Something like Amélie or something completely different would be great. Also no horror - not a huge fan of horror.
I cannot guarantee a film regarding subtitles as it depends upon what format you watch it on - download, official dvd etc but here are a couple of films you may like:
The story of a marriage told in reverse. The bad times are presented first and then the whys and wherefores are told so you can make your own conclusions. Very engaging movie.

The coolest French film ever made and far before Breathless made it into classic status. Gambling has never seemed so quixotic.

I really don't know how a film about Dolphins and free diving could turn out to be one of the most beautiful films ever made but Besson managed it.

Gibson is still a great screen presence and is he really the first actor to be a twat offscreen? Of course he isn't. Classy film.

The scene in the phone booth was just perfect. Farrow also had a great performance. I really can't see any of the other actresses who were supposed to play Rosemary in the role. Farrow was perfect. The ending was a bit disappointing but I know it was extremely faithful to the book so I can't complain. Overall a very good movie.

8/10



Demian Bichir's performance was just slightly better than Clooney's performance in The Descendants. Bichir is the sole driving force of this movie. Not to say that the film isn't good. It is, just nothing we haven't seen before. I haven't gotten choked up in a while but I really did when Bichir talked to his song at the end of the film. He honestly deserved the Oscar.

6/10 film but 10/10 performance from Bichir
I hate to keep bugging you but have you watched The Snowtown Murders yet? I just REALLY need someone to convey my thoughts with about this film.

I finally watched In the Loop last night and it was even better than I hoped it would be. And this is a massive compliment considering The Thick of It is one of my Top 10 TV Shows of all time. Brilliant writing, acting, direction and story line. The best political satire I have seen on the big screen (on my laptop).

The Ladykillers (2004)

I remember being disappointed with this when I saw it in the theaters, but I think I appreciate it more with every viewing (I've watched it 3-5 times total). The whole thing is absolutely hilarious. It's nothing profound, but comedies usually aren't supposed to be. Don't trust the critics on this one. 85/100

Ruby Sparks (2012)

This was an engaging watch, but I couldn't identify with the characters at all. They are all super rich and the premise is quite dumb to be honest. Still, it's worth a shot if you want something light. 65/100

Yeah he has said some stupid **** but when he is on it there are very few actors out there with his screen presence. A great little action thriller with hints of black comedy, decent performances and cliche free dialogue and the Peckinpah inspired shootout halfway through is fantastic.

Did you watch it again or are you just elaborating on your review? I might just check this one out.

I did not enjoy this sadly as I adore Audrey.
