Top Movies At The ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival

By | 26 April, 2017

The ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival in Manchester was no doubt one of the biggest artistic events of the year, where several great artists showcased their masterpieces. Among the great works of art on display were some world class movies. A lot of really great movies premiered this year, which makes it especially difficult to select just one as the top film. Naturally there will be a lot of conflicting sentiments about the choice we make but that is expected. Sometimes we just have to agree to disagree.

The Top Movie At The ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival

Presos (or Imprisoned, in English) is for us the best film that premiered at the festival. This is not to imply that there were no better movies. No far from it. It is the one we chose because of the possible impact the movie can have on society.

This movie was directed by Esteban Ramirez. The Costa Rican film director managed to bring the best out of this really touching story. Presos is based on a rebellious teen who wants to escape the confines of family. When she gets a job as an assistant for the chief executive at a dodgy firm her life is spun into a new direction. She goes down a dangerous road which involves prison inmates and drugs.

Presos is a movie that outlines the core realities of the life of inmates and the people that they leave on the outside. It also highlights key dysfunctionalities in modern families. Everything in the movie comes together to give a very entertaining time. The movie will thrill you to the end, and even beyond. Only online casino gambling can compare to the thrills that are on offer in this movie, visit for online gambling.

There are several high moments in this movie but the ending takes the top prize. Do not expect any spoiler alerts here. We are not going to tell you a lot about the movie except that things really get interesting after the slow start.
