It's not groundbreaking, but the format lends itself well to language improvers. I thought Darin was very strong in el secreto, but personal taste.

My favourite might be Historias Minimas, the pooch is the star.

I haven't seen many Argentine movies, but "Un Oso Rojo" was strangely engaging. "Cuento Chino" was portrayed as a comedy in its trailers, but it's more somber than I expected - still a decent movie.

One of the first Argentine movies I watched (it's not very hard to understand) was Un argentino en Nueva York ... Francella is hilarious in that one!!

I also have a soft spot for the 90s chick flicks like Alma mia. Or, let's be honest, anything with Pablo Echarri :wub:

This is not a great choice if your Spanish is weak and you want to watch without subtitles, but Nueve Reinas starring Darin is the best crime moviein in Argentine cinema history.
