On the road looking for things to watch and came across some foreign flicks and was surprised, I enjoyed them. Any suggestions?

The ones I watched and really enjoyed:

-Thale, a Norwegian film about finding a hulder
-Verpfluckt (escape), a Norwegian film set in the 1300s, pretty good and intense
-Les Revenants, The returned, a French series, kind of creepy, mystery, I liked it a lot, a bit slow at times, but intense, can't wait for the next season
-District 13, French movie, lots of fun action and lots of parkeur and lots of guns, I like this one

In Bruges (great British film) After a job goes wrong in London, two hit men are ordered to lay low at a bed-and-breakfast in Bruges, Belgium

SURVIVORS (BBC series) When flu decimates the world's population, a scrappy group of survivors struggle to live in a world without electricity, running water or government.

Night Watch (Russian film)This first installment of this trilogy plays on the tension between light and dark, pitting superhuman patrollers against shadowy forces of the night.

HELL (German SHTF movie) After the sun has turned the entire world into a scorched wasteland, a group of survivors heads for the mountains, where they're lured into an ambush.

Heartless (British movie) A reclusive Londoner with a heart-shaped birthmark makes a deal with a devil-like figure to get a girl -- but there's a deadly price to pay.

I saw Night Watch.

My takeaway was that it was unwatchable unless you were drunk on absinthe....and by drunk I mean at least a liter and a half into it.

Great books though. The translation from Russian makes the actual writing a little quirky, but excellent story. The movies are nothing like the books. Good light reading.

Alatriste, Spanish subtitled film on youtube. someone on here recommended it. I enjoyed it. Follows the life of a Spanish swordsman in the 80 year war.

Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter also on youtube in three parts, here is where it gets weird.
If you want to watch it on youtube find the Russian dubbed version, then select English subtitles, take my word for it, German to English subtitles doesn't work well.
Was originally a German Mini-series about German friends in WWII and how it impacted them.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. It's annoying to see actors who are supposed to be Nazis speaking English with a British accent, but the movie is well done.

ETA-for those who like fucked up movies, Irreversible is on there, and if you like movies that are bad on purpose, there's always Rubber and Zombie Ass-Toilet of the Dead. All are foreign.

Rare Exports. I'm not sure it's still on Netflix Instant, but that's where I saw it over a year ago. You won't see another movie like it.
