Level 4: So extra Kanye cried.


The Shape of Water (2017) Dir. Guillermo del Toro.

Drama Level: 2/4

Received 13 leading nominations at the 90th Academy Awards.

“I don’t know… Would I tell you about her? The princess without voice. Or perhaps I would just warn you, about the truth of these facts. And the tale of love and loss. And the monster, who tried to destroy it all”.

Shakespeare in Love (1998) Dir. John Madden

Drama Level: 2/4

Although it´s not historically accurate, courtesan love is always a delightful thing to watch. Plus, Joseph Fiennes looks breathtakingly handsome as Shakespeare.

“I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No… not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that… overthrows life. Unbiddable, ungovernable – like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love – like there has never been in a play”

Tres Metros Sobre el Cielo / Three Steps Above Heaven (2010) Dir. Fernando González Molina.

Drama Level: 3/4

Based on the novel by Federico Moccia, this Spanish romance between a good girl and a bad boy will sure make your Valentine´s Day the sweetest cliché of them all.

A Little Bit of Heaven (2011) Dir. Nicole Kassell.

Drama Level: 2/4

If it wasn´t because the main character has terminal cancer (this is not an spoiler, it literally says so in the synopsis) I would give it a 1/4 on drama because it is a very pretty, relieving (and also reflexive) romantic comedy, even though it touches a very delicate subject such as cancer, it is excempt from stereotypes (beginning with a Mexican-Jewish doctor interpreted by Gael García Bernal which is the prettiest thing alive) also, Whoopi Goldberg is in there as well as Peter Dinklage (the midget from Game of Thrones).

50 First Dates (2004) Dir. Peter Segal.

Drama Level: 1/4

It has Drew Barrymore and Hawaii, you couldn´t ask for more.

No Se Aceptan Devoluciones / Instructions Not Included (2013) Dir. Eugenio Dérbez.

Drama Level: 4/4

This is a very touching movie about a lovely father-daughter relationship, directed, written and starring by the Mexican comedy genius Eugenio Dérbez. It is actually a comedy, but I give it a 4 because of the ending, you´ll see.

Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013) Dir. Abdellatif Kechiche.

Drama Level: 4/4

This French coming-of-age drama film is definitely essential.

Love has no gender. Take whoever loves you”.

I miss you. I miss not touching each other. Not seeing each other, not breathing in each other. I want you. All the time. No one else”.

But I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. My whole life”.

Me Estás Matando, Susana / You´re Killing Me, Susana (2016) Dir. Roberto Sneider.

Drama Level: 1/4

A serious portray of a troubled relationship in the funniest way possible. Gael García Bernal (AKA The prettiest thing alive) is also the protagonist in this film based on Jose Agustín´s novel “Ciudades Despiertas”. The movie can get slow sometimes but the end is totally worth it.

Call Me By Your Name (2017) Dir. Luca Guadagnino

Drama Level: 4/4

 “Just remember, our hearts and our bodies are given to us only once. And before you know it, your heart is worn out, and, as for your body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less wants to come near it. Right now, there’s sorrow, pain. Don’t kill it and with it the joy you’ve felt”.
