Preface: "We have lived with movies since early childhood and their existence is so obvious to us that we cannot remember the moment of the first screening in which we participated. We treat cinema as something natural that has always existed, although it is a very young art, asit is less than 130 years old. Cinema is a narrative art - it tells us stories that we need, ones we are looking for; the stories that give us joy, pleasure and hope; or the stories that provide the emotions we need at this particular moment of our life. Narrative stories have always surrounded us, and we can find them everywhere. We live in a world of narration because narrative form is the closest to reality itself - it imitates it most accurately and that’s why we have no problem to understand the stories we watch and listen to. Even if magical characters or non-existent places appear in the story, the characters follow similar desires as we do and organize their lives in a similar way to ours. They care for their family, have relationships with the others, and defend values that are important to them in a similar way the common viewer does. We understand film characters feelings, emotions and motivations because we are guided by them as well."(...)
