Off Course (2015)
Although this film, directed by Nacho G Velilla, is a comedy, it is also a multi-layered affair that touches on a variety of thought-provoking subjects. These include cultural barriers, dementia, unemployment, family crises, and infertility. Against this often dramatic backdrop, financial professionals Hugo and Braulio, a scientist, are drawn to move to Germany in search of better prospects. They have witnessed a TV show describing this location like some glowing paradise, where vacancies are abundant. But they encounter a harsher reality, coming across fellow Spaniards who are struggling to make ends meet, some of whom have got into petty crime and drug-dealing. The sparkling dialogue and endearing characters will soon draw you in.
Like Water for Chocolate (1992)
A Mexican movie, this Spanish language feature is a charming romantic drama that is another perfect choice for your first Hispanic date. Based on the debut novel by Laura Esquivel, it was selected as Mexico’s entry for the 1993 Academy Award for best foreign film, and when it was released in the USA it became the highest-grossing film in a foreign language. Set in the early 20th-century, this is a sweeping tale of family, as the various protagonists experience hardship, emotional turmoil, love, and the struggle between traditional values and progressive attitudes. At times an emotional rollercoaster, this will have you both on the edge of your seats.
Orbiter 9 (2017)
How about a complete change of tempo for your next outing? This science-fiction drama is set in a distant future, where Earth’s natural resources have been poisoned by successive environmental catastrophes, leading to a young girl, Helena, being confined to a space capsule orbiting an exoplanet. When a maintenance engineer boards, Helena thinks this will be her last opportunity to experience lovemaking, so they enjoy a liaison. But things take a surreal twist when she realises things might not be as they appear. Has she been duped the whole time, and his spaceship is not traveling to a new world at all? Is this but a hoax? This intriguing film will certainly provide talking points.
Spanish Affair (2014)
Our next choice brings us back to Earth, with a delightful comedy directed by Emilio Martínez-Lázaro. The main character, Rafa, has never departed his hometown in Andalucia, to the south of Spain, when he meets an attractive girl from the Basque region, on the country’s northern frontier with France. He pursues her deep into the Basque heartland, where he decides to pretend that he is, in fact, a Basque, leading to a series of hilarious adventures and misadventures.
Palm Trees in the Snow (2015)
The last of the Spanish movies we wanted to mention is another romantic drama, set in the 1960s, and featuring a girl discovering a mysterious letter after her father dies. Seeking answers, she embarks on a journey of discovery that takes her to Africa. In unraveling her family’s secrets, she also encounters romance. It may not be as deep as some of our other suggestions but it is perfectly enjoyable as you snuggle together on the couch, with refreshments to hand.
A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
