Great Spanish films for a rainy day!
23 March 2020 @ 21:06

IT'S GOING TO be a long month now that the Covid-19 prevention confinement has been extended to Saturday, April 11 – but perhaps now is the right time for it, if ever there was one. Outside, it's raining across most of the country, especially on the coasts, so you probably wouldn't have been inclined to go outside anyway.

And what better way to lighten up a wet, miserable day – quarantine or no quarantine – than curling up on the sofa with a great film?

This could be your chance to watch all the Spanish films you've heard are so good, so you don't feel out of the loop. Even though mainstream Hollywood blockbusters, and massive international productions, including UK favourites, are shown in cinemas in Spain as they break, the line-up for your local flicks will nearly always include at least one latest home-grown release. Unlike in France where the law states that a minimum of 40% of films shown at cinemas must be French or from a French-speaking country, there's no such requirement in Spain – only a conscious effort to give national films a good airing so the Spanish arts industry does not disappear amongst the glittery mist of Tinseltown productions.
