Yeah, one of the other ones we saw was Babe? (something to do with a talking pig and stuff). We did see Jésus de Montréal (or somewhere in Canada--apologies, it's been a long time) which I believe was French all the way, and I liked it very much. Also the beginning of the Birdcage, but since we didn't finish it I only have a hazy recollection. Now in Japanese at Cornell my friends got to watch Maison Ikkoku, which is an anime...<sigh> Lucky.
