7 Must watch Non-English Movies


Being someone who dies for watching good movies, I have watched a number of non-English movies. It has always been a thrilling experience to watch different social systems, mannerism, actors, styles, costumes and culture through these movies. Though it was very difficult to come up with few names, yet I narrowed down my choices and present you seven best and must-watch Non-English movies. Followed Format - Movie Title (Language)

A Separation (Persian): Sometimes simple storyline and cinematic treatment leave you speechless and that’s what happens in the case of A separation. A Separation won Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012 and become the first film from Iran to win the award. If mainstream cinema leaves you soulless, then there is no reason to escape this film.

Black Book (Dutch): A young Jewish woman in the Netherlands becomes a spy for the resistance during World War II, after losing her family in an encounter with the Nazis. A war movie has never been this much thrilling. You don’t want to miss a single minute of it. Thanks to the performance of leading lady - Carice van Houten who justified her character with full conviction and grace.

Burnt Money (Spanish): The romance language - Spanish picks up dark shades with Burnt Money. Despite capturing the life of a gay couple, the movie comes out as a cult picture. Passion, dilemma and failings of characters don’t lose grip. For sure, Burnt Money is a different sight of an action movie with a remarkable piece of acting.

best movies of all time

Lagaan (Hindi): India is a country where almost every movie is made musical. After watching Lagaan, you would certainly believe that music and dancing are strengths of Indian movies. Nominated in Oscar’s Best Foreign Language Film category, Lagaan revolves around the villagers who persuade the British officers to reduce the taxes because of poor agricultural production. Lagaan was ranked 55th in Empire magazines' "The 100 Best Films of World Cinema” list.

Malèna (Italian): Malèna is an Italian romantic drama film, starring gorgeous Monica Bellucci. On the day Italy enters the war; 12-year-old boy gets his first look at Malèna. This beautiful, but silent woman witnesses lustful eyes of men and the sharp tongues of the women. During the next few years, the boy watches Malèna suffering from loneliness, poverty, grief and humiliations.

Shutter (Thai): We all love horror movies, once in a while. When it comes to the horror genre, Thai films have no match in the world. Shutter inspired many ghost-themed movies from different nations and that’s what makes it a masterpiece. A feeling of mystery and dreadfulness surrounds you when you watch this film. Apart from brilliant cinematography, Shutter offers nail-biting suspense as expected.

The flower of war (Chinese): We know Chinese movies mostly for their martial art stunts. But, this film represents entirely different world of China. With capturing the tragedy of war, telling bravery of prostitutes and portraying some wonderful characters, this sensitive war movie becomes best among countless Chinese motion pictures. The flower of war was China’s official entry to Oscar in Best Foreign Language Film category.
