You Might Have Missed These 10 Great Foreign Films From 2021 ...

Hollywood may be regarded as the world's largest film factory, but many wonderful films come from other countries every year. These films are important because they don't get the same coverage as their Hollywood counterparts.

Although we are nearing the end of the year 2022, it's important to highlight the many international films we received last year, whether it's because foreign films sometimes have delayed release dates in more populated countries, discovering something new and unconventional compared to the standard Hollywood blockbuster, or simply recognizing the cinema from different regions around the world.

'7 Prisoners' Brazil

7 Prisoners is a moving film that chronicles a group of boys who are slain for human trafficking and forced labor. The story follows a boy named Mateus (Christian Malheiros) as he attempts to escape his captors.

As we watch these characters fight for their lives and question their morals in order to escape this horrifying situation, the film is a moving one that expresses an important topic.

'Drive My Car' Japan

Drive My Car is a real methodical moving experience, winning the Oscar for Best International Feature for its expertly crafted journey. The film tells the simple yet powerful story of a famous stage director who takes on the task of directing a new stage production in order to cope with the death of his wife two years prior.

Despite the length of the film, it is entirely justified because it is a great character study, examining the interaction between the two protagonists.

'A Hero' Iran

Asghar Farhadi's latest film is A Hero, which includes films like The Salesman and A Separation. This film chronicles a man who tries to resolve his financial difficulties within his two-day release from prison. However, things go wrong.

It's a moving film, packed with personality. We sympathize with the characters in the film and witness their difficult emotional journey to escape their tragic situation.

'Titane' France

Titane is a highly sloppy-up film that features many horrific and mind-bending sequences. This film has a reputation for being one of the most messed up films from 2021, and that is without doubt the experience you will have when watching it. The plot is absurd and unconventional, yet nonetheless profound in its own peculiar way.

Despite being presented as a horrific, spiraling mystery, Titane is a film worth watching for anyone who loves interpretation, subtext, and unconventional horror. You know a film is fantastic when it has a deranged reputation and is a Palme d'Or winner.

'Compartment nom.6' Finland

Compartment Nom.6 is a simple yet powerful tale about two strangers, a Finnish student and a quiet Russian miner, who have to share a cramped compartment on a train going from Moscow to the Arctic Circle.

Before Sunrise is a remake of the 2020s, highlighting the qualities of two strangers who meet on a train and begin to form a personal connection. Compartment nom.6 is an exceptional job at making its actors memorable and relatable. It encapsulates the human experience.

'A Cop Movie' Mexico

A Cop Movie, as the title implies, is a documentary about police officers, but it also examines the corruption within the police force through the experience of two officers. It is a very experimental documentary that blurs the lines between fiction and reality.

This film is by Director Alonso Ruizpalacios, who has experimented with many genre subversions within his films. Museo completely reconstructs the heist genre, and A Cop Movie entirely reconstructs documentaries. It's a fantastic film that combines visual and fictional storytelling by expressing real-life events and issues.

'Hive' Kosovo

Blerta Basholli's directorial debut is exceptional: Hive explores a woman whose husband is gone in a conflict and her struggle to support her family as well as the backlash over subverting societal expectations.

The film is a fantastic exercise in exploring how different communities perceive typical gender roles and the unfortunate danger of breaking established social expectations.

'The Worst Person in the World' Norway

The Worst Person in the World is one of the most popular international films of 2021, and for good reason. It chronicles a young lady named Julie's struggles with finding love, employment, and a sense of belonging within the world.

It's an easy film to immerse yourself in, with great actors, editing, and storytelling. The film touches on some truly significant aspects of life. It's relatable and profound; many people can find themselves connecting with it, whether it's reminiscing about that moment in their life or experiencing it.

'Intregalde' Romania

Intregalde is a very tense and gruesome film that isn't going to be a pleasant viewing for everybody. However, when they try to assist a disoriented local find his place, things begin to take a turn for the worse.

The film is an incredible atmospheric experience with a great emphasis on its setting and character. A lot of the film's conflict has to do with the character dynamics as well as the weather and environment, and it exploits its location exceptionally well to create tension.

'One for the Road' Thailand

One for the Road is a buddy-road drama in the same vein as Drive My Care (although One for the Road was released before Drive My Car). It has a similar aesthetic and setting, but it is quite different in terms of the narrative being told. One character suffers terminal lung cancer and wants to make amends with his previous relationships.

It's a heartfelt road trip film that starts with a familiar premise but blossoms into something far more personal and engaging from the start.
