We built Flicks-Now so we could find the movies we wanted to watch on the Netflix instant site. In the past few weeks I have found and watched a series of great Spanish language films.
Butterfly: A great Spanish (sub-titled) film about the relationship between a boy and his teacher during the Spanish civil war.
The Method: Recruitment interview from heaven and hell – 5 Stars. Also Spanish – set in stylish modern day Madrid. The interview becomes a tense contest pitting the seven, or are there only six, applicants against one another.
Arcibel’s Game: An Argentinian film about a journalist whose article about chess gets him jailed as a political prisoner — for life !
and last night:
Sex and Lucia: Tales intertwined with the love life of a Madrid watress. One of the most sexually charged films I have ever see. The plot was confusing but with its hot steamy themes and beautiful people this films keeps moving. Directed by Julio Medem, who also directed ‘Lovers Of The Artic Circle’ .. also available with this Flicks-Now search … another restless Latin love story.
Mi Mejor Enemigo: I found this gem using this Flicks-Now search. At the outbreak of the war between Argentina and Chile a group of Chilean soldiers are sent into the wilds of Patagonia to defend a very lonely border. They become lost, adopt a dog when they encounter six Argentinean soldiers everyone digs in — twelve tense soldiers in two trenches facing one another — otherwise alone and lost on the vast and empty plain. The Chilean’s stray dog is soon running between the two trenches. Don’t miss this one.
