Simply the best list on this site ! Impressive !
Posted: 5 years, 11 months ago at Oct 20 21:37
Nice list! I'll check out those that I've haven't seen before next year.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Nov 27 12:53
Nice, but very biased towards italian and french cinema. And not a single film from Czech republic? what a shame.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Nov 27 16:28
You're right. Now, it's a little bit more varieted: I added five movies (and deleted five Italian/French/German ones) from Brazil (Cinema Novo), Czechoslovakia (Czechoslovak New Wave), Burkina Faso (African Cinema), Portugal and Hungary. The problem is that, IMHO, French/Italian/German/Japan/Soviet Union/Sweden films are of a higher quality level...
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jun 2 16:55
Great list! A few more I would add are... To Live (Huozhe) (1994) CHINA, The Ox (Oxen) (1991) SWEDEN and City of God (Cidade de Deus) (2002) BRAZIL. Unless they were on here and I missed them?
Posted: 4 years, 12 months ago at Sep 18 4:53
superb man!!! this list rocks! i will collect all those and will watch
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at Jan 31 1:47
A lot of good ones. My favourite German movie is Run Lola Run.
Posted: 4 years ago at Aug 24 0:25
i suggest france's Olivier Olivier and Thomas In Love


Posted: 4 years ago at Sep 15 2:38
For some light hearted fare, how about:
"Amelie" France 2001
"Crimen ferpecto" Spain 2004?

Big fan of Alex de la Iglesia, here. The list is great!
Posted: 4 years ago at Sep 15 15:30
Aguirre is my favourite on here, it truly is a masterpiece. A good, under rated Itallian film is 'I'm Not Scared'(2003) not sure if you have seen it or not. If you haven't then I recommend it.
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Dec 23 15:00
very impressive list...how about la strada?
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Aug 17 21:47

Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at May 4 15:58
