No reason. I'm obviously bored and thought I should make a thread for those people who interested in foreign language films


Inspiration is for amateurs

"De Zaak Alzheimer", Belgian thriller, big succes overhere, but also received pretty well in other parts of the world (There will be a Hollywood remake).

"Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain", French. A very famous and more important a great romantic movie, maybe you've already heard of it (or seen it).

All the movies of Almodovar (Spanish), but especially "Hable con Ella" and "Todo Sobre Mi Madre".

I really recommend the batch of Japanese horror moives, which have been remade in America recently...the likes of Ringu, Dark Water, The Grudge, are all superior in their orignial Japanese versions. There are one or two brilliant Korean horror movies out there too...'a tale of two sisters' for instance...

<----Outside of horror a huge recommdation too for ultra-violent Japanese movie "Battle Royale"...which is just astonishingly good. The little pic to the left is from that movie...

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!

Oh, I guess Cidade de Deus (City of God) and Amores perros are 'foreign' too. Fantastic movies

Festen (Danish) is a classic too

And most Swedish are super

Also, Russian Ark. A must if you're in Russian history, if not you might find it a bit boring.
