Thankful for World Cinema

Class Enemy (2013, Courtesy of Triglav Film)

In the first year I did this theme I tried to limit it to the so-called Old World, but that was on the site that must not be named. However, that proved too limiting and I expanded it to included any non-US productions in the years since. Almost always they are films with all or a majority of the dialogue in something other than English. This theme runs annually from November 1st until the date upon which Thanksgiving happens to fall. Below you will find links to previously featured films.
