If you’ve stayed in Williamsburg during Spring Break and decided not to look at another book until classes resume, why not catch up on watching some movies set in international locales?
What better way than settle into a good movie with your favorite snacks? Besides, it’s too cold to do anything outside.
Here are five Reves certified films that take place throughout the world.
1. Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick, 1975
An Irish rogue wins the heart of a rich widow and assumes her dead husband’s position in 18th Century aristocracy.
2. The Battle of Algiers, Gillo Pontecorvo, 1966
An account of the bloodiest revolution in modern history.
3. Rudo y Cursi, Carlos Cuaron, 2008
Two siblings rival each other inside the world of professional soccer.
4. The Harder They Come, Perry Henzell, 1972
Wishing to become a successful Reggae singer, a young Jamaican man finds himself tied to corrupt record producers and drug pushers.
5. 2046, Wong Kar-Wai, 2004
Opening in the year 2046, a man named Tak attempts to persuade a woman to travel back in time with him. The film soon shifts to the year 1966, where Chow Mo-wan, a struggling author, asks the woman he loves, Su Lizhen, to sail with him from Singapore to Hong Kong on Christmas Eve.
