German Chick Flicks

I'm curios what German Movies/ shows anyone recommends. I need to watch a few good ones, if anyone has any suggestions comment below

November 29, 2018



Hmmm ... maybe "Schokolade im Sommer" or "Der Zauber des Regenbogens" or "Wohin der Weg mich Führt"? I've seen all three of those all the way through (compared to some others I didn't bother to finish). You can find them on YouTube. The subtitles are auto-generated on these three movies and have some issues, but patience and perseverance will help you figure out what they're talking about.

A good not-a-chick flick type movie I've watched more recently would be "Flug in Gefahr" ... for me, that one is more interesting (but I'm a guy, so my opinion is probably biased).

One other note - you might also check out "Deutsch Lernen Extr@" ... that might be interesting for you as well, and the German is easier also. It's sort of like "Friends".

... ok, one other additional note. Maybe you might look at "Das Salzprinzessin" or "Die Zertanzten Schuhe" or "Der Schweinehirt" or any other the others that have been on the ARD Kinder web page over the past few years ...


chocolate in summer…… interesting


If you're specifically looking for chick flicks, I can recommend "Schlussmacher," which is about a guy whose job is to break up couples (meaning, if you don't want to break up with your partner yourself, you can hire someone from this "separation agency" to do it for you). It's been awhile since I saw it, but I remember it being pretty funny. There's more information about it here: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1978524/


I liked "Lila, Lila", about a guy who finds a manuscript in an old desk and to impress his girlfriend he tells her he wrote it. Many complications ensue.


Could you narrow down the genre? Crime, romance, comedy? Maybe something trending? Then you could like Babylon Berlin.


I don't have chick flick recommendations for you (Verliebt in Berlin, a telenovela might be one) but I will recommend two shows and one movie to you :) Look them up on youtube!

Short show with popular actor: You Are Wanted

The German version of "The Office" is called: Stromberg

and "Der Schuh des Manitu", one of my favorite German movies!

Let me know what you think!


Dark. Its a 10 episode german netflix series


Babylon Berlin!!!


I recommend “Ach du lieber Harry“. It’s a 1981 German comedy. I thought the language wasn’t difficult.
