Dear all,

I am sure I am not the only one who enjoys watching films, shows and TV series in foreign languages and who thinks that such audiovisual resources help a lot when it comes to learning more about a certain culture, getting used to a certain accent, getting familiar with colloquial language, idioms and jokes, etc.

Why don't we try and make a list of the titles and names of those films, shows and series that we like, by language, so we can all enjoy them? Comedy, documentaries, TV shows, YouTube channels dealing with any topic are welcome! Also, if there is a completely legal way to watch them online, we could include a link to the content! Feel free to add more languages!
