Poll: The Best 1950s Foreign Movie

While it would be a stretch to say that International cinema dominated the world throughout the '50s, it seems though that many of the generally considered greatest films ever made from that decade came from somewhere else than Hollywood or Britain. The following list compiles all movies from France, Japan, Sweden, Italy etc. released during that decade and rated at least 8.0.

Which of these foreign movies from the '50s is your favorite?

Note: These movies might not be 'foreign' from your perspective but based on IMDb usual term of reference, we're talking of non-American and British movies.
