And please no more Pan's Labyrinth, not because it's bad or good, 'cause I haven't watched so I don't know, but because there are too many recommendations for that movie already.
This isnt a recomendation thread.

It's a 'your last watched foreign film thread'. Right now Pan's Labyrinth is very popular as it was released recently that is why it is been mentioned so much...

Re: Last foreign language movie you saw, and your rating of it!

Well, I saw Breaking The Waves last Wednesday, but although the actors were speaking Scottish, it probably doesn't qualify as a foreign language.

Which means the last foreign language film I saw, was Lola Rennt on Monday. Not your typical German movie, but definitely worth watching. Franka Potente is of course great as always (eg. Der Krieger und die Kaiserin). Loved it.

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Lola Rennt is good.

call me lazy but I don't watch foreign films. If I wanted to read subtitles for 2 hours I'd read a book.

Maybe some people here can actually watch films in another language without needing subbies?

Pity, you'll never know what you're missing, I strongly believe that the best cinema right now in the world is made out of US. Right now the level of US cinema is a bit poor in comparison with the past

Honey, there's a thing called 'learning a foreign language' if you're not keen on subtitles. That'll make your foreign move experience fantastic, enriching and twice as fun, not to mention give you the opportunity to appreciate the talent of the original cast as it is, without the filter subtitles and dubbing bring about.

That's true That's exactly what I told my friends when they started to notice that I watched foreign language movies a lot lately

hon, Sally has no time to learn a foreign language. Heck, after 7 years of Latin in high school and college many years ago I don't even remember much of that

I remember most of the grammar. If you sit me down with a dictionary I could still translate stuff.

The Israeli Movie "Beaufort" is an excellent one.
It shows the helplessness of Israeli soldiers keeping a post which nobody needs.
