Can you list 10 foreign films that you would recommend?

They are more relatable than the mainstream hollywood garbage these days.


I've seen Spirited was beautiful.

    Indeed I can :) I'll tell you my favourites -

    Battle Royale - mad Japanese movie about a class of kids who have to kill each other on an island

    Run Lola Run - German movie about a girl on a mission, told from 3 different story perspectives

    Pan's Labyrinth - lovely, beautiful, scary and great Spanish movie (must see)

    The Orphanage - another Spanish movie, VERY creepy and atmospheric, ghost movie

    Spirited Away - Japanese cartoon movie, the best from Studio Ghibli so far, magical movie!

    The Host - Korean monster movie, giant mutated river monster starts attacking people

    Hansel & Gretel - another Korean movie, based on the fairytale but very, very weird and strange!

    Let the Right One In - Swedish movie, well you should know, young vampire love, very gory in places

    REC - Spanish zombie movie, which is extremely nerve-wracking and fast paced

    Audition - Japanese horror movie which is probably pretty famous for one scene in particular! (gory)

    The Devil's Backbone - Spanish movie, ghost story and set around the Spanish civil war

    I think that's eleven....lucky you!

    EDIT: If you enjoyed Spirited Away, then check out the other movies from Studio Ghibli, I think there's been about eighteen made and although Spirited Away is the most famous, they're all lovely and beautiful movies. I personally love The Cat Returns and the latest release Ponyo!
