I confess a soft spot for foreign movies and do not mind subtitles. My friends do not share this love. Who wants to come home at the end of the work day to ‘read the TV or movie screen’ they protest? I say it is worth exploring foreign language films as they offer another perspective from mainstream films.
Luckily the library has a huge variety of feature films – including many from as far away as Korea, Japan, France and Spain. I watched Mongol last night. A Russian film about the early life of Genghis Khan. A bit of a bloodthirsty romp, but more enjoyable than watching mindnumbing sitcoms!
So this year come into your local community library to browse through the DVD collection.
Alternatively, explore this collection online by searching Feature Films. That way you get a list of feature films divided by country.
