Aaaaah, what would our world be without the wonderful independent films from around the globe? Film knows no boundaries in terms of language and culture.

Amelie and Russian Ark are both good films. There were four films made with the same thought. I am sure they are foreign to the United States. I don't even know if I am spelling them right: Baraka, Koynisqatsi, Powiqatsi, and I can't remember the fourth. If you get a chance to see them in a theater, go. The last one was not as powerful as the other three, IMO but it is still brilliant.

Is there an international/english version of "Das Leben ist eine Baustelle" ("Life is a Building Site" or similar)? I think, it is a good film - melancholical, funny and so absurd only real life can be. Besides, Christiane Paul is a cutie.
