Did anybody see Roberto Benini's Pinocchio?

I didn't see it, but if I remember correctly, it got pretty universally panned here in the States.

I saw this years ago, and I can't remember much other than the basic outline (a Jewish boy during WWII who attempts to escape persecution by joining the Hitler youth). I remember being favorably impressed.

absolutely.
I'd also recommend ' Être et avoir' : a documentary about a small provincial school in France. Wonderful and the same sentiments for this as for 'Ponette'

oh yeah, i forgot - Renoir's Grand Illusion - sortof pan-european, dialogue in french, german, english, maybe italian too. nevermind Eurotrip - i'll take National Lampoon's European Vacation FTW. *** edit: also i remember seeing Manon du Printemps and another one, can't remember the title, years ago. I guess I liked it...it's been too long.

ahhh... I remember it....

At the risk of hijacking my own thread... must just go off at a tangent: we've just watched Roman Holiday; who compares to Audrey H.?
No one. Those eyes. That bone structure. Adorable.

Back on message: Hidden (Cache) was stunning, I'd agree. Did anyone see another Hanke movie, 'Funny Games'? As difficult to sit through as 'Irreversible' at times.

I saw it last night and was rather unimpressed. It was mildly entertaining but not deserving of all the praise it has received imo. Hitchockian comparisons are clearly overblown. The film has nothing on Hitchcock.

Ponette is a real tear-jerker. Kolya is also in the same vein.

The best movie I have seen all year is: Va, vis et deviens (Live and become). Wonderfully acted and a truly poignant story. Well worth seeing.

Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la Bête. This isn't for the children. El Ãngel Exterminador.

also one of my picks. I didnt know it was available on dvd as a region 0 PAL as I'd never been able to find it on VHS back in the dark ages. Just got notice my copy mailed today, cant wait to watch it again as the last I saw it was back in '90 or 91.

Not sure if these were mentioned already:

Cinema Paradiso
La Finestra di Fronte (facing windows)
Un coeur en hiver (and other Claude Sautet movies)
Some of the old Delon and Belmondo movies
Quai des brumes, and other Jean Gabin movies
Ponette (will break your heart)
The tin drum (Die Blechtrommel)
Caroline Link's Beyond Silence (Jenseits der Stille) and Nowhere in Africa (Nirgendwo in Afrika)
The marriage of Maria Braun (Die Ehe der Maria Braun)
Europa Europa

I'll stop here for a while, but it would be a crime not to mention:

Any of Les Bronzés

+1 (again) on Die Ehe der Maria Braun and Cinema Paradiso

Amelie, L'Auberge Espagnol, and Last Tango in Paris have been some of my favorites.
