    Any good Spanish films? I love Almodovar films and have seen pretty much all of them. I also really liked Y Tu Mama Tambien and also saw Amores Perros recently. Any others?

    Gracias

    ... be careful of the awkward moments at the beginning when the stepfather peers at his girlfriend's daughter's breasts :lolwut:

    I laughed for so long after coming out of that film... I don't think anyone else from my class found it that funny though :dontknow:



    You could always try La Casa de Bernarda Alba but it's a tad depressing

    Gracias, Sergio. Ya he visto Los Ojos De Julia, me gustó mucho. Javier Bardem y Penelope Cruz protagonizan Vicky Cristina Barcelona, verdad?

    By the way, de donde eres?

    De nada, Isabelle.
    Yo no conseguí ver Los Ojos de Julia. Me acerqué al cine hace un par de semanas con unos amigos a verla. Pero una amiga me empezó a explicar algo que le había ocurrido... a los cinco minutos de película nos fuimos ella y yo, para poder hablar. Así que no la he visto, y como lo que me contó me trastocó un poco, pues le guardo mal recuerdo: no creo que la vuelva a ver.

    Sí, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, y Scarlett Johansson. La trama (plot) en sí no vale demasiado, pero el hecho de que pase en Barcelona, y que mezclen tan bien castellano e inglés, con algo de catalán, la hacen especial.

    Pues soy de Barcelona, born and bred. ¿Y tú?

    María, eres llena de gracia (Maria, Full of Grace) - Could not recommend this film enough!! So good - it's about a Columbian girl that swallows drugs and smuggles them into America to escape life in her own country. Shocking, but an absolutely fantastic film! It's also a good way of hearing non-Spanish accents

    Where did you get a copy of the DVD for Bernarda Alba??
    I've been looking everywhere without avail, love the play.

    I don't like el Laberinto del Fauno, but I'm just not into fantasy, The Orphanage is freaky as.

    OP, for Almodovar, have you seen Habla con ella?

    Er, well it's in my college's library and my teacher also has a copy so we've just been changing between the two whenever we misplace one. Have you tried your local libraries? I always find that they're a good place to start for DVDs that everyone else has forgotten about

    Our local library is useless, and I've searched the internet til I was blue in the face :confused:. Thanks though.

    I realise you have London in your username but is that definitely where you live? Manchester City Council's libraries are surprisingly well-stocked given that little to no people are ever in the one that are near to me. I'm sure you could always use your college card to try and use the library of a local university and explain to the librarian on the welcome desk that you'd like to borrow a book and that it's pertinent to your studies - I must've used that a million times, especially for Politics journals and various Pushkin books. All they've ever wanted is confirmation from college and it's worked a treat ever since
