Movies always have the exceptional ability to portray the perception of every culture. Hollywood movies often dominate box offices and perception of cultures, but there are movies which don't and yet share exciting snippets about different parts of the world. Netflix has given us easy access to those films from around the globe.
With the advent of streaming services, people are now just a click away from exploring the vast variety of foreign films from all over.
