Must-See Movies in Spanish and Argentine Film Recommendations

As everyone here in Buenos Aires is getting excited for BAFICI 2014 (Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente de Buenos Aires), the most important film festival in Argentina, it got us in the mood for some good movies too and we came across this great infograph which we’d like to share with you.

This infograph shows the best movie (according to their ratings on IMDB) of every Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking country in Latin America, except for El Salvador. Representing Argentina we have “El Secreto de Sus Ojos” (The Secret in Their Eyes), directed by Juan José Campanella. This movie has won many film awards including an Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2010. While this might not be the best nor easiest movie to practice your Spanish with, it is definitely a must watch!
