Cristiano Ronaldo might be the most famous, and perhaps the only, Portuguese thing you’ve known or heard about, but there is a lot more to that language than the name of this iconic footballer. Apart from being a beautiful language, Portuguese is also one of those languages that are not spoken in a limited geographical area. The best thing about such languages is that they allow you to cover more ground when it comes to international cinema. It is the official language of six countries, no matter how small, and that means so, so many films for you. Even though English dubbing allows you to watch any film in any language these days, the best experience comes from watching a film in its own language, because many things get lost in translation. With that said, here’s the list of really good Portuguese movies on Netflix that are available to stream right now:
11. Back and Forth (2016)
Every new road is full of an adventure that you didn’t anticipate. This is one of the best things about travelling. You meet new people, learn things from them that can turn out to be the life lesson you always needed. ‘Back and Forth’ tells the story of a man who embarks on a road trip with her son to take him to reignite his relationship with his estranged mother. On the way, however, they meet a group of young telemarketers and decide to take a detour with them.
10. Couples Counselling (2016)
Life is a continuous learning experience. No matter what age you’re at, there is always something that can happen and teach you what you had never thought of before. Keep this in mind! When you’ve worked for a long time in the same field, you might think that you know a lot of things, if not everything, about the job. However, it only takes one task to challenge your knowledge. ‘Couples Counselling’ tells the story of a seasoned relationship therapist who has helped many, many people. But one day, she comes across a couple who make her analyse her own life.
