Hmmm.....you know, Europe invented film camera and cinema..Europe had first director first series, first comics,first historical movies..So is too hard to beat...When usa is just pure commerce..Europe is art...... See thats why hollywod was always stealing directors from europe and asia too..
I mean never heart about Fellini???...Antonioni??...Godard??...Bergman??... Bertolucci?? Truffaut.....Luis Buñuel..Bresson...Fritz Lange...Ejzenstein..Rosselini...De Sica...Chabrol... Forman.. Tarkovsky.Kieslowsky..can continue...
Even present Eu has names like Almodovar....Lars von Trier..Wim Wenders...
Wajda....Ozone..Kaurismaki..Tykwer..Polansky...Bekmambetov.. Kusturica..Benigni even Cristophen Nolan (Hmm new batman} is europe...
But dont crucified me..I am specializing in asian cinema..so directors as zhang yimou..Wong kar wai..Kim ki duk..Yasujiro Ozu are my most favourite.....
But dont compare asian and europan cinema...Beter comapare those two together against american cinema..Because most new hollywood movies are asian/europe remakes made by foreign directors....

See, the thing seperating the Asian films from the European films (or even American films) is that the Asian films have a limited source of actors to choose from. Their movies are limited to their general area in the world. What I'm trying to say is that is the Asian film industry wanted to make a movie set in Europe or America (or anywhere else in the world) they would need to find Caucasian actors who knew and spoke their language fluently (as though they grew up in their country). It's very difficult to do. They only have Asian actors to choose from usually.

European or American films have more to choose from in terms of actors. Especially American films because a lot of people speak English, and a lot of the time they don't need to be 100% fluent. They don't need to not have their authentic accent.

I like foreign films, though. It's just a shame that some film industries are limited due to the amount of actors they have to choose from.

It really depends on what kind of films you're talking about. If you're talking about horror and fantasy films, then I would definitely pick Asian films. They just get down and dirty, and show tons of detail when it comes to horror. I love it. And though sometimes the special effects gets kinda cheesy with the fantasy films, I do like how the film is directed and how they depicted some of the scenes. But, when it comes to other film genres, i.e. romance, action, whatever, I prefer European films.
