Cinema of Spain and Portugal by Alberto Mira
Book Description"The Cinema of Spain and Portugal" is a fresh, concise and wide-ranging introduction to and overview of Spanish and Portuguese cinema. This volume contains 24 essays, each on a separate seminal film from the Iberian peninsula. Films from the early era of cinema up to the present day are featured, and the contributors discuss a broad sweep of issues such as popular genre, social and political context, the influence of the European 'new waves', and the emergence of challenging contemporary filmmaking that highlights gender and national identity as prominent themes. The cinema of leading directors such as Florian Rey, Juan Antonio Bardem, Luis Bunuel, Victor Erice, Manoel de Oliveira, Pedro Almodovar and Joao Cesar Monteiro is discussed through in-depth studies of important films including "La Aldea Maldita" (1930, 1947), "Aniki-Bobo" (1942), "Viridiana" (1961), "Spirit of the Beehive" (1974), "Journey to the Beginning of the World" (1997), "Torrente" (1998), "All About My Mother" (1999) and "Sex and Lucia" (2001).
