My favorites are:

Shaolin Soccer-Chinese movie that's over the top comedy that mixed martial arts and soccer(football)
Secret- Chinese movie about two music students who fall in love and mysterious piano piece.
Man from nowhere- intense Korean action movie about an ex assassin
A Werewolf Boy- a Korean tearjerker about a werewolf boy who didn't grew up in human society and a family teaches him to be more human.
Like father like son- a Japanese drama about a family that finds out that their biological son was accidentally switched with another baby at birth.
Okuribito (departures)- a Japanese drama about a guy who gets layed off from the orchestra he played in and goes to work in a funeral home

I've got this one. It's also from Kore-eda.

I also recommend Getting Any, the most what da fuck movie I've ever seen. Supa supa supa funny. It's about a looser and his adventures in the quest for sex whatever, kind a bunch of non-sense more or less loosely connected sketches. It works very well. Attention: people will think you kinda weird if you're in this :P   But it's worth the shame.

Lexx - I Worship His Shadow (Canada)

Canada, UK, and Germany. And probably crack. :)

I really liked season 1 and 2 but it's one of the weirdest shows I ever watched.

Ah, why did it always come too late in my mind. The best World War II aerial battle movie ever:

"The Battle of Britain"

Would be more interesting if people explained why they recommend a movie. Perhaps it could inspire people to watch it :wink:

Some movies not from the US/Hollywood market/style are many and numerous. I have seen so many that I can't even remember them all  :tongue:

What does spring to mind are the following:

Wadjda https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2258858/?ref_=nv_sr_1

This film is directed by the first female Saudi director and is a great story about how a girl wants to buy a bike and ride it, in a culture where girls don't ride bikes.

Ten Canoes https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0466399/?ref_=nv_sr_1

This film is an Aboriginal Australian story. It's very different, but is very interesting to watch.

11'09"01 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0328802/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

This film features short films from directors from around the world and their various interpretations of September 11.
