NO BOLLYWOOD movies, please, I have a separate question for them. I prefer foreign english-subtitled movies if possible. Tell me its name, the actors and what country it came from. :-)

There was this one time of when I was interested in this one 'young lady' (she was three years older than me) and she took me wanted me to watch this movie which she considered 'cultural'. The movie was "Like Water For Chocolate", a spanish speaking movie. While, yes, the movie made a statement which left an impression upon me, she thought it as 'cultural and spiritual', I found it totally 'satirical'. This 'young lady' (as I refer to to term in respect, but loosely) and I could never see eye to eye in the statement of the film. She considered me an 'unenlightened' individual, while I considered her a 'close-minded' person. Fortunately, we drifted apart. But still, I fondly remember the film after all these years.

Anthony Zimmer - Anthony Zimmer, starring Sophie Marceau, Yvan Attal and Sami Frey
Anthony Zimmer is a movie which I have seen recently which I liked, it's the movie from which The Tourist is copied from. I had already watched The Tourist and didn't like the movie at all, but I did like the French movie Anthony Zimmer and it's a pretty good movie to watch ..
