Cinema is the most international of arts, with overseas classics inspiring renowned film makers for generations, and more recently being subjected to the Hollywood remake (sometimes successfully.. other times not so much).
The diversity, class and sheer volume of titles available is staggering, so the task of selecting our favourites was no mean feat, however we’re troopers here at TLFR and soldiered on to put together a list of our recommendations in order to get you started on your quest to be international film buffs. Enjoy, and let us know you’re suggestions in the comments below.
