Title: Name of the Grotto
Post by: noodles_leone on January 23, 2009, 05:07:02 PM
I am currently very far from my home for a few months, without any possibility to check my DYS DVD. So i have to ask you the question, guys: does anyone know if the grotto has a name in the movie?

ps: it's for a script. I'm looking for cool sounding names that are references to some bloodbath. I have a few, but i thought this one could be good too.

yes, far too cliché... I'm looking for less direct/famous references (Erzurum, which is an armenian province; taos, where people were burnt in the church...).

The event being referenced is the Ardeatine caves massacre.

Thanks a lot. No name in the movie? doesn't Juan call it by some name when he decides to stay with Sean before the bridge sequence?

Before the bridge scene Villega says "Everybody has to go to San Isidro caves"
