OVERVIEW – Spanish Netflix Movies

1. Black Beach (2020) 

Raúl Arévalo and Candela Peña lead this thriller set in African lands and directed by Esteban Crespo . The story follows a top executive who is about to become a partner in a large company, but first he is commissioned to mediate in the kidnapping of the engineer of an American oil company and save the company from losing a million-dollar contract. Adrenaline thriller with a social conscience and a good hand.

 2. Adu (2020) 

Multi-nominated in the Goyas 2021 and one of the surprises of the year of the pandemic, the new by Salvador Calvo (‘1898. The last of the Philippines’) takes us to the border with Africa, in Melilla, where three very different stories will collide: two Cameroonian children trying to reach Europe to survive, a father and daughter ( Luis Tosar and Anna Castillo ) trying to smooth things over, and a group of civil guards who jealously watch the fence through which dozens of Africans try to cross almost every day. 

3. Live Twice (2019)

 The new film by María Ripoll takes us through a cathartic journey for a family, made up of Emilio ( Oscar Martínez ), his daughter Julia ( Inma Cuesta ) and her granddaughter Blanca ( Mafalda Carbonell ). ‘Live Twice’ tells in an exciting and emotional way one last adventure for a man who is losing his memories of him and has one last wish: to find the love of his youth. And, perhaps, live once more. 

4. Voices (2020) 

If you’re looking for a horror movie that combines jump-off-the-couch scares and also a story to get excited about, ‘Voices’ is a great choice. Directed by Ángel Gómez Hernández , it takes us to an old mansion where a family moves with the intention of reforming it, without knowing that some secrets are hidden inside that will forever mark their lives. It is undoubtedly one of the best horror movies on Netflix that we recommend. 

5. The Bookstore (2017)

 Director Isabel Coixet adapted Penelope Fitzgerald ‘s novel , surrounding herself with some of the classiest actors on film and television: Emily Mortimer , Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy give life to a story between books, set in a town in England in 1959 where a woman decides to open the first bookstore in the place. A decision that will not be without opposition from the closed minds of the locals.

6. Yucatan (2018)

 Although we knew him for his action movies, from ‘Cell 211’ to ‘El niño’, director Daniel Monzón launched into comedy with this film, which tells the story of two con men, Lucas ( Luis Tosar ) and Clayderman ( Rodrigo de la Serna ), who defraud naive tourists on luxury cruise ships. Theirs seems like an infallible team, but the beautiful Verónica ( Stephanie Cayo ) will make them fall out and lose their minds. And you know what they say: all is fair in love and war. 

7. Uncertain Glory (2017) 

Joan Sales ‘s monumental novel was brought to the big screen in 2017 to remind us of all that made it great. Directed by Agustí Villaronga, the story takes us to the turbulent 1937, in the midst of the Spanish Civil War, where a young Republican officer, assigned to a fairly quiet and somewhat deserted post, falls hopelessly in love with an enigmatic widow . The drama is served. 

8. Animals Without Collars (2018)

 Director Jota Linares (‘Who would you take to a deserted island?’) made his feature film debut with this film, which introduces us to a politician, Abel (Daniel Grao ), committed to his fight against inequality and to helping people in need. But it is his wife, Nora ( Natalia de Molina ), who keeps a secret that could change everything.

 9. Boy (2019)

 This great and daring debut feature by Jorge M. Fontana explores the forms of postmodernity in our cinema, with many references and great ingenuity to tell its story, which follows a young man who starts out as a private driver. The protagonist ( Bernat Quintana ) will have to divide his attentions between his personal life, which hangs by a thread, and his professional affairs, which involve two business people and a very important agreement. 

10. The Hole (2019) 

Netflix turned this Spanish film into an international phenomenon, and rightly so. Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia directs this surprising film that takes us to a strange reality: a group of prisoners lives in a vertical structure made up of dozens of levels, and through all of them a platform full of food descends once a day. With two people at each level, those in the top positions will eat like kings; those at the bottom will have to starve for a month (until the positions change). Social metaphors, nightmarish futurism and tension in abundance. When you’re done, you can watch some movies similar to ‘The Hole’ that you can’t miss.
