Ciclo de cine - Semana cultural de la eoi Ayamonte

Yesterday we watched "Shrek". Here I leave the music video and an activity with the song. Have fun!


Complete the gaps in the song:
I thought love ........
Only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else
But not for .......
Love was out to get to me
........ the way it seems
Disappointment haunted
All my dreams

And then I saw her .......
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

I thought love ........
More or less a given thing
The more I gave the less
I got, oh yeah
What's the use in trying
All you get ........ pain
When I wanted sunshine
I got rain

And then I saw her ........
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

What's the use in trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine
I got rain

Ciclo de cine - Semana cultural de la eoi Ayamonte

Yesterday we watched the film "Elizabeth, the Golden Age". The movie is a display of the main events which took place during the reign of Elizabeth I. Cate Blanchett portrays the queen with unique talent and strength. Ten years prior to this film, Ms Blanchett starred in another movie about the queen. It is about the young years of her life and how she came to the throne. I leave you here a sample of the film.

Foreword: Mary I is the queen of England and married to Philip of Spain. During her reign many protestants and heretics were burned to death, and that is why she got her nickname, "Bloody Mary". She believes she is pregnant when she actually has a tumour in her womb. In this excerpt Elizabeth is taken to the Tower of London on charges of treason. I find this video interesting because we get to see how life was in the tower, a terrible place in those times. Enjoy and if you want to see the whole film, it is posted in youtube.
