    I had the opportunity to watch a very nice Polish movie as my language course assignment: Sztuczki. I recommend it:

    I would really recommend this true story: Untouchable (french film, please google it)

    Great french film with what you might expect as heavy subject matter but its really funny and its a feel good film throughout. Got a few awards this year and last.

    I recently saw the Czech film Zelary, set in World War II, and would recommend it. It's a romantic movie in some ways, so it may not be up everybody's alley, but it's pretty gritty as well.

    One European movie I liked very much was The Unbearable Lightness of Being, which was made in the 1980s but was about the spiritual journey of a couple who were caught up in the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia and its aftermath. The ending was quite sad but very powerful.

    Some of you might want to give LaProie (The Prey) a try. It's available with English subtitles on Netflix for those in the U.S. or who have access to that company. It's a 2011 French action thriller that got mixed reviews. I certainly agree that it's not high art, but I thought it was enjoyable.

    The film triumphs in Spain
    A humorous review the corseted and bitter life of a small region that only looks to his navel.

    Title:


    8 Basque surnames

    Title in reference to the aberrations of the Basque nationalists who set 8 surnames would have someone to be considered pure Basque

    Attachment 6426

    Top Basque vasc bride and her father. Down with boyfriend Andalusian woman Extremadura settled in Euskadi.

    http://www.cinedor.es/estrenos/8-apellidos-vascos

    Rafa (Dani Rovira), Andalusian-blooded, has never had to leave his beloved Sevilla to get what matters most in life: fine, the hair gel and women. Then one day everything changes when the first woman to resist her charms appear: Amaia (Clara Lago), a Basque. Rafa, determined to win, travels to a village deep Euskadi. There, for Amaia will do whatever it takes, to impersonate Basque, with the help of a frontier (Carmen Machi).

    Spanish is the humorous film that is winning right now in Spain, I think it takes 2 million euros raised.

    It is full of clichés, and becomes a modernized sequel "landismo" the Spanish cinema of the 70s and 80s that has always triumphed in Spain for trying own issues in a humorous way.

    Landismo is the name of a certain genre and cinematic phenomenon Spanish , trying to combine the easy comedy with eroticism low intensity .


    The phenomenon known in the history of Spanish cinema with the aforementioned name refers to its most representative and outstanding performer , Alfredo Landa. This term encompasses a series of films that starred the actor during a period of his career , running from 1969 until 1978 , and in Spain of censorship were classified as S.


    This type of film belongs to the genre of comedy and , more specifically, of the sitcom and entanglement , royal heir of the magazine of the time . A classic example is not covet your neighbor 's fifth successful film directed by Tito Fernandez in 1970.


    These films reflected , comedic , problems , concerns and environments of the Spanish society in the last years of Franco and the first call of the Transition to democracy.


    Directors Mariano Ozores , Pedro Lazaga , Luis María Delgado and Fernando Merino were prolific at this stage, and actors like José Luis López Vázquez and José Sacristan were present in many of their deals .


    In a press conference in 2007, the Spanish Film Festival in Malaga, Alfredo Landa was " very proud " to have created the so-called landismo because " no one who has left something as important as a way of being, acting and view of life " , but in reality the true architects of the phenomenon were the writers of the films involved.

    I did try it, but I really don't like watching silent films, I'm afraid, and I found the highly stylized style and cinematography very off-putting and distancing as well.

    Your Swedish film recommendation, As It Is in Heaven, was much more up my alley. I guess I'm "very sentimental".

    This is what I said in the beginning as well, but eventually I liked it.

    "Barbara", a German film that explores life in totalitarian East Germany. It reminded me of The Lives of Others.

    This isn't properly speaking a film; it's a television series. I just finished it. The acting, the plot twists, and the suspense made it very enjoyable, and I'm usually not into these grand conspiracy kind of premises.

    I don't know why, but I never got around to seeing the film "Farinelli".
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farinelli_%28film%29

    I just watched it yesterday. I must say I disagree with some of the English language reviews of it. I very much enjoyed it.
