My interest in foreign films began when I first signed up with Netflix sometime in 2008. Netflix was not known for having a great selection of movies back then, so I started streaming some foreign films just based on the summaries. I was surprised that I had seen six of the movies listed. I did not realize I had gotten quite that involved in foreign films!
I would add "I Can't Think Straight" and "Room in Rome" to the list. I'm partial to them both because they are about gay women, but they are both entertaining in their own ways. I'd also add Bollywood's "Lagaan: Once Upon A Time In India" to the list. The musical parts lasted a bit longer than I liked, but it was humorous and the cricket match between the Brits and the Indians was awesome. And of course, the incredibly beautiful Rachel Shelley starring in it was a bonus.
Now, it's time to go check Netflix for the ones on this list I have not seen yet!
