  • The seventeen key films analysed in the volume span a period of thirty-five years that have been crucial in the development of Spain, Spanish democracy and Spanish cinema
  • The films encompass different genres (horror, thriller, melodrama, social realism, documentary), including both popular and more select art house fare
  • It is also an international response, the films being made in different languages: English (as both first and second language), Basque, Castilian, Catalan and French
  • The filmmakers include Guillermo del Toro and Lucrecia Martel, Almodóvar, José Garci and Carlos Saura, Cesc Gay, Alejandro Amenábar, Iciar Bollaín and Woody Allen
  • This sparkling collection of academics and writers have produced a very readable and very cogent volume
