So roughly translated... any film that isn't in your spoken language.
I know some people aren't fans of subtitled films but me, I love them. I think it's the fact that you have to make sure you concentrate so somehow you become more engrossed in the film, taking it all in - every last detail.
I had 2 films that immediately sprang to mind but I knew one of them would have been picked as it's a top movie on a lot of people's list - Pan's Labyrinth chosen by Vickie.
However, as it's a well known film I probably would have swayed towards the other film in the hope I could spread the knowledge of this film a little further...
Ne le dis à personne (Tell No One)
There's one reason I watched this movie - I'm a MASSIVE Harlan Coben fan, I have stack of his books. Harlan is an American author of thrillers and mystery novels and they are the type of books that twist and turn and leave you hanging at the end of every chapter so you just have to keep reading.
When I heard they were making a film based on one of his most famous books I was a bit skeptical, after all look what they did to Captain Correlli's Mandolin (I still have nightmares about how they managed to get the film SO wrong). But, I knew I would have to watch it.
I watched it with my husband who hasn't ever read a Harlan Coben book in his life.
We both LOVED it.
It's a French film directed by Guillaime Canet (the dude who played Etienne in the film The Beach - funnily enough a film that veers a little off track from the brilliant book) and it's been quoted so many times as being one of the best films of 2008. They changed the ending slightly, as they did with The Beach, but it worked. It's brilliant.
Basically the man in the lead role (Francois Cluzet, who looks a little like Dustin Hoffman) misses his wife who was brutally murdered years go - or so he thought. Then he gets an email showing her on CCTV alive.
As usual, I don't want to give too much away incase you want to watch the film (I suggest you do!) so this week I'm just going to tempt you with the trailer:
Even watching the trailer set my heart racing. I think I may have to watch it again tonight.
