I’ve always watched foreign films. However, living in Mexico there are many channels of French, Spanish, or Portuguese films (with Spanish subtitles of course). Depending on how fast paced the movie, I can keep up 50-75%. It’s always a perk if I can get the subtitles in English (obviously). I still enjoy watching them and here is why.
- The actors are not just the pretty people. They are identifiable.
- Foreign films are all about the dialogue.
- Often, the movie is just about a moment of life. No explosions, car chases, or huge drama necessary.
- Scenery and insight into countries other than our own.
Here are some foreign films I enjoyed. Il Postino being my all time favorite.
