It’s been a while since we updated you all with our latest inductees to the World Cinema Club, so here’s what you might have missed. And, we really recommend you hunt down these foreign language gems if you can.
We’ve reviewed two foreign language films recently which were released in the UK in 2016 (although they have been around in other countries for a while now). First up, is ‘Victoria’, a German film which is a one-take masterpiece, and so much more. This crime-drama is beautifully shot and wonderfully acted, and a genuine must-see. We also highly recommend Turkish flick ‘Mustang’, a drama about the oppression of young girls in a patriarchal society. Both harrowing and inspiring in equal measure, this is a strong, feminist film that you simply can’t ignore.
So, please take a look at these films if you can track them down, and let us know what you think. Hopefully our World Cinema Club recommendations can cure widespread subtitle phobias one day.
