I haven't read the Grass book it is based on, I guess it should be a better reading expierence (magic realism almost always works better on paper). The source surely is a hard one to transfer into a film, and probably the director mastered it... but I actually wasn't moved by the film, I didn't understand what was the point on telling this specific story... A good cast work, special the adult triangle and a magnificient score by Jarre (it could have been better without the eventual annoying anachronic electro-sound)... Overall it was good, but weirder than good. Maybe I missed something but it ain't necessarily a film I'd like to watch again soon...

Was this the favorite for Foreign Language Film? I mean, after its victory on Cannes surely it was...

No worse than me. The only one on your list I have seen is The Brood. Keep hoping Stalker and Quintet might grace a nearby cinema screen, but I may end up waiting a loooong time.

I haven't seen it yet... I am so bad. (Rather, I should say I haven't heard it, since I haven't "seen" The Brood yet, either, but have heard the score.)

And, yeah, Salem's Lot is a TV movie (my rules are there are no rules, pretty much). That's why I like Sukman's score for it so much. It plays up the novel's Peyton Place undertones.
