Argentine films are Oscar winning, entertaining, thought provoking – multifaceted. While the hits of 70s were restricted to light-hearted slapstick, it was in the 1980s that Argentina began again to make movies with heart, soul, wit, and intelligence.
Spanning a range of genres, Argentine film can help you understand the complexities and attractions of the beautiful country of Argentina, the culture – and the language. Don't expect a blockbuster, all-guns-blazing spectacular. Argentine cinema goes deeper.
Watching an Argentine movie really does give you an insight into the psyche of the country's people; their hopes and dreams, their prejudices, their fears, and their dark pasts. But that doesn't mean every Argentine film should come with a history lesson and will move you to tears – some are just plain entertaining.
