WELCOME TO CRISTINA DIAZ VAILLAGOU'S BLOG FOR THE ADVANCED AND C1 LEVELS OF ENGLISH AT THE EOI SANTANDER

Film director Milos Forman died last week. One of his most famous films was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, translated into Spanish as Alguien Voló sobre el Nido de Cuco. Here’s the actual meaning of this expression:In American slang ‘cuckoo’ means ‘crazy’ or ‘madman’. Therefore ‘cuckoo’s nest’ is an apt term for the mental hospital which is the setting of the book / film.The title is a line in an old nursery rhyme about three geese leaving a flock, “one flew east, one flew west, one flew over the cuckoo’s nest”.
