My 5 favourite films of 2006, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
Del Toro's EL LABERINTO DEL FAUNO, are :

CASINO ROYALE
CHILDREN OF MEN
LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA
OSS 117 : LE CAIRE, NID D'ESPIONS
THE PRESTIGE


I find 2006 is a fantastic year with both great movies and great "little" movies !

Yep, it's The Lives of Others. Should have been overall "Best Picture."

This was ingenious. I love the twist - you think it's going to be about a spoiled, gold-digging girl who learns to appreciate the lower-class guy - which, yes, it is - but also he ends up becoming a gigolo himself with her giving him pointers! lol

And, holy smokes, Audrey Tautou is utter visual magnificence.

Very happy you enjoyed this one ! smile

And I agree about the ingenious plot. Actually the director, Pierre Salvadori, is also well- known for the quality and originality of his scripts. He takes his time (4 years between each movie) but it's worth waiting.
