Assuming that my obsession with movie lists has already given away the fact that I am originally American, these are some of my favorite non-American, non-English films.

These are all great titles! One you might be interested in is a very underrated Swedish movie called Oxen (1991) with Stellan Skarsgård.

I've seen Seen hable con ella and volver, and I pretty much despise Pedro Almodovar. Paris Je T'aime was cute, but not list worthy. Brutti, Sprochi e Cattivi falls into dislike category, but I'm definitely watching all of the rest. Thanks for the recs, Shaun and lopinho!

You got my vote with Amores Perros, but I also agree with quite a few of your choices!
