American films are foriegn to everyone outside of America.
Technically it's true, but they became the norm in Europe and most of the world. I know several people in my country who disregard amazing Romanian movies just because of its "local trash", ie not Avengers or any other US blockbuster. The status of locally produced movies has fallen considerably in the last couple of decades, and I know that this is not the case only here but other parts of Europe as well.
So in a way, a local movie became a kind of foreign movie. Do I even make any sense? :))))
