5 International Romcoms You Should Watch on CinemaWorld

June 20, 2019 02:06 PM

See love's best triumphs and worst fumbles every Monday night at 9:00PM with CinemaWorld's Romancing Mondays.

Exhausted your go-to list of Hollywood and local romcoms? Or maybe you’re looking for something new – maybe a romcom without Cameron Diaz in it (they’re great fun, until you’ve watched them 50 times a month), or a movie without secret agents or massive explosions. Whatever your reasons may be, you won’t regret diving into these international romcoms on CinemaWorld.

Carefully curated from some of the world’s best made, and critically-acclaimed pool of films – as most CinemaWorld movies are – these romcoms will feature different cultures, with each their own nuances to the idea of love and romance. They'll also most probably show less familiar faces, and be in foreign languages. But all the same, these films will make you laugh and cry, and touch your heart in the way the best romantic comedies do.

From the universally awe-inspiring idea of love’s super ability to overcome life’s most difficult situations, to the even more universally relatable fact that love often puts people in plenty of awkward situations and embarrassing fumbles  – you’ll find these love stories aren’t as foreign as they sound.

Refresh your romcom list, and fall in love with new faces and nuances of love with CinemaWorld’s Romancing Mondays. Catch them every Monday night at 9:00PM, for an all-around fun movie session.
