Picture source: ent.sina According to "A foreign affair - International titles to look for in 2012" article made by Rob Boylan (Jan. 19, 2012), there are some movies to be highly expected to watch in theatres. The article says: "Cannes. Berlin. Venice. Toronto. New York. Busan. These are the stages where world film comes to life, where strange films with strange names become common knowledge. These are the films that slowly trickle into our market (or, more likely, on demand) through the course of the year, filling out the edges of our viewing habits." The film which as mentioned among others was "Wu Xia (Dragon)" (China).
Other movies are: The Girl (U.K.), I Wish (Japan), Now Is Good (U.K.), Bleak Night (South Korea), Scarlet Road (Australia), A Boy and His Samurai (Japan), Jiro Dreams of Sushi (Japan/USA), The We and the I (France) and The Story of Film (U.K.).
