Post by Justin Credible » Fri Mar 17, 2017 10:19 pm

For the sophisticated members


These are the ones I have seen and recommend of the top of my head


Forbrydelsen...aka the Killing - A danish cop show
Borgen - Danish political themed series
Hatufim - Israeli show about prisoners returning home after spending years in Lebanon- Homeland the US show was based on this
Engranages (Spiral) - French cop show, sixth season coming soon, and most successful french show ever
Gomorrah - Italian show about the mafia and drugs trade in Napoli 3rd season coming soon.
Okkupert - Norwegian show about Russian takeover of Norway
Deutschland 83 - German show obviously set in ..wait for it...1983
Wallander - Swedish...bit slow but I enjoyed it
Narcos - Show about Paoblo Escobar
Broen (the tunnel) - Swedish and Danish show about crimes either side of the bridge...the yanks made a remake and the brit also called the tunnel.
Braquo - French tv cop show
Versailles - In English but a french made show with some brit actors about the intrigue at the Palace of versailles

Movies

Lives of Others
Troop D'Elite 1 + 2
Jean de Flourette + Manon de sources

Foreign films are generally only good for the brief sex scene.

I thought REC was quite good.

You're watching the wrong foreign films if they only have brief sex scenes.

why would anyone watch a movie for a censored sex scene ?
I dont get it, If i want to watch a sex scene i watch a proper one in a porn movie or whatever.

Reminds me of years ago guys i knew going to the video library who would get a movie cos there was tits on the back cover,
Just get a porno you thick cunts if thats what you want

Similar to those "special discretion required" films with the red triangle in the top corner of the screen that channel 4 used to screen late on a Friday night in the mid eighties.

Yep, most of those films were a load of shite.

Must admit Hutchy, I'm a little disappointed.

When I saw that the forum wordsmith had made the latest post in this thread i was eagerly anticipating recommendations of some intellectual foreign films from the 50s or obscure series from Indonesia or something like that.

Talking of Indonesia "The Raid" is a cracking film if you like blood & snot kung-fu with a raw edge.

It's in my top 5 action films of all time, sequel's not too shabby either.

Reminds me. Hard Boiled (Hong Kong). Find it nearly impossible to follow the plot, but it is possibly the greatest action film ever made. John Woo at his completely-over-the-top best.

Used to watch them all the time. Never managed to read the subtitles because I was too busy wanking.
