I'll start by making a list of foreign films that I've seen....these are probably popular films that you've seen as well :-) Tell me what you think!

Amélie


Pan's Labyrinth


Slumdog Millionaire


The Motorcycle Diaries


Volver

(hmm...I didn't actually like this one....)

Paris, Je T'aime


Spirited Away


Princess Mononoke


Life Is Beautiful

This one...wow..this one is truly breath taking. I've never felt so moved...
"In this poignant tragicomedy, a clever Jewish Italian waiter named Guido is sent to a Nazi concentration camp during World War II, along with his wife (Nicoletta Braschi) and their young son (Giorgio Cantarini). Refusing to give up hope, Guido tries to protect his son's innocence by pretending that their imprisonment is an elaborate game, with the grand prize being a tank."
I STRONGLY recommend this one.
I give this one five stars, definitely my favorite.

Coco Before Chanel


Le Secret/A Secret


The Cat Returns


Howl's Moving Castle


Kiki's Delivery Service


Coleccion Pedro Infante: Nosotros Los Pobres


The Devil's Backbone

It's not a horror film...perse. "After Carlos, a 12-year-old whose father has died in the Spanish Civil War, arrives at an ominous boy's orphanage he discovers the school is haunted and has many dark secrets that he must uncover. " It's a great film.

The Orphanage


The Wild Child


La Vie en Rose


...Which ones have you guys seen?! Which ones are your favorites?

Amelie, France, 2001, Jean-Pierre Jeanet (director), Audrey Tautou (title character) is a cinematic, art house gem semi-autobio about a sad little girl who matures into a lonely young woman seeking true romance. The joy watching this film is sampling the lives of those in her world she interacts with directly or indirectly while searching for Mr. Right.
^ Highly recommend this show.

The Road Home, China, 2000, Zhang Yimou (director), Sun Honglei and Zhang Ziyi (main characters). Heartfelt, beautifully photographed, moving tome about unrequited love realized. The story begins with an urbanized son returning to his rural place of birth to finalize the burial of his recently deceased father, the local beloved school teacher. But when his elderly mother insists on traditional arrangements and Luo prepares for the burial, the story of his parents' lives unfold.
^ Realized when watching this show that as human beings all races, nationalities experience the same joys and losses. Only the language and certain customs are different. I also became very aware that you not need be heavily vested in materialism to be truly happy. Subtitled.

Have many others but will have to look them up and post later.
