And speaking of "Apocalypto" which used the Maya language, that reminded me of yet another non-English language film which Mel Gibson also directed: The Passion. It was actually great to watch a movie that had Hebrew, Aramaic and Latin in it!

The first three films are Swedish right? I know "Run Lola Run" is German but I've not watched it.

My short list:
Das Boot
Life is Beautiful (I think was in italian)
