    Since the DVD age started (thanks Netflix!), I've been able to see many foreign films that never would have come to my rinky-dink town.   I love foreign movies, especially the French New Wave movies of Jean-Luc Godard (Breathless, Band of Outsiders, etc.), the bizarre german , jazzy horror films of Jess Franco (Vampyros Lesbos, She Killed in Ecstacy) and Kurosawa's films.  And don't even get me started on Bergman and Truffaut!
        What are your favorite foreign films (new or old)?  Maybe you'll point me in the direction of something amazing!

      I love Spanish and French films, they are great.  Not so long ago I wrote a hub about my favourite Spanish films with English subtitles.  They are all black comedies, full of drama, tragedy and lots of laughs. 

      There are many other films that I like specially French but they do not have subtitles sad
