What movies to watch this weekend on Netflix, HBO and Prime Video if you want to enjoy good Spanish cinema
If you want to continue watching Spanish films a week after the Goya awards, on Netflix, HBO and Prime Video you have a multitude of options to choose from.
Streaming platforms have served so that a good number of Spanish films find their audience or compensate for a smaller distribution than they deserved. Although depending on the company there are many differences regarding the amount that can be found, in all of them there are a few that are worth it.
Unfortunately, with the coronavirus pandemic, going to the movies has largely stopped. Netflix, HBO and Prime Video have become the way to continue knowing new movies, but also the way to go back to some that are of great quality and still available to all subscribers.
And that without forgetting alternatives in which other films can be found, such as Movistar + or Filmin. In the case of Disney this does not happen, although with the addition of Star it is possible that soon we will begin to see some change about.
The Infinite Trench – Netflix
This is one of the best examples on how to make good cinema even if the narration is limited for much of the film to a single space. The infinite trench tells the decades that a man spends locked in his house to escape the Franco regime in an impressive film shot with two actors who shine in a big way: Belén Cuesta and Antonio de la Torre. It was of the best films of 2019 and an example of how to direct without any scene and maintaining the tension in the spectator at all times.
