i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif I have just ordered on Ebay this 2005 Japanese movie which has Hayley singing Wiegenlied in the Soundtrack. It cost me US $26 (NZ $43) which was cheaper than buying it in Japan (around NZ $60).
Moderators do you think it would be a good idea to add a new topic called Movies in the CD and DVD section as it would make it easier to find out about any movies that Hayley sings in. Next year Hayley will be in the airline movie. Other movies I have of Hayley are Mulan 2, Lilo & Stitch 2.
After some discussion, we have decided that a separate section for movies could cause some confusion, particularly as Hayley is primarily a singer. I've now moved this thread to the 'Wiegenlied' sub-board, as this is the song that Hayley sings in 'Lorelei'.

This is a Japanese movie (but with English subtitles except for the Americans who speak English) set at the end of World war 2. A top secret submarine from Germany (I507) is sent to Japan. It has a girl (called a witch) which can sense ships up to 120 miles away on board. Their mission is to try and stop a third atomic bomb being dropped on Tokyo. At the start of the movie you can hear Hayley vocalizing for a short while and through the movie there is the odd time you can hear her. The girl likes to sing and at one stage she sings a bit of the Japanese version of Wiegenlied ( of course it is in Hayley's voice). In the credits Hayley sings Wiegenlied for about 30 seconds. I also saw Hayley's name in the credits.
I really enjoyed this movie. It was very well made. Then again I do like war movies.
Hi Ross and Everyone, I managed to get one of these recently for next to nothing on Ebay i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif I have just enjoyed seeing it ( with English subtitles ) I thought it was a good film BUT more to the point it has made me appreciate more the soundtrack from Hayley's perspective.
Her part is really a key to the film !
I will not spoil it for anyone else; but I hope more will be able to find out for themselves !
Watched my copy of Lorelei tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it didn't get a particularly good write up at Beyond Hollywood. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes a decent war movie.
Hayley's haunting vocals fitted in exquisitely with the soundtrack and gave Paula (the witch) the appropriate air of mystery. I will correct one thing that Ross posted earlier, which is that Hayley (surprisingly - although I-507 is a German creation) sings Weigenleid in German, not Japanese.
