The Acquisition of Roku (a small device that streams Netflix and other internet channels) has led to a household embrace of foreign films. Top on the list is "Pingu," a Swiss claymation series about a penguin named Pingu and his family. It's the best. They speak in a soft Scandinavian gibberish and get into Antarctic related hijinx. I would recommend it for anyone who finds themselves with a few minutes to fill.
Here's a link to the first Pingu short I ever saw. It was love at first sight.
For adults, we also enjoy Danish police procedural "The Eagle" and the Norwegian thriller "Headhunters" (even though it takes a bit of a gross turn at the end). "Heaven" starring Cate Blanchett and Giovani Ribisi was beautiful and perplexing and had both English speaking stars speaking Italian.
Anyone have an American movies to recommend?
