There a bride ran away with her cousin. Her cousin was then murdered by the bridegroom’s brother. Given this inspiration Lorca went on to write a play that continues to be popular to this day.

    In contrast, Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso illustrates cinema as a modern social force. From the beginning of the film until the 7.00 minute mark, we see a clay pot on a ledge. Beyond it is the blue sea, the Mediterranean. Camera backs slowly as credits reveals a doorway, a bowl of lemons on a table. Then we hear an older woman's voice on the telephone. "Yes, Salvatore de Vita." The older woman moves into the frame. She identifies herself as his mother. She gains no information. Shot…
