I remember reading about Au Revoir, Les Enfants - never did see it.

A friend liked La Ronde - I never did see it.

Like most Kurasawa movies.

Bicycle Thief not one of my favorite italian films.

Oh Osso - Au Revoir, Les Enfants was very very good. And I didn't like the bicycle thief, either - another hideous one one starring Peter Falk is Wings of Desire ...

I did like:

Diva
Jean de Florette (Part I)
Manon des Sources (Part II)
My Mother's Castle
My Father's Glory
Babette's Feast
The Shiralee (Aussie)

Something by Bergman, I think. I forget which one (saw quite a few later), but it was very anguished and tortured. I loved it! Very Happy

Could well have been, malek. I had a big run on Bergman & I'm not sure in which order I saw them. Somewhere in there was Cries & Whispers, too.

Oliver The Musical.......Of course....!
But IMHO ,I'll stick with the 1948 version with Alec Guinness as Fagin and the great Robert Newton as Bill Sykes Cool .

"Les Enfants du Paradis".
When I was in Nice, we went to the theatre to see a ballet. I insisted on buying the cheapest tickets. They are way on top, under the ceiling. We took the elevator up four floors and sat way up, looking down onto the stage.
I said to my friend: "we are sitting in the 'paradis', like 'les enfants' (the poor) in the movie.
The film is a great b/w melodrama; unforgettable. I have seen it at least a dozen times.

This was not my first foreign film or first loved foreign film, but the mention of Children of Paradise reminds me of it -

Moliere, directed by Ariane Mnouchkine
That was stupendous.

Under the noses of the Nazi occupiers the French managed to make a great film that was, in a way, anti-nazi. It took courage to mock the Gestapo with this masterpiece.
