I agree about Goodbye Lenin.   Some while ago I also saw Go Trabi Go, about a family from Bitterfeld who drove their tried and trusted Trabi to Rome, (I think).   I went through Bitterfeld a month ago, but by train rather than by car, and it looks a cleaner brighter place than it would have been 30 years ago

There's just something about Trabis, isn't there?  Although I think that they're surrounded by a great deal of Ostalgie, and I suspect that venturing out on a sleety February morning in a Trabi might not have been much fun ... smile

Re: Foreign Movies

I can recommend a movie Manila (about life of a usual family in Manila city). Quite hard drama, but very touching.

Re: Foreign Movies

Maybe it's very rough and a little bit vulgar at some moments. This is my favourite Dutch movie about 5 guys coming from a small village (about 5km from where I live).
I searched for the trailer with English subtitles.
The movie is called New Kids Turbo.

It was made after they did many short sketches before.

Re: Foreign Movies

Promoting New Kids, brilliant Paul! But seriously: it's funny with a high ammount of whats called in Dutch: onderbroekenlol (really don't know how to translate that)

I watched 'the invisible guest' (Contratiempo) yesterday, it's a really nice Spanish Crime Thriller.
Keeps you guessing what really happened till right at the end ..

Re: Foreign Movies

I'm a big horror movie fan. So I like to watch any horror movies by searching on the net. No matter from which country they are. I watch them using subtitles.
Here are some foreign movies that I enjoyed the most:
• Goodnight Mommy (Austria)
• The Orphanage (Spain)
• Pizza (India)
• Haunted (India)
• Ils (France)

Re: Foreign Movies

I suggest a movie called Circus Fantasticus. It's Slovenian film, but there's no talking, but still a very lovely film.

Re: Foreign Movies

Never been a fan of foreign films that require subtitles for me to read. I want a film that I can hear the lines AND enjoy seeing the "scenery of the scene" being shone all at the same time. My eyes like checking everything out all at once.

We have a weekly showing of a Middle Eastern film, usually in Arabic or Persian to try and give our students a bit of language practice and introduce something about the culture, but we also sometimes show films in Kurdish and Turkish too. Some of the popular ones we've shown have been:

Omar (Palestine)
Paradise Now (Palestine)
Lamma Shuftak (Palestine)
West Beirut (Lebanon)
Caramel (Lebanon)
Under The Bombs (Lebanon)
Theeb (Jordan)
A Separation (Iran)
Blackboards (Iran)
Ten (Iran)
Three Monkeys (Turkey)
Wadjda (Saudi Arabia)
Rachida (Algeria)
Harragas (Algeria)
Bab El-Oued City (Algeria)

One I saw recently but haven't yet shown is The First Movie (Iraq), about kids in a Kurdish village who are given cameras and sent off to make their own films about anything they liked.

Have you watched "Wedding in Galilee"?  It has Arabic, Turkish, and Hebrew dialogue.  Good movie too.  The latest Palestinian movie I watched was "Salt of This Sea".
