    I’m just wondering, if we exclude Parasite, an obvious favourite, what is everyone’s picks for their favourite Foreign Language Film of 2019?

    For me, it’s probably Portrait of a Lady on Fire, but I did enjoy Les Mis.

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire, with Pain and Glory  in a close second.

    I Lost My Body. Also from France

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Portrait of a lady on fire is my first choice. A close second would be Sibel from Turkey but I don’t know if it was released in the US or in any other country except France since it’s a French-Turkish production.

    Two animated ones: I Lost My Body and Weathering With You.

    Other than those, I enjoyed Pain and Glory, and the Swedish-Georgian film And Then We Danced was beautiful.

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire was the best foreign language film of 2019 IMO, including Parasite.

    Well, Parasite was classes above all, but I also liked Portrait of a Lady on Fire and Pain and Glory. Les Miserables was also nice.

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Of the nominated films Les Miserables. And of the submitted films Queen of Hearts (Denmark).

    If Parasite wasn’t in the running Pain and Glory would easily win. Oh well.

    In my opinion, not just the best foreign-language film of 2019, but also the best film of 2019: Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

    Excluding the nominated ones, I’d say Atlantis (the movie that won Venice’s Horizons this year, not to be confused with Atlantics by Mati Diop), The Edge of Democracy, and Martin Eden.

    Hungary’s Those Who Remained.

    One of the most beautifully written films of the year. Abigél Szõke should’ve been a worthy Best Actress nominee.

    those who remained

    Considering that, by and large, a “foreign language” film usually tops my list each year, and that non-English films dominate my lists, and also that Parasite does not even crack my top 20 non-English language films of the year, this is pretty easy!
