            <Well, of course, any film not made in the US is a foreign film....>

            To Americans yes...

            <But, I'm quite sure that 'I am curious, yellow', while perhaps
    > swedish, was not a Bergman.>
            On a hunch it wasn't Bergman, I just looked it up on IMDB, and
    discovered it to be a 1967 film by Vilgot Sjoman, of Sweden. It's correct
    title is 'Jag ar nyfiken- en film i gult' (any Swedish list members to
    translate?), and was called 'I am curious yellow' in the USA. It was banned
    in Finland and Norway until 1970, and, initially, seized at US customs. It
    used a mix of fiction and documentary techniques, was sexually explicit and
    politically controversial.

            The films you guys watched in your youth.....


            [ps The Fall song is indeed called 'I am curious Orange' and is
    loosely about William of Orange, and the film is an apparent influence also]

            [pps, do I win the Gold Medal for trivial list contributions?]
