but don't lose hope...perhaps admin will consider this in the future...l
well i think the acting is great, great story line, very real and emotional and any one can read along while watching a film its called multitasking

I think everyone is different. I happen to really enjoy foreign films and have no trouble following the story while reading the subtitles. In fact, I MUCH prefer subtitled foreign films to those that have been dubbed.

As for whether we'll ever have them here, only time will tell. I understand the higher demand for Hollywood movies - especially while they are building their film library.

I totally agree. I love subtitled foreign films and it's a nice way to practice my basic French or Italian

Default Foreign Films

Perhaps if enough people request it, they will consider some foreign films with English subtitles. There are a lot of good foreign films out there to choose from - at least the Oscar foreign film nominees might be of interest to some people. I was very surprised to discover it wasn't even a category. And the "Independent Film" category has no films - another disappointment. Hopefully as this site grows their film repertoire can grow as well to be more inclusive.

I think due to lack of audience, the moderator is not going for this facility. Majority of people are English speaking.
