Last week, I mentioned discovering the YouTube and Librarians (Movies) channel. Although I don’t focus on foreign language films on this blog, I do have a list of those that feature reel librarians, adding to it whenever possible. From this YouTube channel, I have added several more titles to the Foreign Films list, including the award-winning Filipino film, In My Life (2009). Check out the full trailer (over 4 minutes long!) below:
Even if you don’t understand the words — the film’s languages include Filipino and Tagalog, along with some English — the plotline seems pretty easy to follow! I’ve run out of fingers counting the reel librarian stereotypes… which ones are your faves? 😉
Mine might be the glasses-on-a-lanyard look as she throws some canoodling students out of the library.
You can read a review of the film here.

Wow, I haven’t even watched this movie myself though it’s a Filipino film. haha.
If you ever do watch it, let me know how it turns out! I’ve read the lead actress is quite well-known. 🙂
