Your Favourite Foreign Language Films

Recommended Posts

**Announcement**

Tomorrow we will begin 1994 and the following Saturday 1995 as planned.  But on Saturday, April 13 we will do a week of catch-up review.  I am going to be travelling during that week and away from my computer for spells and as you may have seen I do have lots to post.  So, I hope everyone doesn’t mind.  If anyone wishes to fill some time during that week by posting about any foreign films from years pre 1995 that they have seen since their original postings that would be good.  I have about a dozen that I have seen since posting about those years.  1996 will begin on Saturday, April 20.
