Finding a Mandarin Chinese movie to watch outside of China used to be close to impossible. Not anymore if you have a Netflix subscription! Starting this year, I am pleased to find out that Netflix has made more and more great movies available in Chinese. You may even turn on Chinese subtitles for added Chinese exposure, or English subtitles to enable a English-speaking crowd to enjoy the movie together!
Searching for the right Netflix movies or shows that have Chinese audio is, however, not all that easy. We have done the search for you so you don't have to.
Here are 10 of our favorite Christmas movies that feature Mandarin Chinese audio and subtitles!
Please note: These wonderful picks will require an active Netflix subscription.
