10 great most-watched non-English Netflix Original movies of all time (FULL RANKED LIST) – have you seen them yet?

Netflix has time and again dominated the Originals space with its movies and shows over the past few years as the streaming giant continues to juggernaut its way with fresh new content every day for its subscribers around the world. These Originals are either released as limited series or movies, and the results have been nothing short of spectacular.

Although a majority of the Netflix Original movies that come out are made in America, non-English films and TV series have been taking the world by storm of late as witnessed in recent times. These movies pave the way for an introduction to other cultures around the globe, new film-making styles and stories, and a cinematic experience unlike what Hollywood dishes out.

Every Tuesday, the “Top 10 on Netflix” gets updated by the streamer for the original and licensed titles based on the hours viewed by subscribers on the platform from Monday to Sunday in the previous week. Netflix says, “… we provide a list of the Top 10 most popular Netflix films and TV overall (branded Netflix in any country) in each of the four categories based on the hours that each title was viewed during its first 28 days. Since some titles have multiple premiere dates, whether weekly or in parts, we count the 28 days from each episode premiere date in each country.“
