–I’m very sorry that it took me so long to compile the results of this poll. I should have compiled its results on December 12, 2009. I am more than two months late. It is partly because I have been too much addicted to Facebook, so I don’t have much time to blog any more. It is also because I have been watching the TV channel “TV5 MONDE ASIE” lately. It shows about 4 new French films/mini-series with English subtitles each week. That means I am now spending about 7 hours a week in front of TV, instead of blogging. My time for internet is very limited now.

–Other films I love in the European Union Film Festival in Bangkok include:

21.ADEUS, PAI (1996, Luís Filipe Rocha, Portugal)

22.AMNESIA (2001, Martin Koolhoven, Netherlands)

23.EL CHICKO (1995, David Rühm, Austria)

24.THE CRUEL EMBRACE (1987, Marion Hänsel, Belgium)

25.DECEMBER BRIDE (1990, Thaddeus O’Sullivan, UK)

26.ELINE VERE (1991, Harry Kümel, Netherlands)

27.THE ICE RINK (1998, Jean-Philippe Toussaint, Belgium)

28.PEPPERMINT (1999, Costas Kapakas, Greece)

29.WITH GREAT JOY (2001, Lodewijk Crijns, Netherlands)

30.ZAPPA (1983, Bille August, Denmark)
