It's my pleasure to present thriller movies with other genres -like Mystery- Thrillers and with sub-genres like -Psychological-Thrillers. Closely related Horror film genre is also on the list which you might find interest.
Although drama is drama, i wanted to form an extra list (beginning with the documentary called Ashes and Snow (2005) ) of best films based on drama genre mostly ,expect other genres -in that film- such as romance, from each country. I also wanted to choose -the hope itself consisting one- where i doubted which film to add of that country.
When a film belonged to many countries- such as "Babel (2006)"- i have chosen the less knowing one between them- For instance that movie has been considered from Morocco, despite it belonged to Japan and USA as well-.
With that taste of choice, i considered movies the less knowing one in cinema where it filmed in another country-such as " The Stoning of Soraya M." is considered as a movie from Persia despite it is filmed in the USA".
I have also added some movies which give us a great oppurtunity to see the beauty of related country. Some related movies are Island Etude (2006) from Taiwan, Kauwboy (2012) from the Netherlands.
With the hope of this extra list starting with the documentary "Ashes and Snow" will be a guide for you on the drama films which are mainly based or inspired on a true story. I gave the priority of dramas of children or children related ones firstly, and then adults and older people lastly.
Very picky list of movies that haves a story which takes the viewer on a journey and adventure worth remembering.
Remember not to read the summary. It ruins the experience! Going head first into a world without the establish knowledge makes the experience all better!
I would also like to add that these movies shouldn't be ranked in any number order. They are all equally GREAT!
