Mr. Saturn's rating:



My favorite non-English-language films.

I only included films I gave an 8.5+ rating. They're in my
Favorite Movies list.


The flags correspond to the language of the film, not the director.
Flags:
= French
= German
= Russian (I might have accidentally used this for Ukrainian language films)
= Japanese
= Italian
= Polish
= Swedish
= Czech or Slovak
= Persian (flag of Iran)
= Spanish (flag of Spain)
= Spanish (flag of Mexico)
= Korean (flag of South Korea)
= Indian (Bengali and Hindi and more)

Recommendations are welcome.

if you're still interested in updating this list, here are few Finnish recommendations:

The Year of the Hare (1977) by Risto Jarva
The Unknown Soldier (1985) by Rauni Mollberg
Shadows in Paradise (1986) by Aki Kaurismäki
Zombie and the Ghost Train (1991) Three Wise Men (2008) by Mika Kaurismäki
Steam of Life (2010) by Mika Hotakainen & Joonas Berghäll

I'm not sure if you can find them all with English subtitles though.

You would probably like Carl Theodor Dreyer's Ordet. Not quite as good as Passion, but still one of the best films ever made.
