Not sure if this has been done before and am far too lazy to actually scroll down the screen and look for myself but on the off chance it has not been done before thought I would ask people for their favourite foreign language films (before some smart arse says Die Hard because it is American or some such) My top five to get the ball rolling off the top of my head are:

1 City of God
2 La Haine
3 Oldboy
4 The Seven Samurai
5 Mesrine (Part 1)

Not seen many.

The Secret In Their Eyes and Oldboy are the only two that I have really liked.

You've got to watch City of God Stella, is genuinely awesome. Brutal film but genuinely fascinating.

I wouldn't argue with your number one, Jeffrey. Stunningly good film. La Haine is also exceptional.

I watched Oldboy for the 3rd time about a month ago and still can't see what the fuss is. Not particularly interesting, well acted or well filmed in my opinion but I think that is more to do with me as everyone else seems to love it. I have given it three goes now so that is it.

I would replace La Haine with City of Life and Death (watch it if you haven't already, fantastic film and incredibly moving) and move LH to number 3. Never seen 4 & 5 so can't really comment on them.

I really liked The Orphanage and Pans Labyrinth (thanks to superfly for making me watch it) Both by Guillermo del Toro so they can be 4 & 5 for me.

Pans Labrinth is a good shout Tina totally forgot about that, not normally my cup of tea but really enjoyed it when I watched it. There are three films in the same trilogy as Oldboy, if you didn't enjoy oldboy you really would dislike the others but Sympathy for Mr Vengence is the best of the other two.

Haven't seen it for years but I was studying French at A level, part of which was classic French Cinema - we watch a 1950 film called Orphee (directed by Jean Cocteau), effectively a more modern interretation of Orpheus in the Underworld.

Even as a 17-year old I was absolutley captivated by it. Had an old VHS copy of it which sadly got wiped in about 1997. This thread has reminded me of it & I need to get it on DVD so I can watch it again.

City of God is great, as was La Haine and Pan's Labyrinth. Really enjoy The Baader Meinhof Complex, though I find the subject matter particularly interesting. Another guilty pleasure is Amelie. Watched that a few years ago but found it to be a really good watch despite my initial skepticism.

I Watched a Norwegian film called Trollhunter recently, wasn't too bad until you see the first troll. Looks like the BFG with three heads. An action film I found a decent watch was District 13. The plot is pretty basic, the dubbed version I seen it in was poor, but the action scenes were really well put together and filmed. Never going to win any Oscars but well worth the watch.

Agree with Tino on Oldboy, I had heard so much about it and after watching was left with a 'is that it' feeling. Another disappointment was Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Just couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

A friend recommended The Crimson Rivers starring Reno and Cassel recently, but that was garbage. The subject matter was interesting enough, but the ending is so obvious and poorly thought out. Avoid at all costs.

That's what the charm of Trollhunter was for me, they didn't go for overly-elborately scary monsters, the trolls were trolls from fairytales both in the way they looked and the superstitions about them.

Yeah, I can see where you're coming from. I watched it anticipating to dislike it due to the camcorder style of filming. That probably clouded my judgement on it, I detested Blair Witch and couldn't wait for Cloverfield to end. Maybe I'll watch it again.

Have you seen Headhunters? It's a Jo Nesbo novel turned into a film. I've heard it's decent so will try to give it a watch this weekend.

Cheers, Headunters on the lovefilm list now.

re Blair Witch & Cloverfield, thought they were both good films but the overactive-I'm-right-here-in-the-middle-of-the-action does get annoying, just a bit overdone as though they're catering for the least bright member of the audience.

City of God is my favourite, at the end when it shows the real interview footage you know how close the film was. A close second would be das experiment, a absolutely gripping thriller. It's was remade with forest Whittaker and adrien brody recently and although that version is horrific it doesn't tarnish the original.

Anyone watch "A Serbian Film"? Basically, p*rn masquerading as art and tries to be shocking for the sake of it.

"The Human Centipede" is another poor film...in fact, one might say it (Drum roll) has no legs!

Anyone watch "A Serbian Film"? Basically, p*rn masquerading as art and tries to be shocking for the sake of it.

"The Human Centipede" is another poor film...in fact, one might say it (Drum roll) has no legs!

Is that the one about the girl from the country who goes into the city, sleeps around... accidently murders some sicko client then gets protected by some bloke who has a childhood crush on her - whilst the mafia are chasing her for money?

I watched Record which was ok. District 13 was good too. Amazing fight scenes.

Life Is Beautiful

Contreversial to some (not me). A funny and moving film, which gives a different take on life in a concentration camp, from a man an his son's perspective.

Highly recommend this, and you may even have tear in your eye, if you're like me.
