The White Ribbon (German: Das weiße Band, Eine deutsche Kindergeschichte) is a 2009 black and white drama written and directed by Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke. The story darkly depicts society and family in a northern German village just before World War I. According to Haneke, the film is about "the origin of every type of terrorism, be it of political or religious nature."

It premiered at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival in May 2009 and won the Palme d'Or.

A Prophet (French: Un prophète) is a 2009 French crime film directed by Jacques Audiard.

Sentenced to six years in prison, young man Malik El Djebena (Tahar Rahim) is alone in the world and can neither read nor write. On his arrival at the prison he falls under the sway of a Corsican Mafia group, led by Luciani, who enforce their rule in the prison. Malik toughens himself and wins the confidence of the Corsican group. He follows Luciani's orders to kill prisoner Reyeb. Luciani arranges 12-hour leaves for Malik, in which Luciani sends him on missions, including murder. Malik learns how to read and write, and uses all his intelligence to discreetly develop his own network. His power grows and finally he is no longer on Luciani's side.

El secreto de sus ojos (English: The Secret In Their Eyes) is a 2009 Argentine dramatic crime film, directed by Juan José Campanella and based on Eduardo Sacheri's novel La pregunta de sus ojos (The Question In Their Eyes). The film stars Ricardo Darín, Soledad Villamil, Javier Godino, Guillermo Francella and Pablo Rago. The movie won the Goya Awards, the Spanish equivalent to the American Academy Awards for best movie of 2009. It has recently been nominated for the 82nd Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. As of 2010 it has become the second most succesful film in the history of its country, only surpassed by Leonardo Favio's classic, Nazareno Cruz y el lobo (a.k.a. Nazareno Cruz and the Wolf).

Ajami is a long shot Israeli film. 

The Milk of Sorrow is Peruvian.
