Film & Book Reviews


One of the easiest ways to immerse yourself in some different culture is of course to watch films or read books set in different countries. Whether they’re historical, address important issues in that country or they’re simply a dreamy account of a different place I’ll be trying to read/watch a few in preparation for my travels and give my thoughts on them and the impression they give of the country where they’re set. My current list is below; if you have any suggestions feel free to let me know!
