My brother Iggy was born in Japan, so I have fond early childhood memories of tiny streets, neighborhood festivals, rice paddies, massive bowls of noodles, and movies.
If you can’t handle subtitles, I get it. If you can, please feel free to browse. Japan, Thailand, India, China and even Bhutan have some terrific films and often fabulous scenery. Quite a few have underlying Buddhist themes going on, too.
Favorite films so far :
The Good The Bad and the Weird (Korean 2008)
Night Train to Busan (Korean 2016)
Shall We Dance? (Japanese 1996)
Sweet Bean (Japanese 2015)
