A thread to make a note of foreign language subtitled gems you’ve chanced upon on Netflix.

Chalay Thay Saath Really gentle romance / cultures collide road trip travelogue in Urdu and Chinese. The scenery and cinematography is stunning - set in the far north of Pakistan on the border with China. There’s drama, warmth, heart, music. The colours are super-saturated, which works well with the austere mountain backdrops. A wonderful escape from real life for a couple of hours. star

Let’s be having yours!

Sounds awesome!

I haven't explored much of Netflix yet really but I do like Rita. Not quite as classy as your find though OP grin

Dukhtar - Pakistani film, I think it won at the Toronto film festival a few years ago. A man wants to marry off his ten year old daughter (ten!!!), her mother can't bear to see history repeat itself and they escape.

Next to watch is a Chinese film, I am not Madame bovary - ex wife gets revenge....

Nowt classy about me. Romcoms and sci-fi are my go-to chill out genres & I’ve exhausted all the acceptably-tolerable-quality English language output, so I’m now branching out. DS2 (10) took the lead as there’s not enough quality PG/12 content - he watches the first 10 mins of subtitled films & sticks with it if good, or finds something else if not. We’ve found some great stuff that way. smile

Lighthouse of the Orcas (Patagonia) is such a beautiful film.

We also watched an amazing Indian film about mixed up tiffin tins delivered by the dabbawallas in Mumbai which leads to an unconventional relationship of kindred spirits - I think it was called The Lunch Box.
