"Hola. ¿Cómo estás?"
"Bien. ¿Y tú?"
"También." Almost all of the class is sitting down.
"¿Dónde está La Reina?"
This is the beginning of our Spanish 5 class.
Hi! Welcome to SeñorCine.com!!!
We are nine students in Spanish 5 in a high school in the United States of
America. At the beginning fo the year we faced a dilemma. We needed to decide how we were going to spend our year together
and what we were going to learn. After some debating, we decided to watch movies and at the end ofthe year, as a final,
we were giong to make our own movie. It came out that, as time went by, we changed our minds and decided to put up this
web page to tell about the things we had learned so that others could learn them, too.
We think that we are probably the only class in the United States that has
watched so many Spanish language movies. (Señor jokes that we know more about Spanish cinema than the Spaniards do).
We saw movies made in Spain, argentina, and Mexico. Other movies that we saw were made in the United States. Some
of the great directors were Saura, Almódovar, Carrera, Buñuel, and Rodriguez.
The English movies that we saw were seen to compare the same versions
in Spanish. Hollywood based their English movies on the Spanish ones. We compared themes and styles. Most
of the Spanish styles are very different from the American counterparts.
Putting up this webpage is also a way to leave a legacy behind. This
is not only our final exam; this web page is adedication to the CLASS OF 2005.
It is our hope that future classes will add to this page --making it a bigger, better, and more interesting place
for you to visit.
As you read through the movie reviews, we hope that you will find a few that
you will watch. Learn with us the culture of different places as you watch the movies.
