French-Spanish third meeting : Movies

The third meeting topic was movies. In this session, we have chosen a movie original from our countries and the aim was to try to explain the plot and the traits that we like or not about the movie.

The first one to present his movie was Simon. He introduced us to the french movie “Ce que le jour doit à la nuit”. He did a great effort to explain the plot of the movie in Spanish and he did a great job, we understood the plot in perfection and also we have given him some feedback about the vocabulary used and what this movie suggests to us.

Carlos introduced the movie Amores Perros, it was a movie that I actually have never heard about before. He also did a great job and a good effort with the french language.

In the end, it was my turn. I introduced the Spanish movie ” Hasta que dure la guerra”. It’s a film about the Spanish civil war. It relates to the early stages, before exploding the conflict and during the first combats. It’s not focused on the battle, like other movies. This movie is focused on the person Miguel de Unamuno, a Spanish intellectual and writer and relates how society was facing the times and the challenges. How fascism was shooting down all the thinking minds.

It was a cool session overall!
