Best sci-fi movie from outside the USA?
It is not that hard to keep track of the American must-see sci-fi movies, even if there are quite a few. It is more difficult, however, to keep yourself informed about the sci-fi gems from other countries. What would be the best sci-fi movie that is not made in the USA? Rules: 1) The IMDB score has to be at least 7. 2) If there is more than one country where the movie was made, the USA cannot be among them. That is why there is no Alien or 2001: A Space Odyssey. Please discuss and suggest entries here. The original list is here.

Movies with a Minimal Cast
Some movies center on a tight drama involving a very minimal amount of characters (three, two, or even just one). They forego large casts, and that small core pretty much have all the speaking and acting parts. Some of these movies might have larger casts than just that core, but they are either "extras" in one small scene, or voice-only (offscreen). The overwhelming majority of the time and narrative of these films depicts only that minimal core interacting. These films are usually intense character studies, shown in a very small-group (or pair, or singular) dynamic. Which one of these films of that style makes use of it in a way you like best? Discuss here
