No-English Moviember – The Lunchbox

lunchbox2Well, it’s over then. Yes my adoring readership, No-English Moviember for 2015 has come to a close. Please wipe away your tears, I know how heart rending this is. But fear not, for although we are at the end, we still have one last film to go and, as I sit here typing with the blustering winds outside, I shall transport you to sunnier climes with Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox.

A Very Special No-English Moviember Announcement

Hello there! I hope you are all doing wonderfully with whatever you’re doing and that you have been in awe of my productive output as of late. I mean two parts in as many weeks! And this is technicallt my third! God, I’m on a role! Reminds me of the good old days when I posted regular. You remember those days? All the way back in 2014? We were so stupid back then, when we were marginally younger. Ah, such sweet memories.

No-English Moviember – Good Bye, Lenin!

So here we are, the end of No-English Moviember. I hope you’ve enjoyed our international journey as much as I have. We’ve had some great films, some of my own choice and some by the choice of brilliant bloggers. I’m almost embarrassed to admit it but, without those suggestions, I think this month may not have been as good as it has been.

The Animation Commendation’s Danish film Jagten and Writer Loves MoviesIntouchables have really helped me build the standard of this month and introduced me to movies I, in all likelihood, would never heard or seen at all. But that’s what this month has been about, getting deserved exposure to non-English films we may never have seen otherwise. So, again thank you.
