message 1: by Aynge (new)

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments Was it any good?

Mine was TimeCrimes, a time travel thriller made in Spain, I think. It was pretty good, even if I'm not sure I understood exactly what happened at the "end." I hear they're making an American version.

I have The Diving Bell and the Butterfly in the DVD player now, but haven't started it yet.

a film about two brothers who are soccer players in mexico

before that it was Wind Journeys about ignacio, a renowned accordion player in columbia. beautifully filmed

i get lots of foreign films from the library. my wife usually curls her nose up at them and yet likes them in the end

Leshawn | 109 comments "Home" with Isabelle Huppert in French.
It was disturbing and very good. It explored the definitions of home and sanity.
Ursula Meier directed it and she did a masterful job.

janine | 7715 comments most films i see are foreign language (not dutch), but for the purpose of this thread i'll post my last non-english spoken film.

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments Thumbs up or down?


message 7: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Thumbs up, but only if you can handle blood and Japanese weirdness.


message 8: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) Let It Rain and Skirt Day. both French and checked out from the library. I saw The Girl Who Played with Fire at a local arthouse. It was my favorite book of the series and the movie was excellent.

Phil | 11694 comments The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


message 10: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) The Secret in Their Eyes (El Secreto en sus Ojos), the 2010 Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language Film. A chilling, darkly comic, riveting thriller that will pull you into its' web, leave you mesmerized, and haunt you for days after.

You must see this film.

Sarah | 13815 comments Has anybody seen Micmacs? It''s by the director of The City of Lost Children and Amelie and Delicatessen with that same weird little French actor and I didn't even know it existed til I saw a preview for it on a DVD.

Since I like riveting and I like being haunted, I added this movie to my queue based on your recommendation. I think the last foreign movie I saw that I could describe as riveting was A Bittersweet Life (Dalkomhan insaeng).

Meels (amelia) I'm pretty sure it was Pan's Labryth, unless it was one of the Bergman films David had me watching, Smiles of a Summer Night was the most recent Berman, of that I'm sure.

Loved them both either way.


Lyzzibug ~Still Breathing~ (lyzzibug) | 708 comments I believe it was Life is Beautiful


message 15: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Ah, Principessa!


message 16: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Has anybody seen the Benigni movie Il Monstro? I think that one is absolutely hilarious.


message 17: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I have not. I'm interested, though.


message 19: by Aynge (new)

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments Pan's Labyrinth... that was a great flick. The scene with that pale man-thing... *shudder*


message 20: by Dan (new)

Dan (akagunslinger) I watched the Good, The Bad, and the Weird last night, a Korean semi-remake of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly set in China around WWII.

I'm watching The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. It is freaking my shit out.


message 24: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Tell me, should I keep watching? Or is this going to make me twitch all night?


message 25: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Ok, I'm trying. It is hard at times.

Yes! "Il mostro" is funny. If you like Benigni you should also try "Il piccolo diavolo" (The little devil), Walter Matthau co-stars.


message 28: by Christine (new)

Christine (christine01) Pan's Labyrinth, it was an excellent movie.


message 29: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Does Man on Wire count? It has a lot of subtitles.


message 30: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I don't think so, Sarah, but, my goodness, what a fantastic documentary! I love how Man on Wire felt like a combination thriller and heist flick. I've seen it several times.


message 31: by Aynge (new)

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments The Diving Bell & the Butterfly is next up on my cue. Now I'm having 2nd thoughts.

Félix (habitseven) It does?


message 35: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11694 comments Larry lost his "Sally-to-Larry" translation device.


message 36: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I thought it was Rhymes with Home on the Range.


message 37: by Jim (new)

Jim | 6485 comments Isn't that deranged, one thought it was strange and the other thought it was range, will it never change?


message 38: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11694 comments Raynge. Straynge. Deraynged.
