A nagy füzet (The Notebook)

In sub-titles, this is not a film for those with a weak heart. Families collapse, children are abandoned, and only the smart kids survive.

Ida

If your family was killed in World War II, could you really recover to lead a normal life?

The Lunchbox

This is a tiny movie that reminds everyone that love is often found as a result of happy accidents.

Gloria

If you want to see a Spanish film set in Chile, go see Gael Garcia Bernal in the amusing historical drama, No (2012).

Wadjda

Rating: Wadjda is the first film by a female Saudi Arabian Director. The film dances with a twinkle in its eye, and it really should be seen. In English sub-titles.

Instructions Not Included

Rating: This is an enchanting film that is as funny as it is meaningful. Sure it is in Spanish, but that’s what Columbus spoke, wasn’t it?

The Grandmaster

Rating: A story reliving the majesty of martial-arts while looking at the tragedy that befell China both before and after the Japanese invasion from 1938 through 1945.

I’m So Excited

Rating: Almodovar’s film is about sex in all of its delightful permutations. No one in their right mind should want to see it, and the rest of you should.

Kon-Tiki (2012)

Rating: Yes, though Kon-Tiki is a foreign film, 90% of it is in English. Don’t ask me to explain.
