This is the characteristic from BBClearningenglish. com for more information and _____ the view go to the BBCworldservice. com ____ post card. R hello, Im preen and welcome to 6 minute english. With me today in studio is Ms. Feifei. hullo in that location. F Hi Rob. RIn todays programme we atomic number 18 hash outing use ups enlighten us cry and why we actually enjoy observance something that makes us burst into tears or a nonher words to cry disclose loud. We are excessively looking at the language associated with weeping. So repetitive out loud surely this is something that you check d peerless, Feifei? F Im afraid yes so I beat done that.R Is there a particular film is made you cry? F I think you require to devour the film Turner and Hooch. And how about you Rob? RWell, universe a man obviously I will n constantly cry puff up almost. There is an old childrens film called The Railway children. At the end, when the childrens father returns from exile, his daughter runs out the station platform shouting My daddy my daddy. That makes me misty-eyed. F You re big softy. R I suppose Im. Now Feifei, in front we discuss this subject further, heres your question for today Which film has win the most ever Oscars awards? Is this.. . Ben Hur b. Slumdog Millionaire or c. Gone with the wind F I think Im spillage to go for decide b. Slumdog millionaire. R ok. Lets make up ones mind out if you are repair at the end of programme. Of course, the 85th academy awards lookter cognizen as the Oscars were held recently and there was one major weepy that won some(prenominal) awards. F a weepy? you mean a film that makes us cry. R Yes and that film was Lei Miserables. I have seen it substantively is a tearjerker. It literally causes tears to roll down our checks. So why do we chose to see the film or video that makes us depict so emotional ?F I suppose it s the mark of a good film if it causes us to reveal our emotions. A really grim story if its hale acted and directed, can really make us snivel (another word for clamorous). And a sob srory one where the character tries to shake up our charity for him or her can have the same effect. only if what is it about a film that can makes us cry when we cant cry in real conduct? RWell, according to psychologist Dr Everon Lemon, we allow our emotions to be imfluenced when we watch a film. What word does she use to mean influenced? Dr.Everon Lemon People want to have their emotions manipulated, because then they are allowed to have them. We spend so much of our life being told you shouldnt feel like that, you dont feel like that when in event we do you like that. And both the visual and the auditory allows us to know what emotion we are meant to feel. F So Dr Everon Lemon says we like to have our emotions manipulated, influenced by a film. In real life we told how we should feel. R But when watching a film, at the cinema for example, we can let our emotions loose.But there is som ething else in a film that effect our emotions and gives us goose bumps or a feeling that makes our hair stand on end and we get little bumps on our skin. F Yes, Dr Lemon says there are visual and auditory clues that provokes our feelings so that is the style of the pictures and the music or sound effects that are used. R( music) Like the music in the Jaw movie although thats not really a tearjerker. F oh Come on, Rob. I bet you cried at the scary bits. R I told you men dont cry.Although there is one film that has had grown men shout their hearts out which means they have been crying uncontrollably. That is the film Toy Story 3. F in truth RYes, I dont think its because the film is sad but because watching it makes men nostalgic about their young and perhap they can see their kids reflected in the story too. F Well I bet these men were crying alone. They wouldnt want to be seen crying in public. R Well not according to Phillip Sheppard who composes or writes film music. He think s let our feelings out, he calls it by catharsis is better in a classify. Mr.Phillip Sheppard All of us diverseness of need to find a catharsis, especially within a group to have this sort of place to have an emotional response. It ends up being something when you need to have that kind of release. As British people we are terribly bad at it I think. But when people find an outlet for it such as a film, especially when they are in a crowd, peoples emotional responses are much more instantaneously responsive. R So he says we all need to find a catharsis. organism in a group is a good place for letting your emotions out. When you watch a film with others you react to other peoples emotional reponses.F So if one person cries then other people will kickoff to cry too. Unless you are British of course. R That is what Phillip Sheppard thinks and we could say Its a crying dishearten, meaning its regrettable or its an unfortunate situation. F Ok, Rob well lets not cry all over spilt mi lk. R Huh F Lets not get upset over something quite small. Can I Just have the answer to todays question, please? R Yes, of course. Earlier I asked you which film has won the most ever Oscars? F And I said Slumdog Millionaire. R And you were wrong. The answer is actually Ben Hur.The 1959 Film has won 11 awards the same number has also been won by Titanic and The Lord of the rings, The return of the King. Well Feifei before we go, please could you remind us of some of the cryng-related words and phrases that we have perceive today. F Sure. We heard burst into tears misty eyed a weepy tearjerker blub a sob story goose bumps crying their hearts out its a crying shame cry over spilt milk R Thanks Feifei.
