Searching for Foreign Websites

How do I search and get results from foreign websites? Even when I search for French material using Google.fr, I still get results mostly from American sites. How do I get mostly French sites? Let's say I wanted to find out what movies are playing at an art house theater in Paris, how would I get access to results from France or say Spain. Thanks!

That one with that guy who was in the movie that was out last year ... ooh, Navy Seals!

Mefi-ites, please give me some general tips on how to identify a movie I once saw in passing, and now desperately can't identify. IMDB, Wikipedia, Koreanfilm, all provide too many results. Are there sites with dynamic search options could help those of us afflicted with this problem to narrow the list to, say, something like "south korean sci-fi in the last 5-8 years with futuristic robots, a scientists' dead son who is revived, and featuring beautiful blue-screen effects" (or something like that)?
