No sword fighting or giant robots or magic crap. Just a twisted story that would kill a movie fx co. Like life of pi did.

Once were Warriors. 1994 Imdb 7.9 New Zealand. The story of a Maori native family in New Zealand afflicted with poverty, alcoholism and domestic violence. My buddy had to stop watching this movie. Warning: Brutal beat down scene...

Thanks for all of your replies! The leaves are turning color here and I'm ready to hunker down and watch some movies. I highly recommend:

Fireworks (Hana-Bi) 1997 Imdb 7.8 Japan.

A Japanese masterpiece

Kitano's Hana-bi is something quite special, a film where images of violence and beauty are juxtaposed. The violence is deadly, but certainly not gratuitous or pointless. The beauty is the love story, the happiness between a cop and his wife.

Don't forget all the great and bizarre Takeshi Miike films. If you're not into the gore and horror, check out Visitor Q and the Happiness of the Katikuris.

Black Orpheus

Umbrellas of Cherbourg

Pather Panchali

Wages of Fear

Spirit of the Beehive

Walkabout

I like movies that induce an atmosphere and emotion that later I come to identify with that movie... almost ineffably and beyond the story itself. Sound and vision and Proustian. (edited)

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

Thanks for the recommendations! Spirit of the Beehive looks very interesting....Cheers.

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

there is a film called "taxedermia" it is on youtube. i want you, this movie is quite fucked up, and definitely not for children. if you however, like myself, enjoy watching "fucked up shit," from time to time, check this mother fucker out. it is FUCKING FUCKED UPPER THAN FUCK!

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

Ted Grant /

Thanks. Hard to believe it could be more fucked up than Sweet movie but I'm all in!!!

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

If you have 40 minutes to kill for some all out stupidity, check out "Italian spiderman."

It's not even foreign. Indie dudes just made it look that way.

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

Just watched "Titane."

French film about a psycho chick who fucks a car and gets pregnant. (No, that's not a typo.)

I was really looking forward to seeing this after seeing the reviews and trailers.

As far as weird movies made just for the sake of weirdness, this one's up there.

I'm not sure if I liked it or hated it...

I liked it. Very bold and daring cinematic experience. Easily the most twisted movie I've seen this year. Was expecting a mechanical monster to be delivered after her sexual encounter with the Sedan De Ville. At the film's premiere there were several walk outs in the first 15 minutes. Don't take the kids!...LOL.

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

Ted Grant /

I forgot about this one. "Raw" Imdb 7.0 France/Belgium. A very shocking, surreal and visceral coming of age movie. Nothing like I experienced in college...Definitely not for the kids...

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

Ted Grant /

Something a little more family oriented. I saw " The Forgotten Battle" recently and really enjoyed it. One of the best and realistic WWII movies in a long time. My wife who was born in Holland really liked it. Her parents endured occupied Holland and her mother personally met Hitler and shook his hand. As a twelve year old her mother was told to put on her prettiest dress and join other girls to welcome a high priority "guest" in their town. Her mother recalled seeing a oddly dressed man in a hunting outfit with two large German Sheppards at this side. She shook his hand and presented flowers to him. Her father was 14 at that time and was put into forced labor as a warehouse laborer. Since the Germans were meticulous record keepers he received a small pension from them after emigrating to Canada in 1969.

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

If you're into Kung Fu movies, "Chocolate" is n awesome Thai movie about an autistic girl who can learn any fighting style just by watching it.

The fight scenes are brutal, an the outtakes at the end show people getting seriously fucked up.

And she fights this kid with tourettes:

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

Ted Grant /

Thanks! I found a free version of Chocolate in five parts. It has English subtitles...

Re: Favorite Foreign Films

I once was hitchhiking in France and this dude picked us up, and he was like "hey, lemme show you around the region!" and among other stops we went to the lil town from chocolat

it was a great time, I remember playing soccer in the main square with some little kids

cool world.
