Learning a foreign language is not simply about being able to communicate with other people but also being able to better understand their culture, history, values and struggles. Part of this involves familiarizing yourself in their artistic productions, be it paintings, poetry or cinema. The latter two are definitely more useful in understanding a language and the last the most so in increasing aural comprehension. Here are some excellent examples of Latin American and Spanish cinema that I’ve found to always be aesthetically pleasing. My apologies for not giving plots synopsis, but they can be found on the Amazon links and in my humble opinion are all worth viewing.
