    Being in a Russian Film Study class this semester has really opened my eyes on Foreign Films. My favorites of the Semester have been

    Moscow Doesn't Believe In Tears
    Russian Ark (A movie with NO CUTS. Seriously they did a two hour movie without stopping the camera)
    The Italian
    The Barber of Siberia
    Ivan Vasilievich Changes His Occupation

    They are all actually fantastic movies and from Russia no less!

    So what are your favorite foreign films?

    The Motorcycle Diaries

    My cousin, who grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, had me watch this when she was teaching me Spanish - I learned a lot of this language and also got a lot out of the movie...Great movie.

    City of God - Might be my favorite movie of all-time, and certainly has my favorite protagonist of all-time in Knockout Ned.

    mostly Italian…Cinema Paradiso, Il Postino, Malena, 8 1/2, La Dolce Vita

    but also some bizarre Japanese/asian stuff like The Audition and Old Boy

    Others noted the mind bloCity of God and some of the Miyazaki animated films that I love too. Nausicaa is less well known here than it is in Japan, but probably my favorite Miyazaki.
