I did not! Any language and you have made me think of a French movie or two I should have included: C.R.A.Z.Y and Elvis Gratton are two very different filmns and both highly memorable. Oh and then there's Bon Cop Bad Cop which is bilingual!

Pixote! I remember when they showed that at school I had to walk out. Tough, tough movie.
I like how we are all juxtaposting that kind of movie with others like When Harry Met Sally. And I LOVED 6 Degrees. I fell in love with Stockard Channing when I saw her in Grease and have never stopped.

I felt physically ill while watching Pixote. I can't remember much about the plot, but the feeling stuck with me.

I felt physically ill watching Withnail and I, but that was my own fault for trying to keep up with Withnail's drinking....
