What are your favourite foreign language films?

Mine are :-

La Dolce Vita - Love that image of the Christ statue at the beginning and the tales of a party loving journalist.

Fanny and Alexander - Moving tale of family life from Bergman.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - A superb tale from Ang Lee.

Ran - Kurosawa at his best. His take on King Lear is superb.

Three Colours Red - It is the best of the trilogy. I think the idea of listening in on someone is interestingly explored in this film.
Ran would have been one of mine - the other being another Kurosawa film - Kagamusha (Shadow Warrior)
