Intro to recent Spanish cinema

Here is a short list of films which I think provide the best entry into the world of Spanish cinema. The list is particularly focussed on recent films (ie 1999 onwards) but the highly influential ¡Ay, Carmela! is also included.

  • The Sea Inside
  • Take My Eyes
  • Pan's Labyrinth
  • All About My Mother
  • Open Your Eyes
  • Talk to Her
  • Cell 211
  • Volver
  • The Orphanage
  • Bad Education
  • Butterfly
  • Princesses
  • Ay, Carmela!
