Filter by movie country
It is nice to have a good recommendation for artsy movies but I would like to have the option to filter them out.
We are planning to add the capability of filtering by language, which I think gets you what you’re looking for.
I suppose the other option would be to have a filter to “hide a genre” – e.g., all genres except x. We’re not planning that one, but happy to hear feedback.

I want to see movies made in UK and spoken in British English, but this filter might show me movies about rednecks from the U.S, which I don't want to see at this very moment.
I also want to see a movie from Germany, but where everyone speaks English with German accent.
I never watch foreign films so I would really appreciate this!
IMDB has the information about movie origin, maybe you can import it from there.
The problem is that the language category is misleading. For example, there are quite a few Hollywood action movies out there that have both English and Arabic listed as language, just because the terrorist villain shouts "Yalla!" at some point during a gunfight ;) The same is true for virtually any movie that treats issues of multicultural society. In these cases filtering by language will neither help me to avoid nor to look specifically for a foreign movie.
Fair enough, Juan. However, we do not have "country" in our database, while we do have languages.
I disagree. Language and country are very independent concepts and not exchangeable.
