Did You Know?


When receiving the prize for her CIG 4 prototype Moira says "I'm going to be the 7th Spanish Nobel Prize winner before I turn 30". Actually, there has already been seven Spaniards awarded the Nobel Prize: José Echegaray y Eizaguirre (Literature, 1904, shared with Frédéric Mistral), Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Physiology or Medicine, 1906, shared with Camillo Golgi), Jacinto Benavente (Literature, 1922), Juan Ramón Jiménez (Literature, 1956), Severo Ochoa (Physiology or Medicine, 1959, shared with Arthur Kornberg), Vicente Aleixandre (Literature, 1977) and Camilo José Cela (Literature, 1989). William Lawrence Bragg was the youngest-ever laureate, at the very early age of 25 (Physics, 1915) and still remains as the only one who received the prize before 30. See more »

Enjoyable animated movie
1 September 2006 | by xromaoxSee all my reviews

good Spanish traditional animated movie, better than a few i've seen in the last months, the voices are all in English, so if you don't like to hear movies spoken in other language then English like me it's an important factor. the movie has a very driven storyline but very well explained, it tells the story of a samurai that awakens from the past to get the key to a magical portal, that opens a door to a dimension of hellish creatures, and it's his job to prevent it from happening, the animation is good if you look it was done on low budget, it refers many historical reference and culture of Spain, since the whole movies takes place in Spain(2004), hope to see in the near future something like this but in my home country Portugal. in conclusion it's a very nice movie to watch hope you like, has much as i did =)
