Is K-Pax based on a foreign film?

I swear during the 80's I saw a Spanish-language movie with the same plot as the newest Kevin Spacey film, K-Pax. Basic plot summary is a man claiming to be an alien ends up in a mental institution. Eventually everyone comes to question whether or not he truly is an alien.

Okay, I'll answer my own question. The film was called Man Facing Southeast. It was an Argentinian film. I recall enjoying it immensely.

yes that's it. It came out in 1986 and is my favorite movie of that year.
