I just love movies! Lately, I’ve opened my horizon to watching international films that are worth watching. It’s very interesting to see the differences in humor, love, art etc on different cultures and what better way to experience it than to watch the movies they present.
If you don’t know about CinemaWorld yet, it is an international channel that offers mainstream programming that is fresh, unique and different. Different from the usual movies we see locally, in the US and UK. We get to see a whole lot more. It provides movie lovers a variety of titles which they cannot find anywhere else. All movies on CinemaWorld are shown in their original language with English subtitiles.
Did I mention that I’m currently studying French?
Well, it is great practice to watch a French movie in CinemaWorld, trust me!
For this December, it would be very exciting as they prepared remarkable movies highlighting stories of people from different walks of life, perfect to enjoy this holiday season.

In an odd twist of events, Piero temporarily sets his political loyalties and gender preference aside and sleeps with the gorgeous Adele, betraying his male partner, Remo in the process.

THE BEST THINGS IN THE WORLD
The Best Things In The World is poignant portrait of teen life through the journey of 15-year-old Mano, whose world is turned upside down because his parents are divorcing and his love interest is infatuated with someone else.
