Your Favourite Foreign Language Films from 2013

Monsoon Wedding by female director Mira Nair was a major success in India. It shows the preparation of a huge wedding party by the Punjabi community in New Dehli. Storylines around the bride (Vasundhara Das), her family members and the servants are romantic, comical or painfully dramatic. There are beautiful images of cultural traditions and of the monsoon rain. There's some English in it, but the main language is Hindi.

Das Experiment by Oliver Hirtschbiegel was inspired by a real social experiment in Stanford Prison in 1971. Volunteers were divided into guards and prisoners, and were asked to spend a number of days in jail. Moritz Bleibtreu plays an undercover journalist with a hidden camera in his glasses who becomes one of the prisoners. What starts as an innocent experiment soon gets out of hand, with the guards taking their dominant role all too seriously and the prisoners rebelling.
