Think the only foreign films I've ever seen are Hero, KungFu Hustle and Triplets of Belleville.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Ummm... I'm assuming, by foreign films, that's meaning non-U.S. films... Right?? unsure.gif

I think anything outside of English language films are counted under "Foreign." Sure, that sounds really big-headed, but the truth is that English cinima has a strong enough grasp on the market to set a standard on these things.

Independant film maybe, but I don't think 'foreign' film is quite the term to use, I have seen many far eastern films but I'd just chat about those in the other film sections as many other people have faved them too.

Infernal Affairs - I liked the entire trilogy, but the first one is the best, I think.
Amelie
Daddy Long Legs - the Korean version
Il Mare
Swing Girls

There're a bunch of other Hong Kong-produced movies that I like, but I don't remember the English titles for them, so...I'll just leave it at that.

I like horror movies more than the average person, so those with an asterisk are scarier and/or gorier than the others on the list.

Like wise i have seen many and i have liked many. But as of the moment, i'm currently too lazy to list them. Perhaps i will in the near future...

...i've seen this one film in high school. We watched it in our film and litutrure class, when we did our 'unit' on human suffering. Its called La Vita è bella (life is beautiful). It in italian, we watched it in italian. And from what i heard you don't want to hear this thing in anything else but italian. But it was a very compeling movie. "An unforgettable fable that proves love, family and imagination conquer all." as IMDB quotes it. It deals with the holocaust so you know, nazi.

The ending is so... sad.gif

Oh...I watched Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman! (is it the Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano version or the old version?) Both are good!
