If you want to see spectacular special effects watch and American movie, but if you want a story, a plot, a movie of yesteryear then you should watch French.
My husband and I are drawn to foreign movies for so many reasons:
- They’re free of Hollywood assholes that seem to monopolize bored people’s lives.
- The story line is so much more interesting.
- It’s just not the same old sh**.
I speak 5 languages but mon mari speaks one – English – and he’s never been put-off by subtitles. It’s something you get accustomed to – it becomes an art to watching movies.
I’ve seen so many but you be the judge.
