1001 languages?

glob

Time to expand the list substantially with what must be my longest post ever!

Found this a while back:
http://www.listology.com/flogged/list/1001-movies-you-must-see-you-die

I’ve now sorted out posts about additional movies in different local editions, and here’s a hefty bunch of »world cinema« for true 1001 aficionados to start searching for! Myself, I’ve seen all the swedish ones but very few of the others. I sincerely doubt that I’ll ever manage to track down all of these, but it will be fun to try!

    That is a massive amount of Greek films! I had no idea they made that many.
    Some of these films have been included in the 10th English edition, but I am surprised that a title like Le Grand Bleu has not been added.
    Presumably many of the Finnish titles are by Aki Kaurismäki. I wonder why he is practically absent from the master list.

  2. Don’t know if the numbers are sign of greek self-aggrandization (and norwegian modesty?) or mere coincidence, but I was also surprised about the apparent differences in »ambition« regarding the local editions.

    Kaurismäki has co-written the script of Arvottomat together with his brother, so that’s at least one more entry for the Finnish master of melancholy.

    And I, for one, definitely wouldn’t protest if Le grand bleu was added.

  4. Hi

    Thank you for the additions, they are very appreciated! I have updated the main post.

    »Hon dansade en sommar«, »Kvarteret Korpen«, »En kärlekshistoria«, »Mitt liv som hund« and »Fucking Åmål« are from the swedish edition, however.
