Good film but I wish they didn't schedule English language films for TCM Imports, or if they did they were at least Giallo or Spaghetti westerns or something. A film from Australia could be programmed any day really.

Updated with May 2019 schedule.

I'm not sure what's up with the third week's lineup. It's Watership Down and Twice Upon a Time, both of which are English language, and the latter of which is American. It may be part of a late-night animation spotlight, as the Silent Sunday programming that night is also animated. We'll have to wait and see if the above-mentioned are presented under the TCM Imports banner or if Imports will just be preempted that night.

Updated through December, so there's the full year of TCM Imports. I won't be continuing this next year, so anyone so inclined to take over, feel free to undertake it.

Does anyone know the song that has been playing for the import promo for this month and last month? I can’t find it anywhere.
