I loved the original (I bought the DVD); never saw the remake, though.

I watched Elvira Madigan (Swedish). One of the most visually beautiful movies I've ever seen.

Death Note - about a boy who had a book where if he wrote the name of a person, that person will die in the next few minutes.. he can optionally supplement with a statement about the cause of death (i.e. car crash); otherwise the person dies of a heart attack.

"A Better Life" if that counts? Half of the movie was in Spanish. But anyway, it was about a guy who lives in LA and tries to give his son a better life and get him out of the gang filled streets of LA.

IMDb - Ballerina (1937)

Beautiful, beautiful movie about the Paris ballet - it was actually the first full-length movie set in that world. It's of course in B&W, and there's so much dancing - even if you don't think you like ballet, you might learn to love it by the end of the film. The plot is kind of silly - but that was the way with so many films in that time period - and the film is still outstanding, overall.

It wasn't the last non-English movie I saw, but City of God is fantastic. I think the last one I saw was Volver, thanks to the wife. It was boring, but Penelope Cruz is hot.

See City of God if you haven't already.

I watched "Terribly Happy" (Terribly Happy (2008) - IMDb) on streaming Netflix the other night. It's a Danish movie with a Coen Brothers vibe.

My wife is always watching foreign films and most of them bore me to death, but I watched one with her the other night that really blew me away. Initially, the only reason I decided to check it out was because it featured one of my favorite foreign actors, Jean Reno. But now I'm glad I watched it since it ended-up being one of the creepier movies I've ever seen.
It was a French horror flick called "The Crimson Rivers." It's pretty freakin' scary, and very well crafted. It will remind some viewers of "Silence of the Lambs."
I recommend it to anyone who digs either horror movies or French cinema.
