Have you seen Jeux d'enfants? I heard about it on this forum and it became my favorite film...
I also quite liked Intouchables and La vita e bella (duh
) and other Benigni's works, Les enfants du paradis. I love this film "Vlak u snijegu", but it's very old and not translated to English. Also his http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emir_Kusturica
films are told to be very good, but I'm not sure if you'd like them.
You should check out some of the Scandinavian films, I've always had a thing for them.
Oh and please do "get into a long list"
