A Great Movie

Do you watch foreign films? Some people can't get past the subtitles. I have no problem with them.

I recently watched a movie on Nitflix that has now been added to my list of all time favorite films. It is a Swedish film, with some English speaking and singing. It is emotional, real, down to earth, with great acting. 

The name of the movie is As It Is In Heaven. 

Let me know if you have already seen it. I am not going to attempt to tell the story, which is more complicated than the description on Netflix.

It's been a while since I've watched anything with subtitles. My eyes can't take it since we lost our 60" TV and I'm too cheap to get another one, as long as the old console is still working.

I'm a volunteer at our local art film movie house.... they show just 2 films per month. I take tickets and make the popcorn etc. And I see the films free! I've seen some great ones, mostly with subtitles. I'll watch out for this one.

A very Happy New Year to you, CiCi.

Haven't heard of it or seen it. But I've got a Netflix account, so I'll put it on my list of must-sees. Thanks for the tip!

Not familiar with this one, but I do enjoy non-Hollywood type films.

I'm going to put this movie in my queue as soon as I leave here. I watch subtitles all the time. I kind of moan about it, but once I get going, I forget I'm reading them! Thanks for the recommendation.

The Swedes do some great stuff - they are very good at "grim". I haven't seen this but will look out for it!

Love foreign films if they are not the violent kind. Thanks for this suggestion.
