There have been two IMDb polls about films that each use two or more languages. Below, in alphabetical order, are the winners of each poll. This poll serves as the run-off poll to determine the ultimate answer to this question: Which movie uses the changing languages to best effect, whether by creating authenticity, enhancing atmosphere, or other such outcomes?

Nice to see the two polls ending up in such solid winners as I love multilingual movies. Always trying to mix languages up in my own productions for many reasons: firstly it's reflective of real world which becomes more and more multilingual, secondly I love to have at least something for many language speakers there and thirdly it is often reflective of how I think (as I think in the mixutre of Ukrainian, Russian and English).

I agree. And that's so cool that you think in three languages! I'm fluent only in English so I can't really do that, except occasionally I think in a little bit of "Spanglish," lol. I also know a bit of Russian and a very small bit of Mandarin so sometimes single words will come into my thoughts, like "I want a ping of water." : )
(Ping is bottle in Mandarin.) I'm in awe of people who are bilingual or, in your case,  trilingual.

rubyfruit76, that type of thinking really helps to switch quickly between languages... I'm still afraid to think what will happen when some fourth language will join the equation, though. Out of several languages I pursue more or less reluctantly the likeliest candidates are Dutch and French. :)

Oh, Tora! Tora Toria! is a good one but, unfortunately, this is a run-off between the winners of two previous polls. At some point, there will be more multilingual films and I can do another one, perhaps. If I or someone else does eventually, Tora is there on my mental list and here to remind me. : )

Congratulations! :D
It's tempting to pick a movie I think is the best of them all in all, but thinking on the effect of the different languages I pick 'Babel'. I think it's a silent movie that has some power and the name of the movie has power, figuratively. I think the whole movie is underestimated.
