Just watched this film yesterday for the second time after first having seen it in the theater probably a year ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Bread

It's the first foreign language film in Catalan to ever be accepted to the Academy Awards. As someone who is a student of Catalan and who sympathizes greatly with the plight of the Catalans under the Franco regime, this story was of particular interest to me. As a fledgling filmmaker, I admire this film for being a finely crafted work of art. It's pretty dark, heavy, and sometimes violent, but probably will appeal to those who were fans of Pan's Labyrinth in terms of period and style.
