Students will get to know Alejandro Amenábar’s 2004 award-winning film inside out and be fully prepared for the writing exam. The structure offers the perfect balance between guided classwork and independent study:

  • Before: Students learn key cinematographic vocabulary and get an overview of the plot and characters, giving them the tools to fully analyse the film.
  • During: Students work through the film scene-by-scene, examining the events and themes through a variety of exercises including vocabulary, comprehension, grammar and translation – perfect for ensuring comprehensive understanding.
  • After: Students take an in-depth look at the characters, themes and symbols in the film, as well as the techniques used by the director to achieve his goal. Revision activities, essay-writing tips and exercises, exam-style questions and model essays show students how to apply their knowledge directly to their written exam.

  • Plus! Answers for all activities and indicative content for the exam-style questions.
  • Plus! Special appendix on the topic of euthanasia – perfect for students who wish to explore the issue further as part of their oral exam.
