With Netflix making moves on international markets, foreign-Language Netflix Originals have the quality reference that English Netflix Originals did a couple of years ago. AKA very good.
This applies to TV shows too. A great example is the Italian show Suburra, a thrilling depiction of modern-day Rome. Or Dogs of Berlin, an edgy story of the underworld of the German capital. And of course, Money Heist, one of the most compelling bank heist shows ever made.
And in non-Netflix Originals, the world is your oyster – literally. Not only do foreign movies remain little-seen in the U.S., but some of the best ones are available on Netflix. I’m talking Oscar-winning good (list below).
I leave you with our staff’s 18 highest rated foreign-language films currently streaming on Netflix. But again, beyond these movies – I really encourage you to try more foreign films. You will not be disappointed and you will have a much easier time finding what to watch.
