There are a series of clips from YouTube for pupils to watch. They are either films that relate to Italy or Italian films. Pupils need to watch the clips, and try and think about the key issues that are listed on the handout e.g. the style of the film, the cinematography, the period that each represents. This lesson could start with a discussion about different aspects of cinema, and a key vocab list. Pupils should watch the clips with the aim of deciding whether they can discern any key differences between Italian and non-Italian films.
Pupils then have a series of questions about their own tastes in cinema. They can answer these and this could lead to further discussion.
