• La Vita e bella (Life is Beautiful) [Italian] El Laberinto del fauno (Pan's Labyrinth) [Spanish] Apocalypto [Mayan] (not sure if you consider this foreign because an American directed it) Those are few of my favorites. Hope it helps!
  • Au Revoir Les Enfants
  • The Lives of Others Amélie Angel A Attack the Gas Station Old Boy Initial D The Lives of Others is amazingly good. Amélie is a romantic comedy. The cinematography and art direction is probably the best I've ever seen in any movie Angel A is gorgeously shot and just a really crazy/awesome story. Attack the Gas Station is sort of a funny kung fu flick set in modern times. Old Boy is an awesome story, but has a really screwed up ending. It's kind of disturbing, I'm not going to lie. Initial D is if you're in to cars. It's got a pretty cool story line. It's based off of a video game.
  • The Twilight Samurai A Very Long Engagement
  • Tell No One (this french thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat) A Man Called Ove (Swedish film that will surprise and delight) Three Colors Trilogy ------Blue--------White-------Red----by Krzysztof KieĊ›lowski these each stand alone yet have some interconnections and spiritual meaningfulness. Jean de Florette(86) and Mannon of the Spring(87) Excellent Chocolat(2000) delightful
  • Children of Paradise; Diabolique (1955); Metropolis (1927); The 400 Blows; Madame Rosa; Small Change; Diva (very much like Hitchcock's work!); The Wild Child; The Last Metro; The Garden of the Finzi-Continis (1970); Shoeshine (1946); La Strada (one of my all-time favorites!); Two Women (1960); Beauty and the Beast (1946); My Afternoons with Margueritte; Vatel (2000); The Nights of Cabiria; Juliet of the Spirits /// For something shocking and very different but spectacular, you could try "Fellini's Satyricon". // I definitely agree with "Amelie"! Also, besides "Manon of the Spring", you also might consider "Jean de Florette" (1986).
