10 Favorite Spanish-Language Films

10 Great Spanish-language Films

Below are ten of my favorite Spanish-language films from all over the Spanish-speaking world and a link to their description. Directors include some of the greats, like Guillermo del Toro, Pedro Almoldóvar, and Álex de la Iglesia. Several films take place during an important historic time frame (like Pan's Labyrinth during the Spanish Civil War) or provide a modern critique on their society (9 Reinas, Amores Perros, Maria Full of Grace). Several are slightly scandalous (Y tu mamá también), but all provide entertainment and an interesting insight into the time period and culture in which they were made.

  1. 9 Reinas
  2. Valentín
  3. Volver
  4. Pan's Labyrinth
  5. The Sea Inside
  6. El Orfanato
  7. El Crimen Ferpecto
  8. Maria Full of Grace
  9. Amores Perros
  10. Y tu mamá también
