    Hey, nice write up. It’s funny, I’m finishing up a similar list. We shall have a tiny bit if overlap me thinks!

  2. Daniel Nava says:

    Good list. I’d recommend Cache, Certified Copy, along with the Dardenne Brother’s filmography, particularly Rosetta.

  3. Nice list! I absolutely love Amelie and A Very Long Engagement (maybe it’s an Audrey Tatou thing!). I also like Tell No-One and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Also, for a bit of harmless nonsense, District 13 isn’t bad. There’s plenty here I haven’t seen that I’ll look into though.

      Thanks. I don’t think I’ve seen ‘Tell No-One’ and am intrigued by it. I also heard about District 13, but haven’t watched it yet. The other two new films I think I would have considered including are ‘The Kid with a Bike’ and ‘Amour’, the latest ‘masterpiece’ from Michael Haneke. I should really get them on my list of ‘must-watch’.

  4. Dan says:

    Interesting top 10. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Untouchable so I’m looking forward to checking that out very soon. Can’t argue with La Haine at the top of the list.

    Great to see Monsieur Lazhar on that list.
    It could have been terribly mawkish but it’s handled so well it becomes almost overwhelmingly sad.
