It Is Time To Watch Ricardo Darin's Movies, And Here Is 5 Of Our Favorites Ones

The other day I was speaking with a coworker who said he loves Latin American movies. That is unusual; even though Latino films have improved and we have three Mexican directors winning an Oscar in the last five years, South America is not a synonym of good cinema. I can tell you many good films, actors, screenwriters and directors, but Latino Cinema needs some public relations and marketing to become a world reference.

In any case, this guy (who says he likes those movies) did not know "Ricardo Darin." It was a surprise. Ricardo Darin is the most famous Argentinian actor and he is a superstar in Spain. Then, I thought if this coworker does not know about Darin, many of my readers as well, and the world must know and watch Ricardo Darin's movies.

Anytime you are zapping and you see his face on the picture of this article, you must stop and watch the movie; no matter what. Darin is not only an amazing actor; he knows how to choose a film. Even his worst movie is better than many others you probably paid to watch in the theater.

This article is not about his bio because you can find it on Google; this article is to help you to introduce Darin in your life. Here are my top 5 Ricardo Darin movies.

1. "Son of the Bride."



"Son of the Bride" is one of my all-time favorite movies. With this film, I discovered Ricardo Darin and the fantastic work of Argentinean cinema. This movie was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Foreign Language Film." It is the story of Julian, who is divorced and tired of his life. By the film, we are going to watch his travel from a regular guy to a better man. One thing I love about this movie is any time I am almost going to cry; the screenplay changes and makes me laugh.

2. "The Secret in Their Eyes."



Maybe you know better "The Secret in Their Eyes" because there is an American version lead by Julia Roberts, but it is not even close to the Argentinean version. In 2010, "The Secret in Their Eyes" won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and it is so good that in a 2016 poll of international critics for the BBC's 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century this was voted one of the 100 most excellent motion pictures since 2000.

In this film, we have love, suspense, politics, mystery and terror. At the end, when you think you know what is about to happen, the story changes and gives you the biggest surprise. I am not going to summarize the movie because I want you to watch it.

3. "Nine Queens."



With "Nine Queens," you can see Ricardo Darin is good in drama and comedy. This story is not as intense as the two previous. It is more a kind of Argentinean "Oceans Eleven," but I promise you will enjoy it.

4. "Truman."



"Truman" is also a comedy, but it has enough drama to make this movie special. It is the most recent movie I am suggesting to you. The story is about two old friends and a dog; it sounds like a silly film, doesn't it? "Trauman" teaches how a simple plot can be a fantastic movie. It won many international awards.

5. "Chinese Take-Away."



"Chinese Take-Away" is maybe the movie I like the least in this list. Don't get me wrong; it is a good movie with a fantastic message (as always when Ricardo Darin is in a film). The story is about a Chinese guy who does not speak Spanish and how he interferes in the protagonist's life.

I hope after this article, you will watch at least one of these movies. I promise you won't regret it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
