You could do WAY worse than using "Microbes in Motion" from Wm. C Brown: this 
is in English obviously, but is a CD-ROM teaching multimedia experience that 
costs only US$35...and has upwards of 15 min of full sound movie included, 
1500-odd illustrations, and is on general microbiology including immunology, 
virology, bacteriology....judi at wcbc.com or 1-800-899-7850 & quote ISBN 
0-697-24596-9.  We were VERY impressed in our Department.
