Wiki again tells the story to the end, again a spoiler, annoying to me. Maybe they don't understand the nature of movies.
They're technically not spoilers. Wiki articles AREN'T movie reviews (which are ideally written to avoid spoilers). They're comprehensive movie summaries for people (who already seen the movie) to reference as reminders.

Re Seven Samurai, yep, I loved it. I also enjoyed the American takeoff of it, The Magnificent Seven, though it didn't beat out Seven Samurai for me.

GERMANY (by a Turkish director):
Soul Kitchen (2009)
Just as an aside: Fatih Akın isn't only the director of that film but he wrote the screenplay as well (Adam Bousdoukos was the co-writer). And he's a German, born in Hamburg. (His parents immigrated from Turkey, but live nearly all their adult life in Hamburg .... as German citizens.)

Subtitled in French. About a young boy growing up with very quirky family in Montreal. And they way he was brought into this world is about as odd as they come. Comedy, mild sexuality and dark moments. It's hard to describe how odd the story is. Gotta see it if you're interested in something entirely different.
A French comedy. I haven't seen it in a while, but it was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I can't remember the storyline exactly but there's a super racist French guy who somehow comes in contact with an Arab revolutionary, and for some reason they need to conceal their identities and end up jumping two Rabbis (one is Rabbi Jacob), taking their clothes and impersonating them. As a result, Rabbi Jacob, who has returned to France after spending several decades in America encounters many problems.
The Tiger is a South Korean film from 2015. I enjoyed it. Korean movies always make me cry.

A Man and a Woman (French: Un homme et une femme) is a 1966 French film written and directed by Claude Lelouch
I had forgotten about the film, but not one scene. The man puts his hand on the back of the chair where the woman sits and this little gesture is unbelievable sensual. Happen to see the film again not so long ago. It is very good.
