Foreign Films

This is a list of foreign film titles that feature librarians, arranged alphabetically by title. I have collected these titles from various sources (books, web sites, articles). As I have narrowed my focus right now to English-language films, I cannot state for certain that every film on this list actually includes a librarian.
