¿Qué he hecho yo para merecer esto!! by Pedro Almodóvar( Visual )

9 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gloria (Carmen Maura) is a cleaning woman and housewife who is addicted to amphetamines. She lives in a crowded apartment with her miserable taxi driving husband (who once forged Hitler's diaries), her two teen sons--one who is selling drugs, the other sleeps with older men, and her crazy mother-in-law who keeps a pet lizard. Driven by despair, Gloria sells off one of her sons, accidentally kills her husband and sets into motion a nightmarish chain of events in Pedro Almodovar's absurdist black comedy."--Container

Plácido by Luis García Berlanga( Visual )

23 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a small Spanish town, a group of old ladies decide to celebrate Christmas Eve with a "Sit a poor man at your table" dinner: each wealthy household of the town will have a homeless person dining with them that night. The celebrations also include a parade, and in it we find Plácido, the humble owner of a three-wheeled truck, whose family is forced, alas, to live in a public lavatory because of the lack of rent money, and who has to pay the second bill on his truck before midnight. If it sounds a mite bathetic, that's now how it plays in this classic, hilarious film, because Plácido is no sad wretch, and his smug benefactors may find their charity case having notions of his own
