventional writing instruction. From the finding' analysis, it can be concluded that the use of movie in teaching writing could improve student' narrative writing performance.
