Foreign film

Back | Home | Up


In English-speaking countries, a foreign film is usually one made in a language other than English.

In North America foreign film is often used instead of foreign language film, and isn't usually applied to British, Australian or other films made in English. Foreign films are generally shown in art houses that also show independent films and art films. Foreign films generally have only limited releases and modest grosses. Most are subtitled, which discourages some potential viewers. The differences in style and tone between foreign and domestic films also affects attendance. Some foreign films have wider releases and make a great deal of money. Recent examples include Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Amelie. The first foreign film to top the North American box office was Hero in the fall of 2004.
