i just remembered a movie that I really liked a lot.  I don't know if you had talked about it here. I imagine some of you know it but it would be a good movie talk about (if you hadn't already done so).

Its "Strawberry and Chocalate" or "Fresa y chocalate" from Cuba (1994) in spanish.

It is an excellent film, I cannot believe I totally forgot about, and if you haven't seen it,  well I don't want to say much but it has a gay theme and it is very sweet and funny and a little sad.

I'll look for it. I just saw Pan's Labyrinth which was in Spanish and set in Spain and I also loved the films of Bunuel.

I recommend it too. Fresa y Chocolate is a beautiful tale about two men, one gay and one straight, who seem to be very different but are actually very similar. It also depicts interesting images of Cuba and the cuban life, in a non stereotypical fashion. It is a wonderful  and thoroughly well acted movie.

Wasn't it a great movie.  It was on IFC a lot a few years back and I watched it several times.  I am not sure if it does compare to BBM, maybe somehow.  But it was so interesting to see life in Cuba and it was so sweet and well done.  I do recommend it a lot.
