Hi there,

Regarding Almodovar, I wonder if anybody knows where I can get the video for Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown?

I watched this it in a film class some time back and loved it, but the second half wasn't screened and i would like to know the ending. English subtitles will be deeply appreciated :D

Thank you.

Criterion Collection to Release Two of Luis Buñuel's Mexican Films! [Jan. 7th, 2009|09:48 pm]
Spanish Language Films

[music |Madness-It Must Be Love]

Both will be released on February 10, 2009.

Simon of the Desert



Simon of the Desert is Luis Buñuel's wicked and wild take on the life of devoted ascetic Saint Simeon Stylites, who waited atop a pillar surrounded by a barren landscape for six years, six months, and six days, in order to prove his devotion to God. Yet the devil, in the figure of the beautiful Silvia Pinal, huddles below, trying to tempt him down. A skeptic s vision of human conviction, Buñuel's short and sweet satire is one of the master filmmaker's most renowned works of surrealism.

The Exterminating Angel



A group of bourgeois cosmopolitans are invited to a mansion for dinner and inexplicably find themselves unable to leave, in Luis Buñuel's daring masterpiece The Exterminating Angel. Made just one year after his international sensation Viridiana, this is a furthering of Buñuel's wicked takedown of the rituals and dependencies of the frivolous upper classes, full of eerie and hilarious absurdity.

This is the first time that either of this films have been officially released on DVD in the United States and I am dying to watch both of them.

Hola! :) [Feb. 18th, 2008|01:05 pm]

Hello, my name is Bella, and I'm sort of a novice to Spanish cinema - nevertheless, I love it. I've only seen a few Spanish films (most notably, Pan's Labyrinth and Y Tu Mamá También), but I am eager to see more, especially The Spirit of the Beehive, if I ever find it. Anyway, the reason I'm here is because I need your help. My grandparents are really into foreign films, and one of their favorites is a Spanish one, but the can't remember the name of it, when it was made, or any of the actors in it. Basically, all they remember is the plot, which is behind the cut.Collapse )

I know I probably butchered the plot, but if any of you can help me with the name of this movie or maybe where I can find it, that would be wonderful!
