On your query, oh yes, movies before 1986 are also available at Amazon. I chose to start in 1986 because it was also at that time that the award’s name was changed from Best Foreign Film to the now known Best in Foreign Language Film. Hope you can help spread these movies magnificent movies. All are outstanding and brilliant =) Thanks again =)
