Well folks, it’s time to dust off your multi-lingual dictionaries and recharge your digital translators because, this week, it’s all about the foreign language film. Movies from Sweden, Greece, and France are in attendance, and an adaptation of a British novel – set in India – and a documentary centered on a Frenchman round out the global palette. Meanwhile, adventures in primordial lands and expeditions in parapsychology offer journeys to the past and to another dimension. And the voyages don’t stop here. Next week: the fabled Gotham City awaits!

Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice. But one of the few things he has returned to is the work of Thomas Hardy. The late 19th century British author has so far inspired two of the director's films: 1995's "Jude," an adaptation of "Jude the Obscure" with Kate Winslet, and "The Claim," a version of "The Mayor of Casterbridge" moved to a Californian mountain Western setting.

Does Michael Winterbottom ever stop working? In the 17 years since his debut "Butterfly Kiss," he's helmed twenty feature films, averaging more than one a year, and the director has several more in the works: he's wrapped on "King of Soho," with Steve Coogan, ambitious, multi-year project "Here and There" is nearing completion, and he's got Jack Black vehicle "Bailout" and Beatles flick "The Longest Cocktail Party" on the dance card as well. And his most recent picture isn't even in theaters yet.

Michael Winterbottom is a genre chameleon. It's frankly astonishing that the same director made "24 Hour Party People," "9 Songs," "A Mighty Heart," "The Killer Inside Me," and "The Trip" amongst others, all within the last ten years. Coming next from Winterbottom is "Trishna," an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel, "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," but transported to Rajasthan, India.

'The Ides Of March,' 'We Need To Talk About Kevin,' 'Carnage,' 'Wuthering Heights' & More Also IncludedWe're really getting into the thick of festival season by now. Telluride is long departed, things are winding down in Venice (we're here for another 24 hours, but it's starting to look like a ghost town), and The Playlist team head off to Toronto this afternoon. But there's plenty more on the way in the months to come. Only this morning, AFI Fest revealed that it would open with the premiere of Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar," and shortly afterwards, the full line-up for the 55th BFI London Film Festival has been announced.
