    I have recently watched a documentary about Leonardo da Vinci, a famous Italian artist and scientist.
    The documentary shows most of Leonardo’s life which is strenghtly connected by his art. For example, you can get to know when he had finished one of his most famous paintings: “La Gioconda”, why there are still many doubts about who is the woman portrayed, the reason he decided to choose her as subject, etc… All things I did not know before watching this documentary!
    A lot of details are given so that people can increase their knowledge on Leonardo’s art: you have to read enormous books to find out these kind of details.

    However, the documentary does not just talk about Leonardo’s most famous works. You can also watch: “Dama con l’ermellino” or “Nella cerchia del Moro”.
    Moreover, you do not just look at the paintings and listen to an external voice. In fact, these kind of documentaries can result very boring. Though, an actor who plays the role of Leonardo can really make you feel how his life had been and imagine his feelings when something had happened to him.

    In the end, I can definitely say I would advice these documentary to everyone who is tired of the usual and boring documentaries: if you want a resource which helps you to learn a lot and also to have a good time as you are watching a film, well, choose this one!

      Good job Ambra.

    Unfortunately I don’t use to watch documentary, but I recalled a special one watched when I was a little child. I was at my French class and teacher placed a French documentary called “March of the penguins”.
    This documentary tells about penguins breeding season and how they survive in this tough moment in their lives. I felt so touched during this documentary because there are moments they can’t get over Antarctic barriers and end up dying.
    After watching “March of the penguins” we are able to learn more about penguins cooperation life that actually is very hard on breeding season because they need to feed themselves and in another hand they need to care about their eggs which needs to be warmed all the time.
    We clearly understand how penguins couple duties works to help each other get through difficult times offered by a hostil habitat where they live. They have to be clever step by step in order to keep alive, otherwise they might be killed by something. However, penguins couple see in each other a partner for life that allow them to live even though sometimes life’s not that easy.
    “Mach of the Penguins” has pretty gorgeous footage that make us interested in the documentary up to the end. I’m afraid I cannot write more about it because I watched it a long time ago, but I’m sure that worth to watch even because this documentary is a Oscar’s winner.

      Some slightly difficult to understand phrases, but otherwise very good José. ?

    Thank you, Jonny! ?
    I keep using my mother language (Portuguese) grammatical structure, but in English is totally different and I need improve this.
