Love is in the air? There’s no shortage of romantic content on streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu. The language of romance is Spanish, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world.
Here is a list of the best Spanish romantic movies –
1. Broken Embraces (Los Abrazos Rotos)
Pedro Almodóvar is the director and Penélope Cruz is the star of this 2009 film.
More than 40 awards have been nominated for the film, including a Golden Globe.
Lena, played by Cruz, is a woman who longs to leave her humdrum office job and an occasional stint as a prostitute behind her. There are ties linked to becoming a celebrity.
To please her boss and investor, Lena must deny her feelings for a man and instead submit to their suffocating expectations.
Be ready for unexpected twists and side stories that all come together in the end. You can’t go wrong with this ’90s romantic Spanish film.
What specifically makes it so unlikely is it? despite the romantic overtones, it is based on a virus that is spread through sexual contact. Dylan, now twenty-one years old and deeply in love, receives the news that he has chlamydia.
He is advised to contact all of his (read: many) sexual encounters, which Dylan gladly complies with. After reading this synopsis and learning that the show’s original title when it debuted on British television was “Scrotal Recall,” you have every right to turn away from the screen.
Lovesick is a film that has earned a terrible rap because of its previous moniker, but it is actually a picture that is humorous, wonderful, and tremendously romantic.
Dylan is accompanied on his first day of school by “Luke,” a business school type who appears confident but is actually insecure, and “Evie,” Dylan’s best friend, who is played by Antonia Thomas from the show “Misfits.” It soon becomes clear that if Evie and Dylan’s timelines were to coincide, they might develop into something more than just friends.
Lovesick is a charming miniseries that focuses on the tragic romance of past relationships that were not successful. Because of this, it is possible to view a significant number of episodes in a single session.
3.Ocho Apellidos Vascos (Spanish Affair)
On March 14, 2014, Ocho Apellidos Vascos made its debut in Spain with a premiere performance. It had its first run in theatres for six weeks before becoming Spain’s second-biggest box office triumph, coming in second only to Avatar in terms of overall income collected.
This movie is perfect for you if you’re searching for a lighthearted romantic comedy with a few laughs thrown in here and there. Clara Lago, Dani Rovira, and Carmen Machi are among the actors who appear in the film, which was directed by Emilio Martnez-Lázaro.
Marseille, France’s capital city of crime, is the backdrop for a gritty and realistic thriller.
Zachary’s mother abandoned him when he is released from Juvenile Prison. He connects with a young sex worker named Shéhérazade, with whom he feels a connection.
In the context of this plot, Shéhérazade appears to be a difficult film to watch, but in reality, it’s more like a romance and a crime thriller at the same time. The tale and the relationship between the two main characters ring true to life.
Even more so, the film is fascinating and thought-provoking rather than depressing since it doesn’t try to emotionally manipulate you.
Great writing, terrific performances by newcomers, and superb direction create the impression that Shéhérazade will go down in cinematic history as a modern classic. City of God fans will be blown away by this.
5. Una Noche (One Night)
Havana, the capital city of Cuba, is home to appalling levels of poverty. Ral yearns, deep down, to spend some time in Miami. Following the accusations that he assaulted a tourist, he makes the decision to leave the area. Elio, Raul’s best friend, is willing to travel to Miami with Raul and assist him.
Elio is torn between looking out for his twin sister, Lila, and providing assistance to Ral on his flight. In the end, the main characters are released from their captivity aboard an inflatable raft made out of old car tires.
If you are interested in learning more about the people and culture of Havana, you should watch this riveting film. You will have the ability to inhale and experience Havana as if you were truly there.
The events of Una Noche are loosely based on a true story, but the details have been embellished for dramatic effect.
6. The Spanish Apartment (L’Auberge Espagnole)
This bilingual (French and Spanish) comedy-drama was made available to the public in 2012. The film is directed by Cedric Klapisch and stars Romain Duris, Judith Godreche, and Kelly Rilley. Cedric Klapisch is also the cinematographer for the project.
A graduate student in economics who decides to spend his final year of school in Barcelona, Spain, to finish his degree is the protagonist of this movie. In the student housing that he shares with other students of the same age, there is a community of young people who hail from a variety of countries and regions across Western Europe.
As they work through the difficulties that come with their cultural and language backgrounds, the roommates build a bond that is truly their own.
This is a wonderful alternative for those people who wish to understand the realities of cultural disputes and how people adjust to new settings.
In the end, “Roma” portrays the story of the socioeconomic divides that exist within Mexican culture. This section makes a passing reference to racism and the pervasiveness of the ideology in Mexico during the 1970s.
Black and white photography was used throughout the production, which was directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who is best known for directing “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”
Cleo, the housekeeper in “Roma,” is hardworking and kind, but she is constantly reminded of her low social standing and the wealth of the family she works for. Despite this, she continues to do her job well.
The story focuses on how the pregnancy affects the family in the background of growing political tensions and ideological movements in Mexico. These events are set against the backdrop of the narrative.
This DVD will teach you several typical idioms and slang phrases used in Mexican culture. A small amount of the indigenous Mixtec language, which is spoken in many different locations of Mexico, will also be heard here and there. It has a beautiful timbre, even though it is a somewhat rare tongue.
8.Nuestros Amantes (Our Lovers)
An individual named Carlos is depicted in this video as a regular customer at a local cafe/library. He develops a friendship with a woman named Irene while he is there.
No pasts, birth names, or current ways of contacting each other, or falling in love are allowed in their talk.
The two walk about the city for days using fictitious names, having long chats about love, life, and everything in between.
When Carlos and Irene cross paths with their significant others, things become a little hairy. Their spouses and each other demand that they come to terms with the knowledge and assumptions they have about the other.
This film is a real gem that most people haven’t heard of. It was only nominated for one award and did not win any. The film is nevertheless an amazing exploration of the nuances and contradictions of love.
