Released in February 2022, The Privilege stars Max Schimmelpfennig as a nervous teenager, Finn, who investigates a mysterious fungus pill. Lea van Acken co-stars as the protagonist’s punk rock best friend, while Milena Tscharntke portrays a sick sibling with a secret to protect. The storyline follows Finn as he learns about a familial connection to an alleged gate to hell, and whether or not it has anything to do with a traumatic childhood experience. Composer Philipp Fabian Kölmel (Ruby Red) scored the 107-minute flick, which includes a couple of tunes that can be heard during the first 70 minutes. Here’s every song in the German Netflix film The Privilege.

  • “Somebody” by Uwe Adams (00:18:00): The Privilege soundtrack song scores a hospital sequence. Finn visits with his sick grandfather (Horst Janson). The characters discuss Samira Shirvani (Tijan Marei) and briefly talk about religious concepts. “Somebody” plays again at 00:34:00 during a dinner sequence (per Soundtracki) and again at 00:37:00 when Finn unsuccessfully tries to contact his friend Ramin, who has seemingly strangled himself with a cable.
  • “Wenn ich ein Vöglein wär” by Lise Risom Olsen (01:10:00): Martin Bergmann (Roman Knizka) looks at his sick daughter and states that he will call Dr. Steinke (Nadeshda Brennicke). Yvonne Bergmann (Lise Risom Olsen) sings a Norwegian lullaby for Sophie (Milena Tscharntke). The Privilege soundtrack song lasts about 30 seconds and fades during a transition sequence featuring Finn and Samira.
