‘I think that overall this is a great resource. The author has put much effort putting it all together and it makes best possible use of a movie that portrays a very specific Spanish reality. The resource guides thoroughly the students not only through the movie but to explore Spanish cultural topics and sub-topics (relationships, social issues, cinema and film genre vocabulary, etc), as well as Spanish language.’ – H Cambero, Spanish Teacher and Independent Reviewer
