Chapters 200 (!) & 201: Foreign Films

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve seen a few foreign films in the past few years, and I’ve learned that while they might be hard to understand, they are extremely captivating and interesting. While you’re watching, it is almost like you are gaining a new perspective, a new look into another culture, learning how the characters interact with each other. How they are different from us, and how they are similar. Watching these films teaches you about who you are, where you come from, and reminds us that the world is a diverse and beautiful place to be living on.

What are some of your favorite foreign films? Or if you haven’t seen any, what is one of your favorite films that you’ve seen recently? 

Have a great week!

  1. Good ones that spring to mind would be Jagten and Amour. Pablo Larrain’s historical drama “No” is pretty hard hitting as well. Problem with world cinema is difficulty in gaining excess to mainstream audiences who have been spoonfed Hollywood blockbusters. Most foreign films don’t make it to international shores and even if they do, it takes months and sometimes years. Nice post!

    1. Thank you! I haven’t seen either of those films, but they both sound extremely interesting! I wanted to see Amour, but maybe I’ll get a chance to watch it this summer! Thanks for your comment 🙂 xxoo

      1. Some have complained that Amour is a little cold and too much of an art house bore haha… an awesome foreign picture that didn’t win the Oscars (but should’ve) was french prison drama, Un prophète. Iranian film “A Separation” was pretty good too. Btw thanks for stopping by my blog, if you know of any good films do recommend too! 🙂 Cheers.

      2. It sounds interesting nonetheless, plus, it’d be a great way to delve into a new culture! As for other movies, I’ve only seen a few in Italian, namely “Johnny Stecchino” & “Io Non Ho Paura” (I Am Not Afraid). Both are wonderful films 🙂 Thank you for commenting!

  2. I have several movies that I believe are very good foreign films, the first is “Ran”, this is a spectacular epic style movie, the cinematography is incredible. It’s a must see. The other is totally different but one that in it’s own way is extremely intriguing. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” was definitely a watcher. It’s a bit graphic so be prepared. I must agree with you watching foreign films are like sirens they beg to them like mermaids to water.
