Can't believe neither of you mentioned the Spanish film [REC], one of the best horror films of the last few years

Re: non english movies

Man, how about Les Invasion Barbares!

Starts out as the history of a man who choses to end his life himself, beeing terminally ill. By heroin. Seems heavy at first but...

It ends up being a big conversation about the intelligencia of the 70's and 80's and the social evolutions of the time. It gets pretty tasteful as they start to speak about the sexual liberation...

Quebecois cinema can be really awesome at times.

P.S.: Oh, you named 5150 Rue des Ormes! Adapted from a Patrick Senecal novel, who got to be the best french canadian horror writer...

But the critics of the movie were not that good.

I just saw The White Ribbon last night, which was pretty great. Another film by Haneke, Funny Games, is also a must-see.

My god I saw the american remake of that one...

Was pretty cool, but I NEED to see the original.

Night Watch (Russian)
Best fucking vampire/monster/god-vs.-devil movie ever.

Great script and actors, original and can easely rival with the "wow" factor of a hollywood big budget movie.



And the exellent follow-up....Day Watch.

Oh..Oh..Oh...
One truly fucked-up Québécois movie...

It's a "fake documentory" style...
