First Posted: 07/14/11 09:26 AM ET   Updated: 09/13/11 06:12 AM ET

At its halfway point, 2011 has seen a number of blockbusters already -- think "Bridesmaids," "Hangover II," "X-Men" -- but it's also seen a range of more quiet films that have moved us, without being laugh-out-loud funny or gimmicky.

Here are our picks for those films that gave us more than we were bargaining for when we entered the theater. Give us your picks for the unexpectedly good films of the year in the comments.

Certified Copy

Abbas Kiarostami's "Certified Copy" follows two strangers, who in the span of one day cover the course of an entire relationship, as they walk the streets and fall the roles of husband and wife. It's bizarre, to be sure, but by subverting reality ever so slightly, it makes for a more powerful comment on how relationships progress, and regress.
