Top 10 foreign film theatrical releases - first half of 2005

Postby trevor826 » Mon Jul 04, 2005 9:05 am

In date order.

Reconstruction - Christoffer Boe 2003

Vodka Lemon - Hiner Saleem 2003

Good Morning Night, Buongiorno, notte - Marco Bellocchio 2003

Turtles Can Fly, Lakposhtha hm parvaz mikonand - Bahman Ghobadi 2004

The Holy Girl, La Nia santa - Lucrecia Martel 2004

Koktabel - Boris Khlebnikov, Aleksei Popogrebsky 2003

Don't Move, Non ti muovere - Sergio Castellitto 2004

Head On, Gegen die Wand - Fatih Akin 2004

Maria Full of Grace - not a true foreign film but it'll have to do. Joshua Marston 2004

Untold Scandal, Joseon namnyeo sangyeoljisa - Je-yong Lee 2003

So far some good films but not as much choice as the same period of 2004, I haven't had the opportunity to see any films in the cinema during June because of my foot. I have high hopes for the second half of 2005 but not from any of our multiplex's.

What are your choices?

Cheers Trev.
