Songs and Movies in different languages.

Hey guys, I've recently been getting really into songs and movies in French.

I am looking for songs and movies in Dutch, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Hungarian, Chinese and Japanese.

(any other languages are welcome too, I want to broaden my knowledge)

I prefer indie/slow/acoustic music (but I'll listen to pretty much anything else) I prefer horror/indie/romantic movies (but again I'll watch anything)

Let me know some of your favourite songs/movies :)

Amélie is a very good French romantic-comedy movie. I personally find the movie soundtrack to be amazing as well!

Pretty sure it's on Netflix, but don't quote me on that. Hopefully you can watch it!


Thank you so much ^^ :) Ill check it out, Ive been meaning to watch it for some time :)


There's several language options on most major films and series on Netflix


Brazilian bossa nova probably fits the description of slow/acoustic. The stand out Portuguese bossa nova song for me is Aguas de Março by Elis and Tom.

French - Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg.

Spanish - [two very different styles] Ramon Ayala and Laura Pausini


My favorite Japanese movie (and favorite movie in general) is 君の名は (Kimi no Na wa), or Your Name in English. It's the second-largest grossing domestic film in Japan, behind Spirited Away. It's been nominated for and won numerous accolades and is just an amazing movie with a beautiful story.

My favorite Japanese songs are actually from 君の名は. The songs for the movie were composed and sung by the band RADWIMPS, and they're great. The four songs from the movie are Dream Lantern/Yume Tourou, Zenzenzense, Sparkle, and Nandemonaiya.


Oh I like kimi no na wa!!!


Hungarian songs: I put "magyar dalok" in the Youtube search, I found several playlists.

Look at this one, for example. Very long playlist, half of it are older songs.

ooh, thank you ill check it out.


It isn't a movie but I'm in love with a show called Man to Man. Its a Korean drama.


K Drana is awesome! I love it and turned my parents into addicts. Now my 80-year-old, non Asian parents watch 1-2 episodes of some series every day...


I have been meaning to watch it, but I've never go round to it, but i will watch it soon.


Here are some Songs that I like!!

Mitt Lille Land- Norwegian

Adieu- French

Disney songs!!! (these almost always have different versions for tons of langauges!!)

sorry the list was kind of short, but I can't really think of any others!


I LOVE DISNEY SONGS in other languages- I've watched beauty and the beast in French today it was too good ^^


For the celebration of my 100 days in duolingo, I ended up making a playlist with songs in the languages I was learning at that moment (plus some specials), and that includes the languages listed here. (except Hungarian but that was a latter addition.)

So, I hope you enjoy it!: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25033280
