Luis Tosar is an actor and singer. He is probably best known for his roles in movies such as Take Me Home, Cell 211 and So I’m Going to Wash This Garden, among others. He has also released a number of solo songs. He is currently one of the most famous Spanish musicians of our times.
He was born in Fuengirola, northeastern Spain, the town where many famous films were filmed. One of them is the brilliant film about a suicidal radio jockey who tries to kill himself after discovering that his wife’s radio station has been broadcasting messages from the afterlife. Luis Tosar played the character of Don Francisco in that movie, making him one of the few Spanish actors to have a leading role in a Hollywood film.
In addition to that, Tosar also had a role in another well-known film of the period, Los Menos (The Detective). Another of his Spain films that won awards is El desafio (The Desolate Area). He then went on to play the lead role in El dia de un amor (The White Balloon). It was a very good role because it was in the period when Spain was going through a serious political crisis which could be related to its economy. It was a very Spanish film about corruption in the government. Luis Tosar’s filmography also includes participation in several television shows, most notably one that he did for several years, Blue.
In 1992, Tosar made his English language debut in the movie adaptation of his first novel, El secreto (The Devil’s Dictionary). It was a very good movie and featured him alongside previously mentioned actor Antonio Banderas. This film also starred Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina. No other UK native has done as much with Spanish language films as having Luis Tosar. This is because of his popularity in the United Kingdom, specifically in England and the surrounding area.
Another of his Spain films that you might want to consider is Cell 411. This is a remake of the 1976 Italian film, Cielo, starring Diego Luna and Mario Berrio. This is also a Spanish film that features Antonio Banderas. This is a great choice if you are studying Spanish, as both Tosar and Banderas are excellent actors.
One other film you might want to consider is the superb crime thriller, Los Perros. It is set in Madrid in the mid-1990s, and tells the story of two murder cases that are solved by a pair of detectives, Miguel Angel Lopez and Felipe Rivero. In many ways, it is like a combination of Deuce Bigalow and Miami Hotel, in which also starred Diego Luna. While not on the same level as those two previous movies, Los Perros did make some excellent Spanish films, including el desnudo (The Desnudo Kid), which are about a drug trafficker that eludes the police, and el anaron (The General). However, this one really works, and stars Luizdel Roman, who is best known for his roles in films such as The Godfather, Casino, and As Good As It Gets. Also, Pedro Alba, who was more famous for his TV role, would also have had a good role here.
If you are studying Spanish at college, or even if you just want to brush up on your skills, then you should definitely take a look at either The Hard Way or Cezanne and Beverly. These are both excellent Spanish films, and while they aren’t exactly cultural gems, they will help you get an idea of what Spanish cinema is all about. Plus, they are very well produced, which is always a plus. Cezanne was made in Spain by the ever popular Miguel Aleman and features an all star cast, which includes Vallejo, Garcia Parra, Enver G Alonso, and Maribel Cruz. If you are studying Spanish at a college in the United States, it is highly recommended that you watch this movie, because it will teach you a lot about how Spanish sentences are formed.
As far as I’m concerned, the best Spanish films that have been made in the last five years are either Luis Cano’s Meet the Pansies or Pedro Alba’sjuicy Cow. Both of these films star youngsters who play the part of a poner, which is essentially a slang word for a homosexual. These two youngsters make great actors because they have a way with words, and they are able to bring in a unique flavor to their roles, which make them very watchable.
