Pop Culture Imports: ‘After the Storm,’ Live-Action ‘Bleach,’ A Sugary Sweet Bollywood Rom-Com, and More
Posted on Friday, September 21st, 2018 by Hoai-Tran Bui
(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best, wackiest, and weirdest foreign-language movies and TV shows streaming right now.)
Film festival season is in full swing, but so is extreme weather — which makes it the perfect time to throw on some foreign films. What better thing to do when weathering autumn storms than to watch Hirokazu Kore-eda‘s After the Storm, just as the Japanese auteur scores another festival circuit hit with his new film Shoplifters? On the other hand, if you’re looking for fluffier fare, there’s also a You’ve Got Mail-inspired Bollywood rom-com, a live-action adaptation of the popular fantasy anime Bleach, and a South African body-swapping comedy.
So, get over the film festival envy and turn on those subtitles.
