As much as I love movies in English, there are just some foreign films to watch that I cannot pass up. Some people are opposed to foreign films because they feel you have to read the movie instead of watching it, but I personally love immersing myself in the culture of another country. Even though you can’t understand what the actors are saying, they can speak to you through the drama, humor, and action of these movies. So pop some popcorn and get ready to enjoy these top acclaimed foreign films to watch.
This adorable French romantic comedy is definitely one of the top foreign films to watch because of its imaginative look into the life of the shy waitress Amelie. After being alienated as a child, Amelie develops a vivid imagination, which she carries into adulthood as she attempts to bring happiness to the lives of others. This movie has won numerous awards, including Best Film at the European Movie awards, and was nominated for five Academy Awards.
