Why I Love Foreign Films

Culture

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.

  1. The actors are not just the pretty people. They are identifiable.
  2. Foreign films are all about the dialogue.
  3. Often, the movie is just about a moment of life. No explosions, car chases, or huge drama necessary.
  4. Scenery and insight into countries other than our own.

Here are some foreign films I enjoyed. Il Postino being my all time favorite.
