Hi Maria,

Thank you for all your suggestions.  Here are the movies that we watch in Spanish 4 and AP:  El Norte, Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Voices Inocentes, El orfanato, Todo sobre mi madre and Stand and Deliver. I am going to order some of the movies you suggested.  Gracias por todo.

Hi Gérard.  I am showing a movie tomorrow to my Spanish IV and AP, "También la lluvia".  It is a fabulous movie but has violence and profanity so you have to prepare your students.  On the topic of inmigration I like "Bajo la misma luna".  I do a unit on the Spanish civil war and I show "Las 13 rosas" which speaks to the role of women.  Finally, my students enjoy "El internado" - scary but with substance.  I hope this helps!

We are watching the movie El Norte in my Spanish 4 class, and discussing a number of issues related to the movie.  We do that in the target language.  They will have to write a composition over the week end.  What movies do you use in the most advances French and Spanish classes?
