I'm interested in watching a good foreign film based in BA -- anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks,
Soul

Wong Kar Wai 's "Happy Together" set in la Boca , San Telmo about a gay couple. Paradoxically a non Argentinean director captured very well the esencia of these two barrios.
Check also director Daniel Burman. his films are set in Once (Jewish neighboorhood)

If you are living in Argentina, films that are made here are not foreign films.

This director is a national treasure and his film happy together is a classic of modern cinema. The music from this film The Rough Dancer and the Cyclical Night from Astor Piazzola conveys the melancholy and tension of Buenos Aires to a T.
