10 Best Foreign Films Streaming on Netflix

Wondering what the Best Foreign Films Streaming on Netflix are? I’ve compiled a list of 10 best foreign-language films currently streaming on Netflix. I don’t remember Tom Cruise being a part of my childhood, but Amitabh Bachchan, Bruce Lee, and James Bond (Sean Connery). Those three I can pick out of a lineup. My family grew up watching a fair amount of foreign films, mostly Bollywood movies, and hong kong action movies, hence my obsession with Amitabh Bachchan and other foreign-language films. I believe it was Gwyneth Paltrow that said a few years ago that she only allows her kids to watch French or Spanish station because it helps them understand the language better.  If you don’t mind reading subtitles, here are 10 Best Foreign Films Streaming on Netflix
