Here are a few Argentinian movies I really liked:
"El Secreto de sus ojos" (The secret in their eyes, it won the 2010 Academy Award for best Foreign movie)
And "Carancho" (term for "ambulance chaser", literally means "vulture")
Both star my favorite Argentinean actor, Ricardo Darín. He also starred in another acclaimed movie, "El Aura" (The Aura):
I am really starting to love South Korean cinema. Recently I have seen Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom (a.k.a. Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring) and Bin-jip (a.k.a. 3-Iron), both written and directed by Ki-duk Kim. He is really gifted, and, even though I prefer Bin-jip, the other one is not that bad either. You should watch them.
If anyone has seen any other good South Korean films, please tell us about them.
I want to watch the other two films from Chan-wook Park's vengeance trilogy because Oldeuboi is already one of my favourites. I'll let you know if I like them or not.
Mar adentro, from Alejandro Amenábar, is a really good film. It tackles subjects like euthanasia, assisted suicide and life and Javier Bardem delivers another great performance.
Yes, this is a great film. For those in the US, it was marketed as "The Sea Inside"
The trailer can be seen here (embed was disabled for this trailer)
And on a similar subject, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly ("Le scaphandre et le papillon") is also a great movie. Mathieu Amalric is great in this movie (he's a very good actor in general).
"Incendies"- Canadian/Belgium movie, directed by Denis Villeneuve-2010
I recommend it; it's a very good movie although I wish they had picked a different ending. Warning: there are scenes of psychological and graphic violence. Twin Canadian brothers of Christian Lebanese origin go to Lebanon (though the movie never says it is Lebanon, but the historical events clearly tell you it's Lebanon) to fulfill their mother's last wish. The movie has flashbacks to a horrible period of Christian-Muslim conflict leading to massacres. The side they paint worst is the Christian nationalists actually.
Twins journey to the Middle East to discover their family history, and fulfill their mother's last wishes.
I recommend this movie, I liked it a lot. It makes you think, too.
The lives of two Danish families cross each other, and an extraordinary but risky friendship comes into bud. But loneliness, frailty and sorrow lie in wait.
