"Have any plans tonight?"
"Not really. Maybe we could get a Saturday night in. Is there anything on in the cinema?"
...pause..
"Oh look, 'The Raid' has opened. There's a late night showing that shouldn't be too crowded."
"The Raid?"
"Ultraviolent chopsocky action film. Fancy it?"
"God yes".
......
Later at the cinema
"2 for the raid please"
"OK. You do know it's in French don't you?"
"French?"
"Yes, all the showings are in French. I don't know why. The trailers have been in English. It's subtitled."
"Ok we can handle subtitles"

The Raid, it turns out, is in (most likely) Indonesian which is fair enough as it was made in Jakarta. "French" is shorthand for "foreign" in Vue-till-operator speak. But in fact it speaks the universal language of kung fu. Fantastic.
