Looking forward to new millennium
When we ask ourselves whether it is still appropriate to use the term 'film musical' while referring to a certain kind of movies, what we are taking for granted is that we surely cannot apply the term to cinema in general anymore - something we have been doing for years. When we are talking about the Spanish cinema, we are facing the same problem. This book actually derives from the necessity to find a reformulation of certain ideas in order not to fall into commonplaces that keep us from recognizing what has happened during the last years. The main doubt that occurred in this case was the question whether it is still appropriate to speak of the Spanish cinema - whether this consideration isn't insufficient in order to describe everything that is happening in these instances. From this point, a large group of critics have tried to establish a general contextualization, an inquire arranged after different generations, an exploration of the actual state of the cinematographic genres and the various intersections in the opinions that the Spanish cinema provoked between people of different countries. With all these claims we have tried to open the path for future investigations on the views that have started to construct, cinematographically, the new millennium.
