Top 6 Foreign Films to watch when you are too sick to get out of bed.
I love foreign films! You know, the ones you have to read and watch at the same time? You should never watch a foreign film with voice over in your language, unless it is filmed in your language! LOL You lose the feelings, the drama, the intensity. Here are my 6 FAVORITE movies, ever.
There is some sensitive subject matter discussed and shown in these films. So please be warned, they may be a trigger for some.
This amazing French language film follows the lovable Ludvic whose gender was chosen at birth to be male, as he professes his wishes to be a girl. His family humors his wishes, but this causes trouble for his parents.
This Iranian film follows a group of Kurdish children who organize to clear the mine fields. "Satelite" is an brilliant child who aims to capitalize on un-detonated mines while helping keep communications open for the refugee camp. He and a girl named Agrin and other children struggle to survive, deal with the past and fight their own feelings.
This minimalist Iranian film about a man planning to end his own life had me enthralled. I had to see how this ended...
This French film is about Juliette, a former physician who was just released from prison. She is staying with her sister and her sisters family. The sister knew nothing of the crime, or why her much older sister was in prison. Slowly, Juliette opens up about her crime, and integrates with the family she has barely known.
