Looking for Dutch movies?
Hi. I'm looking for some movies with spoken Dutch, preferably ones that haven't been dubbed with Dutch . Any suggestions? Bedankt
There is a website called wlext where they have Dutch series/movies with English subtitles.
Is there a certain type of movie that you like? Which services do you use?
Netflix has some Dutch movies here:
And there's a real oddball movie that I still loved called "Borgman" on Amazon Prime right now. It's about the friction between the classes in the Netherlands. At least I think that's what it was about. :)
You could also just Google "best Dutch movies" and hunt down the ones that seem interesting on Netflix, Amazon, etc.
If you have a Roku box, it has a search feature that lets you search for a movie, actor or director across several of their channels.
If you don't mind renting, I really enjoyed "Broken Circle Breakdown." I can't name another movie that has native Flemish speakers singing classic American bluegrass tunes so well. But if that idea does nothing for you, there's also the real story - a couple with significant religious and political differences trying to hold their marriage together during a family crisis. There seems to be a lot of strife caused these days by religious and political differences, so I'm sure many people can relate to this.
I'd think 'Michiel de Ruyter' (2015), with the English title 'Admiral', would be an excellent choice; a bit of a Game of Thrones-like movie about the Dutch naval legend admiral De Ruyter. It was the first and only time (so far) I've been impressed with a production of the Dutch film industry. It is mostly spoken in Dutch, with a few fragments in English and French.
If you want some typical Dutch comedy, I would definitely recommend the television series Rundfunk. You can find the entire first season with English subtitles here. Season 2 is currently running, English subs seem to be arriving with time. All videos are available without subs on the channel as well.
