Film Quizzes: Great Foreign Films

I wasn’t planning on doing another film quiz soon after my Magic post, but in the comments section from my Teachers quiz an idea for foreign films was suggested by Leí, whose blog I discovered recently. While most of my quizzes focus on Hollywood, I have always had a fondness for films from different cultures, and even did a Blogathon entitled Foreign Favourites. Below are 15 stills from successful films made in different languages and cultures. How many can you work out? There are countless more I could have included, so feel free to mention any you’re especially fond of.

    • I’ve always had a soft spot for Le Diner des Cons. One of those that seems to lose its charm in a remake. It’s very funny. I write a review back when if you wanted to see it. Superb score 👍

  1. Did you mean number 10 Life is Beautiful and number 9 – Le dîner de cons? I missed Le diner de cons because I have never seen it, and I thought some of those are much easier than others. The first one anyone who has seen can tell, but I can barely guess Cinema Paradiso (have seen it some years ago) or some German films. My score is 12/15. A good, but pleasantly challenging quiz this time!
