Seconding Pan's Labyrinth, The Devil's Backbone and Let The Right One In. Go for That Demon Within, Taegukgi, Ip Man and Hachiko if you like heavier stuff. Also, Kingsman and Three Idiots were fun.
For love stories, I suggest A Werewolf Boy, Shinobi: Heart Under Blade and House of Flying Daggers. Mind you, these are quite angsty.0
