Are there any really good Spanish language movies out? Preferably Mexican Spanish.
Like Water for Chocolate (awesome), Under the Same Moon (Mexican and one of the best movies I've ever seen in any language), El Norte (a classic but much of it is Indian dialect), Mala Uva (very funny), Los 3 Cielos and The Perfect Crime. All are available on Netflix and many of them can be watched instantly if you connect your computer to your TV or get their box.
Oh, and Motorcycle Diaries if you can handle Ché being represented as something akin to Albert Schweitzer which he certainly wasn't by any stretch of the imagination.
I didn't like Y Yo Mama Tambíen too much but many people love it and it is Mexican. It is pretty graphic so keep that in mind if there are going to be children around.
¡ Hola !
Found the IMDB link for top 250 Spanish movies : http://www.imdb.es/chart/top
If you can handle very graphic violence, including dog-fighting scenes, check out "Amores Perros." Set in Mexíco, it shows a pretty hard world. It confirms stereotypes about mexican volence.
Anything by Pedro Almodovaris good...he's a director from Spain.
Heidita, I just clicked on the link you put in. I have seen that movie in English. I may have to try it out in Spanish. Thanks.
I just bought a spanish language movie today and it has english subtitles that you can not turn off. It also comes with french subtitles and while they are on you still see the english. The bad thing about it is that there are no spanish subtitles. By the way, the movie is called Sin Nombre.
How about a Bolivian movie? Very funny "Who killed the little white llama?" "Quien mató el llamita blanca" (or something like that) I know it can be found with English subtitles too.
Hi phil, did you know that in English all languages are actually capitalized?
(Please use the correct spelling)
The best movie ever:
Y tu mamá también is a good one, it's in Mexican Spanish.
You asked for Mexican Spanish movies in particular? I read about a film - maybe it was/is a documentary...(I have not seen it, just heard about it.) It takes place in Juarez; Mexico - 2004 Historias y Testigos. ¡Ni una muerta más!
I have recently bought a few spanish movies, volver was pretty good, but Maria Full of Grace is a bit better. Try these movies out.
Bajo la misma luna is a really good one, set in Mexico.
