Difret is my favourite Ethiopian film of all time. It's the story of an abducted girl and the lawyer who defends her. It's a protest against rape and arranged marriages of young girls. The teen actress is convincing; Meron Getnet is charismatic as the lawyer who challenges the system. The film, based on a true story, was banned in Ethiopia.

Labyrinth of Lies (Im Labyrinth des Schweigens) is set in West Germany in the 1950s. Alexander Fehling plays a young, idealistic public prosecutor who's interested in former WWII criminals. He finds out that an Auschwitz camp commander is now living a normal life as a teacher. He wants to bring this man to justice, but that means a long and hard struggle against the bureaucratic institutions.

The Admiral: Roaring Currents - Recreation of the Battle of Myeongnyang during the Japanese invasion of Korea. The battle scenes are too CGI laden (the scene with the cannonballs is the worst) but well choreographed. Also includes some gory scenes involving slaughter of villagers and beheadings based on real Japanese crimes. This is also the highest grossing South Korean film of all time.
