I’m from the Netherlands, good dutch movies are:



Turks Fruit (Turkish Delight)

Soldaat van Oranje (Soldier of Orange)

De Lift (Goin’ Up, The Lift)

Amsterdamned



Turks Fruit and Soldaat van Oranje are by Paul Verhoeven, definitely the best dutch director.


#3

i just recently saw the Dick Maas remake of De Lift called Down, it’s absolutely terrible, makes the original even more classic, i grew up with that film, it’s really great!


#4

Cloaca

Floris (the telivision series afcourse, starring rutger hauer & directed by paul verhoeven)

Spoorloos


#5

that topic is tough…

  1. Metropolis (by Fritz Lang)
  2. Stalingrad (by Joseph Vilsmaier)
  3. Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door (by oh damn i dunno)

For Germany, I still recommend everyone to watch out for ABSOLUTE GIGANTEN (GIGANTIC). It’s truly beautiful, with my second favourite end sequence of all time. Some other stuff that I think is worth watching (fuck the so-called “classics”):





Lichter (Distant Lights)

Wolfsburg

Die innere Sicherheit (The State I Am In)

Gegen die Wand (Head-On)

Im Juli (In July)

Schultze Gets The Blues

Solino

Halbe Treppe (Grill Point)

Muxmäuschenstill (Quiet As A Mouse)

Der Krieger und die Kaiserin (The Warrior And The Empress)

Kurz und schmerzlos (Short Sharp Shock)

Der Totmacher (Deathmaker)

Das weiße Rauschen (The White Sound)

Jenseits der Stille (Beyond Silence)

Gloomy Sunday

Die Musterknaben

I haven’t seen many German movies, but “M” by Fritz Lang is also a really good movie. I also bought Downfall recently, but I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.


#13

Hehe, Seb won’t agree with me, but I think Lola Rennt is a good German movie as well.

[/quote]noway man, it’s awsome ;D , it was the first horror movie i saw :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

I first saw The Road Warrior about twenty years ago…I have never become tired of this one - it is timeless because there are no indicators of a time period and the autos are not very easily identified…you can totally believe that this story could happen…even today these autos would still be around. It’s a real classic. I never new that the narrator was the little boy until a couple of years ago…that really blew my mind.


#18

A personal favourite of mine is Trainspotting - good Scottish drug culture movie. A lot of people don’t like the film but I do.


#19

Sweden: Sällskapsresan 1 & 2,great display of swedish mentality!

A lot of people don’t like Trainspotting? I thought everybody liked it… At least I do, I love it!
