Una buena película: Valentín

Valentín is about a small boy living in Buenos Aires with his grandmother in the late 1960´s, seeing his father occasionally and wondering why his mother never comes to see him.  It's a lovely, touching story.  The actors speak very intelligible Argentinian Spanish, so it's good practice to listen.  And, you can read the subtitles, too.  I found it on Netflix Instant streaming but you may find it on Amazon as well.   La recomiendo.
