Going to Spain? Watch this movie.

Jump to last reply

In preparation for a trip to another country, I like to watch movies that have been filmed there and highlight some historical or cultural aspect. An excellent one I just saw tonight is so thought-provoking, beautiful and touching....It's Spanish title is " La lingua de las Mariposas" and it's translated to "The Butterfly" or "The Butterfly's Tongue" in English, made in 1999 by Director Jose Luis Cuerda. It's viewed through the eyes of a 7 year old boy, but I guarantee it will bring tears to your eyes. I got it through Netflix. Although set before the Spanish Civil War, it's message, unfortunately, still rings true today.
