Foreign Language Films

So the Oscars nomination list is out. The Oscars used to be a pretty big deal but its pull is getting lesser and lesser nowadays, but I doubt it will become a Miss Universe pageant thing.

Astro’s A-List channel actually has some pretty good titles coming up this first half year. Just have a look at a partial list of titles programmed for the coming few months:

  1. SON OF SAUL (Hungary)
  2. MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART (China)
  3. MUSTANG (France/Turkish)
  4. RAMS (Iceland)
  5. LABYRINTH OF LIES (Germany)
  6. THE HIGH SUN (Croatia)
  7. MASAAN (India)
  8. YOUTH (Italy)
  9. THE SECOND MOTHER (Brazil)
  10. LAMB (Ethiopia)
  11. JIA ZHANGKE, A GUY FROM FENYANG (Brazil/Mandarin)
  12. THE PRESIDENT (Georgia/France/UK/Germany)
  13. THE CLUB (Chile)
  14. BABAI (Kosovo)
  15. GOODNIGHT MOMMY (Austria)

And for South East Asian films:

  1. CEMETERY OF SPLENDOUR (Thailand)
  2. THE MISSING PICTURE (Cambodia)
  3. TAKLUB (The Philippines)
  4. NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY (The Philippines)
  5. DREAM LAND (Cambodia)
  6. FAERYVILLE (Singapore)
  7. A COPY OF MY MIND (Indonesia)
  8. WHAT WE DON’T TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT LOVE (Indonesia)
  9. VAKANSI YANG JANGGAL DAN PENYAKIT LAINNYA (Indonesia)
  10. SNAP (Thailand)

Film enthusiasts will  be able to enjoy these in the coming months.

And this is just a partial list of the titles and more great titles are getting added every month. And for only RM15.90 per month for 8 new films every month, it is a bloody good deal.
