Each film provides a rating, language and synopsis.

  • In Movie Mode, you can simply watch the movie. Choose your subtitles preference, or switch on Mango’s optional color mapping feature to see translations.
  • In Engage Mode, Mango breaks the movie down part-by-part. It includes scene preparation, slides with an overview of what’s going on in English and the other language; a list of words you may encounter; and cultural notes.
