Indian Cinema has made us proud by making some masterpieces, but what about foreign movies? There are many foreign movies that are based on a brilliant script, and that can make you take a while to get past the feel they offer. A few of the foreign movies have not just stolen the hearts of the audience in the respective country but has also has stolen the hearts of Indians across the world. I’m sure you all have your favourite ones, and so do I. Here is the list of five movies (which by the way was damn difficult to choose).

About the Movie: This trilogy itself is amazing but “Before Sunrise’ will always remain my favourite in the trilogy as it was the first part. This movie is a beautiful story of an American Man and a European girl and how they met on the train to Europe. On the last day in Vienna, he decides to spend the day with her. Though they both know that this would be the only night together, they still choose to be together for the particular day and hence the movie was titled ‘Before Sunrise’.

Stars: Audrey Tautou, Samuel Le Bihan, Isabelle Carré
Release Year: 2002
About the movie: It is a French origin film known as À la folie… pas du tout. France is famous for its romance and so is this movie. But this movie has added spice to it as well, by making it a romantic thriller. This movie is about a married man and his life. A young woman falls in love with this married man who is a doctor by profession. The story becomes a little dangerous when his girlfriend forces him to leave his wife. The situation obviously becomes clearer, when you see the story from his point of view.
The Classic (Keulraesik)
Director: Jae-young Kwak
Writer: Jae-young Kwak
Stars: Ye-jin Son, In-sung Jo, Seung-woo Cho
Release Year: 2003
About the movie: Korean movies have stolen my heart from the time I have started watching them. They have this pure romance and innocence that makes us all fall in love with the story. The Classic (Keulraesik in Korea) sure is one of my most favourite of the lot. The Classic is a story about a young boy who is in college. One day he gets his hands on his mother’s diary and discovers a lot of secrets. He finds out about the romantic love triangle between his Mother, Father and their best friend. I would highly recommend you to watch this movie if you haven’t as yet.
