Anyone have any tips on locating a title of a foreign film? I saw an asian film on TV once that I LOVED and I want to find it and see it again, or at least know what it was called. I emailed the customer service at yesasia.com (they sell asian movies) but I haven't heard back yet.
Anyone know any other databases of movies? only the script was subtitled, not the opening or closing credits, and I didn't think to find a TV guide to find out the name.

do they archive tv guides that maybe you could backtrack it?

I have no idea when I saw it...maybe 5 years ago or more. Couldn't remember the day though.... I was in 3rd year university (so 1999 or 2000)

I doubt IMDB would have it. Besides, they only have a basic search. For a detailed search, you have to pay to use it now. It's an asian film. Without names of actors or even the language it was in, it will be hard to find. For all I know it could be some small time artsy film. The longer I go, the more I forget about the film..so I want to find it soon.
unfortunately, when you put in "spy girl asian" in google, you get ALL porn...
The movie is about a girl spy...a neighbour boy is in love with her and he spys on her threw his window, but he suspects she is abused or something from her bruises (from her job). One day he follows her and finds out she is a spy and there is an english language part with the FBI. Other than that, I can't remember any of the plot.

Hummm . . . .
Do you have any asian friends who might remember the film??
SHIRI was a film from 1997 and it was HUGE in Korea. . . I've never seen it but I think it was sorta about spies. . .
