El Hoyo (“The Platform”)

One of the newer films on this list, "El Hoyo," or "The Platform," is a spine-chilling thriller that gives a dystopic view of how the world might be if we don't take care of it. In a prison-like structure, people live on various levels, each depending on his/her social class. Every now and then, the titular "platform" descend into each level, providing the resident with a ration of food. However, as the platform descends upon every level, some don't get as much while others are able to selfishly horde for themselves. And when people are driven to the brink of starvation, there's no telling what they'll do!

Nuestros Amantes (“Our Lovers”)

You'd think that Spain, with all its beautiful actors and passionate writers, will go for romantic films with a lot of passion in them. And oftentimes, this is true. However, it's nice to take a break from all of that and watching something gentle blossom before your very eyes. See "Nuestros Amantes." Translated as "Our Lovers" it tells the story of a love-challenged man who meets a woman in a coffee shop and begins dating her. Sounds normal, right? Well, the twist here is that the pair doesn't take their relationship outside the said coffee shop, let alone to the next level. Will their love prevail? Watch the movie to find out!

Perdiendo el Norte (“Off Course”)

This is what happens to the two protagonists of the 2015 comedy, "Perdiendo el Norte." After seeing an ad of how Spanish people "found success" in BErlin, the two highly-educated young men move to the German city in search for the same success. However, to their surprise, it's actually difficult to work in Berlin as well. They end up working at a Turkish cafe in the city, all while pretending to hold successful careers to their families back home.
