El Metodo (2005) - Friday 18 January 9pm

The story tells of seven people that have been selected among several applicants for one final round to determine who will get an enviable, executive position for a mysterious corporation. The seven applicants are submitted to a series of psychological tests - known as the "Grönholm Method" - that starts eliminating the applicants one by one. It is warned at the beginning that one of the seven people is an employee of the corporation posing as an applicant to evaluate the others. As the applicants are discarded, the race for the position becomes more tense and sinister. In the end the "mole" will be revealed and only one of them will get the desired position.

Awards: 10 wins & 12 nominations & IMDB Rating: 7.5/10

La Educacion de las hadas (2006) - Friday 25 January 9pm

La Educacion tells the story of Nicolas,(Ricardo Darin) who falls in love with two people, Ingrid (Irene Jacob) and her seven years old son Raul.

All of them have hidden secrets and wounds that will appear in the process of knowing each other.

This could have been a melodramatic movie if not were for the light touches which are the trademark of the director, and for the magical underlines that surrounds the narration.

Awards: 1 win & 3 nominations & IMDB Rating: 6.2/10

ROMA (2005) - Friday 1 February 9pm

Accustomed to years of loneliness, Joaquín finds in the young journalist a bridge to the forgotten years of his outh in Buenos Aires. It is to his mother Roma to whom Joaquín owes his free, bohemian spirit and the aspirations shared with her in the shadow of the memory of his father will awaken in Joaquín the desire and the impatience to recover all he had, so far, believed lost.
