¿Películas españolas?

¡hola a todos!

¿Sabéis de cualquier películas buenas en español que yo debería? Miré Laberinto de Pan, y El Orfanato por Del Toro, pero no otros. La tienda tuvo muchas, ¿pero no sabía cuál comprar ni alquilar?

chau

Corrections above. Yes, a list of Spanish movies que hay que ver antes de morir would be good indeed.

Doh! Yo olvido "ver" stupido error(estoy in las nubles) También, se puede usar cualquier (any) en lugar de "aglunas" (some).. ¿Es mala gramatica?

¿Sabéis de algunas(some)/cualquier(any) películas buenas en español que yo debería ver?

Muchos gracias!! yo agradezco tu ayuda

No, cualquier, as used in your sentence, isn't what you wanted to say. First off, the adjective needs to be plural (to agree with the noun). Second, it isn't even necessary to say a word in that spot. It is understood. But, when you're asking if there is any of something, you use algún/alguno/algunos/algunas. While it is true that cualquier can be translated as any, it conveys the idea of whatever/whichever.

¿Tiene corbatas blancas?
Sí, ¿quiere las de seda o las de poliéster?
Cualquiera (de las dos).

Do you have any white ties?
Yes, do you want silk or polyester ones?
Any one will do. (Whatever, either one)

Pedro Almodóvar is a widely-acclaimed Spanish film producer. You might like some of his films.

El aro.

Cañitas.

Theses are ones that you will can understand them for the language.
