A few "different ones" stand out for me.
The first is "The Big Blue" Directed by Luc Besson, with Jean-Marc Barr, Rosanna Arquette and Jean Reno. Its about a open diver (one breath and go as deep as you can) his lifelong rival/friend. His sort of half man half fish nature and how his family actually might be dolphins. Very beautifully shot and interestingly acted, but 95% of the people that watch it look at me strangely and so..."HUH?" when its over.
The second is "Babette's gastebud" aka "Babette's Feast". A Denmark import film with subtitles only...about the liberating affect of good food...shot in a 10 building village in the hinterlands of Denmark. BTW it won the Best Foreign Language Film Acadamy Award.
And lastly "Brotherhood of the Wolf". How can you beat a French Kung Fu Native Americian Horror Saga set in revolutionary France? With Monica Bellucci as a prostitute hitwoman ...for the Vatician! (carfeul all...she is very naked in this one!...) Weird...well perhaps to some..but I loved it! Oh...if you watch it don't use the dubbed version. The french with subtitles is MUCH better.
