Award-winning DVD from Mexico & Spain

The Warner Home Video Colecci?n Latina features critically acclaimed, award-winning DVDs from Mexico and Spain, all of which have original Spanish language audio and English subtitles. Warner continues to be enthusiastic about the Hispanic home video marketplace considering Hispanics spend 6.5% of their entertainment dollars on movies compared to 4.7% for the general population (Tom?s Rivera Policy Institute). Additionally, sales of original Spanish-language DVDs have grown 83% from 2000 to 2005.

From M?xico, Warner Home Video brings you La ?ltima Noche (The Last Night) the last installment in the Mexican smash box-office hit trilogy which began with La Primera Noche (The First Night and followed with La Segunda Noche (The Second Night), also released by WHV in September 2005. Starring Mexican legend Andr?s Garcia and Cecilia Gabriela, star of the hit telenovela La Madrastra, La ?ltima Noche concludes the bittersweet stories of an extended family in present-day Mexico City whose love lives are individual roller coasters of hilarity and deeply-felt emotion. The one constant: Family Love is Forever. La ?ltima Noche is directed by Alejandro Gamboa, who also directed the first two installments, and also stars Mariana Avila, a telenovela star and member of the hot Mexican girl-group Mam? No Sabe Nada (Mama Knows Nothing).

Deadly Cargo (C?mara Oscura) is an edge-of-your-seat thriller on the high seas that was a box-office sensation in Spain. Directed by Pau Freixas (Cactus), Deadly Cargo received two Goya Award Nominations ? Best New Actress for Silke, who plays Terra in the film and Best Supporting Actor for Unax Ugalde who plays Hector. The film also stars Lluis Homar (Bad Education) and Adrai Collado (El Arte de Morir). Variety writes, ?Deadly Cargo exploits a decent budget, good performances and self-assured helming with such skill and energy that it transcends the clich?s inherent in it?s inevitably d?j? vu plotline.?
