Foreign fancies

Movies have the power to transport our thoughts to a completely different dimension of reality. We laugh, we cry, we hide our face when this storybook created specifically for our entertainment asks us to show emotion. This transformation can be very powerful especially when we are in need of a laugh or a cry. Have you tried foreign films? We are instantly planted in a different country with unfamiliar cultures and yet people are exactly the same as they are in our country. We are all one yet we live on a massive planet. Who needs a plane ticket? Foreign films can feel like a mini holiday into new cities and far away country sides. Slide into a new world and don't mind the subtitles!

  1. I have always wanted to try foreign films...I'm not sure why I haven't. Subtitles don't bother me at all so you'd think I would have tried by now!

  3. I love foreign films. They broaden my mind and heart, inspiring me to see beyond my view of normalcy. I'm richer, fuller after taking in another culture. My paradigm of life and perspective is more encompassing with newly added wrinkles to explore.
