I don’t know why we call them foreign films instead of foreign movies. Watch something foreign and all of a sudden you feel like you have the right to be fancy. I think I watched a French porn once. I was young and we didn’t have cable. I was up late and and flipping through the fuzzy UHF channels frantically adjusting the rabbit ears. I’m sure the volume was down low so I didn’t get caught. It was probably so fuzzy you could barely see an elbow but I was dedicated to my language development none the less.
I made sure I didn’t choose a French film for tonight because I understand too much of it that I wouldn’t have needed to read the subtitles. I expected the movie to be boring and probably make me fall asleep. Maybe I was just looking for an excuse to have an evening nap. I picked a Spanish film (fancy!) called Una Noche. Sometimes the narrow white font was a bit hard to read and when I paused it the Netflix bar was directly over the words which was frustrating but it was really good. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will probably give foreign films a second go on account of how good this was one.
