Thanks, I dig horror, French and foreign movies in general. I will be sure to check it out!

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.
Edit: Just checked it on IMDB and looks like I have seen it. Yes it was a good one. Jean Reno and Vincent Cassel are in it, both of them among my favorite French actors.

Saw a French picture just the other night on cable, but can't remember what it was. Otherwise, it would be "4 luni, 3 saptamāni si 2 zile" (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), which is very very VERY good. Romanian, took place near the time I lived in Romania, so I've seen it several times.

Dead Snow - about nazi zombies. Different than any zombie movie I've seen - different 'rules' - but it was entertaining.

Maria Full of Grace. Movie about a Colombian girl that becomes a drug mule (swallows heroine) and travels to NYC to delivery the drugs for much needed money. She finds out by customs in the airport that she is pregnant. She ends up staying in NYC. Good movie.

-Cheers.

The Crimson Rivers - Trailer - YouTube

I actually watched this pretty recently, but it bugged me that the version on streaming Netflix was dubbed, not subtitled.
