Some to look up here, also I'd add The Hunt - there are lots of films called that, I mean the Madds Mikkelson one. Another of his that's good is After the Wedding. I'm not scared, excellent Italian film. 36 recommended above is a brilliant film. I like old Daniel Auteuill thrillers generally. Also in French, Pour Elle is a great watch. I think it had a bad US remake, avoid that. Special Forces in French/English. 0 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 0 Vote up!
