To celebrate the diversity and richness of films from all around the world, 209 critics from 43 different countries are polled to choose the best 100 films.

100 films from 67 different directors, from 24 countries, and in 19 languages! 27 of the films were in French, 12 in Mandarin, and 11 each in Italian and Japanese. The quarter of the films on the list are East Asian: 25 of them were made in Japan (11), China (6), Taiwan (4), Hong Kong (3) or South Korea (1).

The interesting thing about the list is the paucity of films directed by women, although 94 critics were women.

BBC Culture emphasizes the universality of the cinema by choosing films from all around the world that belong different cultures. To enjoy a great film, language and borders are not a barrier, and the language of film is universal!
