Foreign Flicks

Couldn't find the previous topic on this so started a new one.  So sue me.

'Festen' is on Film 4 tonight, well early Sunday morning to be exact, well worth a watch.  A drama about family hostilities... plot probably been reused since.
Late Doors

Lol used to do reviews, cant ever remember a dedicated thread just individual ones like

Anyone finds a better subtitled film than Cinema Paradiso let me know.
Butts

In Order Of Disappearance (Norwegian) is terrific
Frazier Cranium

I don't know that one, Butts.

Soppy of me no doubt but I right enjoyed Amelie when it came out.  There's another Italian one, like Cinema Paradiso, black & white, The Postman (Il Postino?) which even though it's b&w (or the one I watched was anyway ) is pretty ace to look at.

Never seen Jules et Jim.  Jour Du Fete.  La Dolce Vita.  All seem to crop up when the pundits mention great old foreign films.

Amelie is a great film. Watched it for the God knows how many times now time just last week.


In Order Of Disappearance, will try track it down. Says bloodthirsty in a couple of reviews. Hmm.

Got Leviathan lined up on Netflix.

Lives Of Others I thought was excellent and also Intouchables. City Of God made me thank God I wasn't born in a place like that. Chilling.

Wages of Fear - 1953 b&w French film starring Yves Montand, the coolest man in the world at the time.

Yeah, good dat!

Flame & Citrus (I think that's right), WW2 film.  V good.

There's bloody beaucoups of great foreign flicks, I just can't remember half the names FFS.

I always enjoy Das Boot, I think it's good to see the war from a different perspective and to actually worry about the 'enemy'.

At a slight tangent, you may want to try and tack down "Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter" ("Our mothers, our fathers", aka "Generation War"), a German three part television series which tracked the lives of five young German friends during the rise of Nazi Germany and World War II.

It was utterly compelling.
Forest

Amelie
Mic Macs
A very long Engagement
Untouchables
The Counterfeiters
A Prophet
White Ribbon
Hidden
Crouching Tiger etc
Kung Fu Hustle

Mesrine
Tell No One
Let the Right One In


I'll think of some more later
Frazier Cranium

Seen only half of them, thanks for the list .

Help with the titles needed please - Nosferatu (the original) is fantastic in parts, a few horrifying images that beat anything even now.

Watched one last year, something like In The Darkness, about persecuted Polish Jews living underground in sewer system to evade the nazis.  Excellent.

M - Peter Lorre as a child killer.  

Delicatessen.

Anything with Jacques Tati in
Frazier Cranium

Baader Meinhoff one was good.  Also Carlos The Jackal.

And of course, the best foreign flick ever, Gregory's Girl.

Run Lola Run.

Bit confusing though as lots of flashbacks etc
Butts

Tampopo (Japanese) is also brilliant - about noodles
Frazier Cranium

Finished watching 'Free Men' a French film about Muslims & Jews in nazi occupied France in WW2.

Based on true events but not claiming to be a true story overall, very good and of course very depressing.

Jean De Florette and the sequel Manon Des Sources (yup, I had to look it up to remember the title) are both great films with Gerard Depardieu.  Well recommended, simple stories brilliantly told, and great scenery of course but they're much more than just pretty pix
Heyho

I endured Fifty Shades at the weekend. It was a decent Piratebay download but it had Chinese subtitles. At one stage this obscured the view of one of Ms Johnsons nipples.

best review ever.  
Frazier Cranium

Watched 'The Yellow River', a Korean film - a story of revenge and lots and lots and lots of blood and violence, possibly the most violent flick I've ever seen.  2.5 hours or so long too.

Pretty good, some of it implausible like but gruesome yet entertaining.
Grind

Sounds Amazon.
