Our Own "Foreign Movie Awards" LOL

Recommended Posts

I just realized that there are many wonderful movies form all of our countries, that other members may have not heard off. I thought of making a poll to "best foreign movie", but I only know the ones of my country!

So what about if each of us posts two of his/her favorite movies from their own country and then I'll make the poll?

Only 2...that is hard.

I have to do 3:

- Once were warriors

- Piano

- Vigil

These are my NZ picks. Vanessa, Fiona and Damnit are likely to disagree though....

LOL: It sure is hard choosing only two. let's make it three then!

My picks are:

1.- Amores Perros (Dog Loves, though "Love is a bitch" is much more accurate

2.- EL Callejón de los Milagros (The Alley of the Miracles. Original book novel by Naguib Mafouz)

3.- Como Agua para Chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate. Original book novel by Laura Esquivel)

I thought Once Were Warriors was great, although I didn't like the Piano & I was forced to watch Vigil on a school trip many years ago and then write an essay about the imagery blah blah, so I hate this movie even though it's probably very good!

Hey Frances, do you remember a movie called "Mr Wrong"? It's from years ago & at the time I thought it was really good.

And I want to vote for No Man's Land although it's not from NZ, it's Bosnian. My dad's Croatian, so that counts, right?

Yes, I have seen Mr Wrong - by Gaylene Preston in the mid 80's. Has some very freaky moments in it.

hey kiwis,

Once Were Warriors and Piano- both excellent, although both a little disturbing too.

I'd add Whale Rider as well. Have you seen this? I swore I wouldn't cry before the movie started (knowing it was meant to be a sob-fest), but I failed miserably. Great flic.

Not a great movie, but somewhat of a classic: Scarfies

:wink:
