There are so manyforeign films that the great British public miss out on purely because people can't be bothered to read sub titles.
One of my favourite pictures is a Korean film called "Brotherhood". THis has the most amazing battle scenes, and also will tug at your heartstrings. I have lent my copy out a few times to friends, and every one of them has bought a copy.
Obviously not all the dialogue can be transferred to subtitles, but we don't miss anything, and sub titles are so much better than a dubbed film.
Two other film that immediately come to mind are "The Orphanage" and "Pans Labyinth", which are great slabs of movie making.
So many foreign films miss out here, and it's basically down to laziness as people say "I can't be bothered to read sub titles". It's such a great shame.
What other foreign films have touched people like myself?It would be interesting to know, especially as there are so many.
