What are your favourite foreign language (or your mother tongue if it's not English) films? Or do you not enjoy films with subtitles?

I love the sound of languages other than my own and watch a fair few films from continental Europe. I especially enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth, Volver, Delicatessen and Tsotsi.

I also liked "M".

Those are really old movies. :p

As mentioned, Let The Right One In & Amelie are great.

I ******* loved Apocalypto - that's one of my favourites.
Also Battle Royale & The Wave (German fillm, check it out.)

I was thinking I hadn't seen many foreign language films but I like quite a few of the movies mentioned.

I also liked Betty Blue and Hero.

I really like My Beautiful Laundrette also.

A rather short Israeli film: Yossi and Jagger. And by the same director: Walk On Water.
