It's time to vote for the best Spanish language movies of 2019. There are many from which to choose because there are several Spanish-speaking countries, each with its own thriving film industry. The titles on this list come from Spain, Mexico, and Argentina. Every genre is represented, although romances, comedies, and thrillers are the most common. 

In recent years, Spanish and Mexican films have found popularity around the world, thanks to the increasing number of people who speak the language. One of the best Spanish language films of 2019 is No Manches Frida 2: Paraiso Destruido, which was released in North America in March and grossed an impressive $9 million, despite playing in fewer than 500 theaters. It has made $26 million globally, according to The Numbers, a website that keeps track of motion picture grosses. It certainly won't be the last to make such a strong worldwide impression. Spanish movies are also more accessible than ever with streaming services such as Netflix (just check out our list of the best Spanish movies on Netflix for proof).
