Your Favourite Foreign Language Films

Recommended Posts

The 1959 winner of the Asia Pacific Film Festival Best Picture Award was …

the-kingdom-and-the-beauty-1959-hong-kon

The Kingdom and the Beauty (1959) Han Hsiang Li, Hong Kong.

This was the only award listed for this film on the imdb.  No mention of "12 Golden Gongs" that is on the poster so I googled "golden gong" and all I got was a list of Chinese restaurants.

I've seen it, and I recall it being about half English and half subtitled. I decided not to list it with my "seen" movies because it straddled the fence.

Similarly, I also omitted the Italian David and Goliath, featuring Orson Welles as King Saul, since it was filmed partially in English as well as Italian. It would have been among the "also seens", anyway.

Never On Sunday is primarily English.  Good film and Melina Mercouri is my choice for best actress of the year.

I saw the Housemaid when it was on TCM Imports a few months ago. A man and his wife hires a new housemaid and she tears his family apart. She sleeps with him but then intentionally miscarries by falling down the stairs. Then she tries to get back at the man and his wife through their child. The ending is not what you'd expect. This was an okay movie but honestly the ending was kind of stupid.

What is up with Alain Delon in that poster? I've seen the movie, and I don't recall the part when he became a zombie. Must be from the director's cut.
