I know these are sposed to be foreign films and all but I just saw this really amazing American indie film done by the Polish Brothers (their name is Polish...so for the purpose of introducing this wonderful film to the thread I will classify it as foreign...plus if you're not in America it's foreign....) Anyway film's called Northfork and it is absolutely gorgeous! I nearly crashed the car I was sobbing so much as I was driving home...it just kept running through my mind over and over. I love it when you leave the theater with a film that you have only just begun to understand....This really is a wonderful movie!

Dirk Diggler: Jack, I was thinking about my name, y'know?

Jack Horner: Yeah?

Dirk Diggler: I was wondering if you had any ideas.

Jack Horner: I've got a few, but you tell me

Dirk Diggler: Well, my idea was, y'know, I want a name I want it so it can cut glass, y'know, razor sharp.

Jack Horner: Tell me.

Dirk Diggler: When I close my eyes, I see this thing, a sign, I see this name in bright blue neon lights with a purple outline. And this name is so bright and so sharp that the sign -- it just blows up because the name is so powerful... It says, "Dirk Diggler."

Have you seen "Far away so close" I think is a German/French production or something like that. I also liked "Malena" with Monica Belucci(is that the correct spelling? :/ ).

There are better films than "Y tú mamá también", such as "La otra conquista".


There is a movie from India "The Ceremony" it's great!
