German films

In an effort to be supportive and encouraging, I've been getting German language movies from the library for my husband to watch. I googled "German language films" and, starting from the top of the wiki list, am reserving DVDs as available. The plot is irrelevant, it just has to be German language. Well, let me tell you, those Germans have some messed-up movies. Seriously. And the actors aren't exactly good looking. And they smoke, a lot.

As a result of all these movies, I woke up last night dreaming in German. And stressed about it. I remember thinking, "I need to wake myself up so I can stop with this German language stuff." Funny.

The "calls" for the May class have gone out. We didn't get a call, as expected. But if my hubby had the language points, we would have gotten a call. So I'll keep enduring those films. It's for the greater good.

Whatever you do, don't rent the Tin Drum. Good movie? Ummm, yes. Creepy. Definitely.

UGH! Talk about nightmares. German is such a tough language to learn. I wish him luck.

We recently saw Kebap Connection and I must say it's one of the best German language movies I have ever seen. You may enjoy it too.
