Multilingual Talents

A list of actors and directors who have made films in at least three different languages.

List guidelines: The actors need to actually speak and understand the languages they use, not memorize the lines phonetically. Also, I'm assigning credit for between-film language-use, not for within-film language-use. So if English, German, and French are all spoken in the same movie I'm not giving credit for three languages; the actor or director must work mostly in English for one movie, French in another movie, and German in another movie, etc.

I haven't seen many of these films and I'm making some guesses about language-use from the IMDb info, so let me know if you spot mistakes. And I know there must be many more polyglot talents, so please leave suggestions!
