  1. Please, share with the class what you like about these movies…

  2. 1) I didn’t even know there were ten German films total.
    2) Where is Uwe Boll on this list?
    3) I agree with Ryan, some commentary would be nice. On the other hand, some of those still shots almost speak for the movies as well as commentary might.

  3. germans sure are depressing.

  4. What about Das Boot???? j/k

    Also, you should make a list of your favorite German bands and then we can compare lists.

  5. ps: My list…Nena and Rammstein

  6. Krabat should be on this list – but perhaps it wasn’t out yet at the time of this positng :-)
