Asian film wise...Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Shutter, I Saw The Devil, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Shaolin Soccer, The Chaser, Ringu, A Tale Of Two Sisters....there's plenty more I love too.

Amelie, Mic Macs, City Of Lost Children, Delicatessen, Priceless, High Tension, Martyrs...all amazing French movies.

Spanish Language flicks by Del Toro like Pan's Labyrinth and Devils Backbone are mesmerising and brilliant.

City Of God, Tsotsi and City Of Men are excellent also.

Run Lola Run is a brilliantly done movie, so fast and enthralling.

I could go on and on, these are all fairly recent releases too so very each to find and watch.

Volver - A Spanish movie about a family of women and all their secrets. (Spanish)


My favourite is Volver but felt the other films are worth a mention.
I loved volver too

Lore - By Cate Shortland
Really interesting drama and the actress playing Laura is brilliant

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh1LxA6_HSM#

I disagree with the Guardian on this one I thought it was very thought provoking

Goodbye Lenin
I'm always filled with guilt for publicly admitting I like La Cage aux Folles.

For me, it has to be anything by Kurosawa or Almodovar.
